Craft Reorganized

I reorganized my craft room today. It started out as just straightening up to get to my table so I could sew a special order. I got carried away and here are the results. I now have room to store my finished items. The nice thing is we already had this shelving unit in our basement so I was able to repurpose it.

How many things did I sew?


Besides all the sewing I have been doing for Thursdays on 1st I also altered a bunch of dance costumes for Elizabeth's dance teacher. Here is one of the costumes I made for some little boys.

Here are some of my favorite skirts I sewed for this summer. I only sewed about 40 skirts, 20 messenger bags 100's of hair flowers, 9 capes and 20 appliqued shirts :)

 Here are a couple of my favorite messenger bags.

I will have to get pictures of some of my appliqued shirts and onsies later.

Sewing Frenzy!

I just started Thursday's on 1st Street this month. It is basically a craft show with all handmade items every Thursday during the summer. My friend and I have a booth. This year I got really into it and sewed like crazy. My house of course was a wreck but at least all the sewing helped me stay sane :)
Here's a picture of some of the stuff I've made:

I've made about 9 reversible capes and sold all but 2 of them in the 2 weeks I have been out there.
This is a Frozen cape:


I also made Superman/Batman capes.
 I had a blast designing princess skirts. Here is one of the Frozen skirts I made:

 My girls had fun modeling the skirts!

This is a Little Mermaid inspired skirt. (When Ariel wears the pink dress).
 Snow White



 I designed and made a Belle skirt but didn't snap a picture of it before I sold it. I will be making more though. I have lots more princess skirts I have designed on paper but I haven't had time to make all of them.
