Bags for others, and one for me

These are a couple of the bags I made for other people as gifts.

This is the Multi-Tasker Tote by Anna Maria Horner. I made another one of these for myself and will write a review about it in another post.

Super Tote by Noodlehead. I blogged about my first one here.

 241 Tote for a music lover.

 And this is the 241 Tote I made for myself. I just love this fabric!


More Licorice Dresses

The Licorice Dress from Colette Patterns is one of my favorite patterns. Very easy and quick to make, needs only a little amount of fabric, and can be worn casual and dressy.

I wrote a review here

Today just a couple of pictures of my other three Licorice dresses. The first one got just finished today. 

The fabric is Peach Skin fabric from GirlCharlee. It is easy to sew with and very comfortable to wear. Works surprisingly well in New Mexico summers, considering it is 100% polyester.

This one needs to be worn with a slip underneath. It is completely see through. Should have lined it, ooops!

Another Peack Skin, also from Girl Charlee.

The last one is a very soft voile by Anna Maria Horner. I saw that the collar and dress are matching up perfectly after I finished the dress. What an awesome coincident. 

 I lined it with white silk. The voile itself was too sheer.

 The hem of the lining is slightly off, but who cares, right?!?


Socorro County Fair 2014

This year I decided to enter some of my handmade wardrobe in the Socorro County Fair. Three years ago I had entered a German Chocolate Cake and won best in show.

It is a very small Fair and they are happy for every entry. All in all I had nine pieces in different divisions. Sorry for the bad quality pictures, but the light in the exhibition hall wasn't all that good.

Lets start with the quilts. The first one is Sanctuary in Oasis by Pat Bravo

The second one is the Giant Star Quilt

 Two Best in Show! And I met some members of the Socorro Fiber Arts Guild. They invited me to their meetings. I am looking forward to it!
