...to show you I still care. I would love to bring you an awesome sewing project that I finished on my awesome new sewing machine. But that's not how it always works out (unfortunately!).
A couple things to share before I get to the embarrassing pictures. Saturday Hubs and I went to the Air Force Ball. It was fun, see?
But I didn't plan ahead very well and ended up with way too much to do on Saturday. Friday night (I think, could've been Saturday morning I'm not really sure now) I knew I needed a bag for the ball and I didn't have anything. Yeah, no black or silver clutch or small bag. You'd think with all the bags I have ONE of them would work. Nope.
No problem, I've made clutches before and it's pretty quick. Except I had no nice fabric or neutral fabric. So I went to my closet. Not a whole lot there either. Apparently I'm more of a casual fabric kind of girl. I found a dress that was in the "goodwill, oh wait I might use that for a project so don't take it yet" pile. Too small for me but black and lacey (lacie? who knows...). Anyway I cut and I sewed. Quickly.
I didn't have the hang of manuvering the stretchy fabric in the sewing machine though so I didn't even catch the lace in some sections. I ended up using a tiny black wristlet that was only big enough for my id and lip gloss. Maybe my experiment would work better as a hat...
Probably was pretty funny. The moral of the story is plan ahead. And dresses don't always make good purses. But you can still have fun even if you were super rushed and have no bag. See? That's the look of fun people.
