I have gotten quite a bit done on the Apparel Arts pants! The two pairs has also morphed into *three* pants now, but more about that under the Cut. )

My Fabrics came from spoonflower!!!
I am really happy to finally have this fabric in hand, along with some of the new swatches. I am still waiting for the new "white work" Swatch to arrive, you can see the failed one under the cut.

I have been a bad bird all weekend and been avoiding my homework (Math, bleh) As a result I was productive in other areas! First I completely cut out the Quilted corset (Which took forever!) I made a bird hair peice, drafted two pairs of pants (Both of which I am going to be sewing in the near future) and made more gluten free mini pies.
I think I am going to try and wear the bird tomorrow, hopefully get a picture less blurry.

Today I finally got my Spoon Flower Swatches in the mail!!!
This is the fabric I designed (based off of an original embroidered 18th century garment) to make a jacket with the prize money I got from winning the Craft Stylish competition: http://izodiea.livejournal.com/27274.html
The Floral border will be placed at the hem of the jacket, with the rest being stripey goodness :)

Now that I have done tests I can officially open my spoon flower store: http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/izodiea
Right now I am only offering one fabric in two colorways (the best of the test swatches) but I have more swatches already coming in the mail. If those work out I will slowly expand to more styles/colors. For example, one of the swatches is of the above design, but done in such a way that when printed on voile it will look like faux white work embroidery.

See More Swatches... )

On a side note, Spoonflower briefly "forgot" that I had Won the contest (Even after I mailed them all the legal papers they requested I fill out) As an appology they gave me an extra $25 credit. Kinda weird...but better for me in the end I suppose, it covered all the swatches :)
