The answer: Wearables. Ever since I laid my eyes on this cover of Belle Amoire, my creative brain was forever changed. I have never seen anything so lush and beautiful and innovative for a wearable. This is way beyond the quilted vest.
Now, that isn't exactly what I plan to make, but I do have a pretty prairie dress developing in my head. Actually, I've sketched it out a couple times in my sketchbook. I have described it to only one person on this entire earth, and she started SQUEALING with glee!! The question is, can I pull it off?? The good news is that this category can be 3 or 2 layers. The bad news is I don't actually know how to sew. I can't follow a garment pattern to save my life. This is going to be a major learning curve.
With the theme being, "Making Waves", it's too late for this quilt (see below). I bought this fabric off of Spoonflower and have already sold it at a garage sale. I really hope to see it in a quilt in October!
|she's making waves. get it!?|
sigh. We'll see. In the mean time, I'll just keep dreaming up this dress. I'll put in my 'Intent To Enter' for now and see what happens over the summer. I have until September to make this a reality.
See you tomorrow for Tips on Tuesdays!!
