Two weeks ago I had a customer in my shop ask me to ship to Sweden...not a problem at all. The day I shipped his order we began talking about a custom order! (I really was blown away by the fact that he commissioned a 2nd order before the 1st one arrived!!!) So the last 2 weeks have been spent in a whirlwind search for the perfect fabric and sewing an outfit unlike anything I'd attempted for Monster High!
I am realizing just how spoiled I was living near Columbus GA...I had not only a Hobby Lobby, a JoAnns, and a Michael's but also a Hancock Fabrics all within 20 minutes of my house!!! Well up here there in a Michael's about 35 minutes from here and our Walmart carries a
In the end I spent a day running around the shopping plaza 35 minutes away at every shop I could think of that might have textiles! I found the exact fabric I was looking for at Walmart...in a dress...however the dress was $13 and it was all BLACK...with a TINY black and teal shrug. UGH so NOT worth my $13. I kept looking and found a few racks over a black and white striped pullover. It was 100% cotton too so I knew I would take the dye perfectly! AND it was only $7 for the shirt which was ALL stripes...ooh and some cute lace trim too!
Okay, okay enough rambling...on with the pictures!!! =D

Before you ask...no I didn't draw this...I have this really neat sketch book by Fashion Angels . It has pre-drawn bodies and comes with a bunch of stencils for the clothing! For someone who can't draw a lick, this is amazing!!! I have drawn several more ideas for outfits that I plan to work on! It's neat (and NERVE WRACKING!!!) to draw a design and then bring it to life! Although I think I will consult my fabric stash before drawing patterns since I am in a fabric store wasteland....oh how I miss all my fabric stores!!! lol
