Spoonflower

I sew a lot.

I just finished a quilt for Barbara and I’m taking a break before making my next quilt:

It’s called the “Spruced Goose.”

Even though I know how to sew clothes, I seldom do on account of I usually get bored with my project and never finish making it.

But lately, I’ve been thinking it might be nice to work on some clothes for myself.

Specifically, leggings.

I found a website called SPOONFLOWER which sells AMAZING unique designs which they custom print onto your desired fabric – spandex, cotton, cotton jersey, etc.

Lately my inspiration has been coming from things I see online.

  • Mushrooms
  • Narwhals
  • Cocktails
  • Mermaids
  • Sloths
  • Butterflies
  • Candy
  • Pineapples
  • Geek

To be honest, it all started when I tried to find mushroom leggings.

I didn’t like anything I found so I figured, why not make it?

And thus, I started shopping Spoonflower.

What do you think?

Metamorphosis

I’m working on an outfit for the Metamorphosis theme of Burning Man this year.

I fell in LOVE with this gorgeous light blue butterfly kimono:

Does anything represent metamorphosis more than a butterfly?

I think not.

So I bought the kimono and to go with it I have a beautiful ombre wig:

To be perfectly honest, I’m not sure how many showers I’ll get to take at Burning Man so I’m bringing wigs to cover up my ratty playafied hair.

Since I’m not planning on going naked UNDER the kimono, I’ve got a pair of white jeans shorts and a white crochet cami to go with it:

And (just to make things interesting) I have a pair of BABY BLUE antennae to wear with the outfit.

Just to show that I have indeed metamorphosized into a beautiful butterfly-woman.

I was tempted to buy little butterflies to put in my hair but MOOP.

And we can’t have MOOP!

So let’s see how long my white shorts stay white now, shall we?
