Fairlen 208 Utility belt

You know how most women’s clothing doesn’t have pockets?  Well, that drives me crazy cuz I don’t like carrying around a purse.  It always falls off my shoulder and then I put it down and forget it.  Its bad.  I’ve lost my wallet so many times….  So I make skirts out of jeans and my husband’s old pants, and thats cool, but it gets old, and what if I want to wear a pretty skirt that doesn’t have pockets?  So I looked on Etsy to see what they had for “pocket belt”.  Lo! There were many beautiful pocket belts!  The nice ones run about $75. I wanted to make sure I liked this idea before investing a pile of money into it so I made one for myself out of leather scraps and belts from the thrift shop.  Let me know what you think!

I made sure that the big pocket was big enough for my phone and my passport.  The other pocket holds my wallet quite nicely.

Fairlen 206 Fabric Business Cards

Wow, its been a while.  So I was told to make a blog post about the fabric business cards that I printed up to pass out at a theater job fair as I look for work as a costume designer.  I used mostly scraps of dyed silk from my silk painting class I took 10 years ago, and I printed my info and QR code directly onto the fabric using Gail’s method from My Repurposed Life which I found on Karen’s blog The Graphics Fairy.

Fairlen 205

Knick wants to me to dress up as Kida for Halloween.  So I was watching Atlantis and spotted this young man.

he is one of the warriors that you only get to see for one second.

Also, last night during my boring bar I did a little fashion designing.  I want to make a black velvet shrug with a high collar.  And I saw this woman wearing this extra long button down shirt and it was super cute!

Cor, wearing Lissa’s white dress and a fur coat he acquired for some rocks.  You like that cat hair to Cor’s right at about shin height?
