i was blind before i met you…

rain

This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They’re spreading blankets on the beach

sight

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

age

And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you had just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

piano

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

T-shirt recon

So, I was bored again and I decided to go through the old clothes at the top of a closet. I found an old, baggy long sleeve, and thought it could use a little sprucing up. I had a before picture, but it got deleted. Anyway, here’s what I cam up with:

shirt2

Excuse the weird pictures. I took about 15 and those were the only two that worked moderately well. Honestly, I’m not sure about this shirt. I like it, but it’s super girly and I did a HORRIBLE job on the piping, so I don’t know yet. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

That post yesterday was pretty weird. Sorry about that… It was about 2:30 AM and I couldn’t sleep. I just needed to write it all down. Ha. Maybe next time I should use my journal….

I am going to make another dress… and I’m going to make it before I’m even finished with the last one -_-
Anyway, I’m going to make this dress:

…and I need to pick a fabric. Here are some ideas:

fabric9

I want it to look a little bit vintage/retro, but I also don’t want to look like I’m 40. I want it to be really weird and different, but also cute. I don’t know what I’m trying to say ^^
If you have an opinion on fabric, I would really like to hear it! I never said I was very decisive about things…

I finally found the camera… so I present all of my random creations:

First off, a skirt. I saw a picture of a checkered skirt with lace, and I had to have one. So I bought fabric and winged it. The waistband came out a bit big, so I tacked it smaller and I have to wear abelt with it. Oops.

(This picture is a bit fuzzy, but it showed a bit mroe detail than the others)

And a shirt. I saw this pillow on Craftster, and I loved the design. So I put it on a t-shirt. I almost never wear color, especially blue, so I don’t know if I’ll ever wear this -_-

And another shirt. Again, I saw it on Craftster and I had to have one. The stencil came out super stiff, so I hope I can wash it and it will soften. It is a bit hard to get on and off becuase of the stiffness :-/

I also made a bag. I got bored with my old grey curdoroy messenger bag, so I re-created it into this:

bag1

bag2

The curdoroy is now on the inside. As you could probably tell a) I had a lot of bored time this week, and b) I can’t for the lfie of me figure out how to spell corduroy/it changes eveyr time I write it 🙂

$10 on E-bay. *Whee!*

The Dinosaurs are dead =(

I have been veyr bored lately… so this is what happened:

sweater

I had a black shapeless hoodie that I never wore, so I slimmed it down and added appliques. I hate mirror pictures, they’re usually lame, but no one was around to take my picture. I need to clean my mirror. It’s vile.

Here’s a detail of the dinosaurs and the embroidered hearts:

I was inspired by a post on Craftster.com.

I’ve been very bored lately, but that will change soon. I’m going to a concert in one week, another concert in June, Six Flags two days later, other random concerts, my friend is visiting, and I’m making a movie. But that’s a secret… not really. It’s just not quite done yet. Actually not quite started ^^

I finally finished my dress! Which is good becuase I have to wear it for my sister’s graduation on Saturday.
dress

Yes, I know my pose is dumb, but I never know what to do with my hands in pictures…. whenever I put them on my hips I look snobby. Oh well, not ym problem. The dress is made from a red polka dot skirt I found at the thrift store for $1.50. I stitched up the sides a little and gathered the back. The bow took me forever to get right, but after about ten tries I finally got the correct amount of gather. The dress came out a bit, um, fancy for my usual but I need to branch out from my usual grey and black creations 🙂

I also made this robot purse:
bag
I saw an idea for it on Craftster, and as I could not sleep that night I stayed up crafting.

I really want to make this design, into a t-shirt. I really like robots right now, but I’m sure as soon as I start making robot stuff, everyone I know will be doing it also. *sigh*.

I finally found out the name of that comic I posted the other day. It’s Pon and Zi. I didn’t realize it was copyrighted, so here is a link. It says it is alright to post as long as a link is provided, so I’m going to have to go back and change it… Oops.

Jewelry is loverly. I don’t wear it often, but I’m going to start making it more often. Probably mainly earrings and bracelets. Necklaces bother me, and rings always fall off. I wanted to make guitar pick earrings and then I saw a pair at Hot Topic. I was very much annoyed 😛

This dress is so pretty. I’m not going to make it becuase it is a little too fancy, but I really like vontage clothing. It’s so classy and pretty.

Haircut is next Tuesday. I am so excited! I just have to decided what to get. I shall now sign off and leave you all with this:

I haven’t started it, but as soon as I get my fabric I’m going to make the dress above. I’ll be using the pattern on the left, but I’m going to thicken the straps and maybe take out the tulle stuff. At Hobby Lobby there is a black with white polka-dotted fabric for about four dollars per yard, so I’m going to be using that. The girl looks like she took to many doses of happy pills, and her shoes are gross. Look like she macramed them. Ha. Macrame shoes, now there’s an idea…
This week I have been sowing so much, but I don’t have anything to show for it quite yet. I’m making a blue ‘cardigan’, but I need lining fabric and buttons to finish. I’m making a Black skirt, but I need a zipper to continue. I’m making a plaid jumper, but I need a zipper for that too. I’m also working on a ‘mystery’ project, but I ran out of thread. It isn’t all that mysterious, but I’m not sure if it will work…. hmm, hopefully it will.

I love the thrift store. I went on Saturday, and bought a lot of vintage patterns for only $0.10 a piece. They are all in good condition, and are all in my size. I think I want to make this one:
vintage
The one in the center is my favorite- it’s slightly mod looking. I think a gray with white stripes would be nice, but I doubt I’ll find exactly what I’m envisioning.

fruits
Going to make this too. I’ll have to draft my own pattern, but I’ve done it before and it isn’t too hard. It’s strange ebcuase I normally dont’ wear dresses, but I haev been really wanting to make some lately.

I know this post isn’t too exciting, but as of yet I have no FO’s to show off. I did finish making a KittyVille Hat. I need to block it first though… it came out a little big for my head 🙂 It’s a weird greeny blue color. I dislike blue, but I like the combonation and it looks interestign against my hair-color.

This weekend is my sister’s graduation party. My uncle is bringing his wife and she jsut had a baby girl! I am very excited. I’m hoping to get to the yarn store tomorrow to pick up some yarn to make the cardigan from Weekend Knitting for the baby. I’m not sure if I can knit that fast, but I will try…

Threadless.com is having a $10 shirt sale! I think I may get one, but I’m not sure how much money I have 😀
I like this one:
Landline’s Revenge
99 LuftBalloons
Bigfoot and Friends
A Room with a View
Missing Piece

I could just screen-print a few shirts, which would be cheaper… and original. I guess I’ll just wait and see. I want to make a ninja shirt, or maybe a pirate shirt.

And to end it all off, I will leave you with this. It made me laugh for some odd reason..
