Creativity: Stir, Shake and let go!

Happy Wednesday!

Have you ever shaken a pop and then opened it after?…For fun…Β You know exactly what will happen. It will erupt like a volcano. Boooooommmmmmmm!!!!……Pop everywhere…

Like the carbonated beverage that is shaken and then released, so is our creativity. It must be stirred , shaken and then have expression in our lives.Β 

Whatever it is today that you are passionate about or are yet to discover, may it find expression in the earth and become a contagious contender!

Stir, shake and let go!!!

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew sew sewwwwwwww……

God Bless

Remembering what a special day one year ago today was. All the friends and family that came near and far to celebrate with us. We truly appreciated your love, acts of service, kindness, prayers, support and well wishes! It was the best Pre- wedding celebration a couple could ask for! πŸ™‚

To throw in a little handmade clothing in there, I feverishly worked on this outfit a few days before the picnic! Finished just in time to make a fashion statement. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by as always. See you in the next post!!!! The sewing Chronicles are definitely continuing!! Just keep sewing, just keep sewing.. what do I do I sew sew sewwwwwwwwwwwwwww…..

Sunny with a Chance of Summer!

Hello there July!!!!!!

Summer=Good weather for a Maxi Dress!!! Β πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I had the draft for this dress sketched out in my notebook since last year I think, or maybe 2014.Β This was suppose to be *The MAXI*, my gorgeous, flowy, armed with pockets kind of functional summer statement piece.

I never got around to making it last year. But that’s okay cause I did it finally this year!! Found this lightweight floral polyester material to use as a tester. And I am in love with it. This was my trial prototype you could say. It came out amazing to the point that someone saw it and said they wanted to buy it as is! πŸ™‚ SOLD…..I know that’s crazy right. Sad part I know the fabric sold out. Hmmmmm….. I will go hunting next time I am at the fabric store in event someone left a piece behind. You never know..

TheΒ whole process in my head transpired well in the cut out stage. Very nerve racking since I was winging it basically but with some key measurements involve to ensure fit, things came together. It’s suppose to be flowy but to proportion of the size. So This size can fit a medium and a large. It may fit a small but a belt may be required to avoid a mooo-moo -licious look πŸ™‚

I am ready for round two and making the second one. Thereafter I will try to get this baby into a sloper and ready for duplication! Ensuring of course I get the measurements down pat and the shape too. It has an unusual shape which makes it flow a certain way. Hard to explain, I just let the scissors do its thing. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Cut cut…

Goal reached, happy camper!

Excited to make one for my own wardrobe. I have a great Rayon print lined up for mine. πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by, stay tuned in July I have a few custom pieces in the works that i will share with you.

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew, sew, sew, sewwwwwwwwwwww
