Keep those home fires burnin’!

Howdy folks!…I’m calling myself a designer now, a real designer…not that I wasn’t before, I have created quite a few simple bag patterns and even drafted a dress from one I already own…but I am now a real designer because of the garment I’m going to show you at the end of this post…but first I feel I should just share the cool story surrounding this fabric what it became…
I shared before that I visited Britex Fabrics a while back…that is my HOME, I love that place…it has 4 floors of the prettiest fabric and notions I have ever seen…now with such sewing goodness, anything from there comes at a hefty price…My huny’s Mom knows how much I love to sew so she went there and got me a yard of thee coolest comic book fabric in the world…I accepted it graciously and tearfully because I loved it that much and appreciated that someone would get me something I actually want instead of something they want me to have…
I couldn’t make a quick project out of it, its just too cool…so it ended up being a real “project”….I worked on it for almost a month, adding “designer” touches as I thought of them….I added jump rings to the arm of it and searched for the perfect Black fabric for the other touches I wanted to add…After I added the jump rings to my top, a designer on Project Runway added jump rings to one of her garments!!!!!…I beat her to it!!!!..I’m going to be ready for Project Runway or Fashion Star in a few minutes…I promise you I am….(preferably Fashion Star; Project Runway’s clothes are for lack of better words “not my cuppa tea”)
I was supposed to be making a Chambray dress but for some reason I couldn’t keep my mind off my top…I decided to work on it and ended up finishing it this afternoon…I am VERY proud of it and I love how it turned out…I cant wait to wear it because the snazziness of it will show deliciously…Sewing keeps the home fires burning; at least that’s what they say……Okay enough rambling, photos now…

this is the side with the snazziness but you can hardly see it…*bummer

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
