WIP Wednesday - Already?

Seriously, it's already Wednesday? Where is the week going?  I haven't had time to really sit down and work on much since last week was spent making 28 stuffed slimes for the Slime Rancher party!  They seemed to be a hit, but of course I forgot to get a picture of them all together...I'll have to round up the stragglers at our house and do a photo shoot.  ;)
Tula Pink Slow and Steady Line, with green and gold glitter matches perfectly!

I did work on a new shirt for myself since I have a goal of either selling 2 purses on etsy, finishing 2 more purse orders, or using up 6 yards of my fabric before I can pre-order the next awesome fabric I want (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!).  The shirt is finished, but I haven't worn it out of the house yet... the pattern was pretty easy, the Mama Claire by Made for Mermaids, but I think that making clothes isn't my best skill... I'll try another pair of leggings and a cardigan next, and then decide if I can figure out fit better.  If I were super skinny or fit and trim, it would be a lot easier!

Finally got a large panel of the Espresso might still become a shirt for me!

Current Projects:

  • Stuffed slime for birthday party - stitching a few more, then stuffing and sewing shut...
  • Cocoon Cardigan in Marauder's Map fabric
  • Peg Legs in Rebel Girls print
  • Handkerchief Purse - figure out dimensions and design
Tattooed mermaid is pretty sweet....

Next Projects: (orders and using up fabric)

  • Game of Thrones Rosie Purse Changed to super fandom Sydney
  • Floral Wars Cross-over shirt for me
  • Dachshund Pick A Pocket Wallet (still finding fabric)
  • Enderman hooded towel
  • Purse for swap (Magnolia Mini Messenger) in Tula Pink fabrics
I think I'll use all these Tula Pink fabrics in a might be the craziest purse ever!
