The first commission completed for the month were some Mickey ears featuring R2D2.
Next I reupholstered two dining room chairs. Unfortunately I didn’t get the best photos of them.
My third commission for the month was a flapper inspired dress for a themed party. I made the pattern myself! I am very happy with how it turned out!
The rhinestone pieces are actually pairs of earrings I found. I cut the posts off them with a pair of jewelry wire cutters. I then needed to file the backs a bit to make sure all the post was gone. And lastly, I hand sewed them on. The dress is fully lined and has an invisible zipper at the side.
My fourth commission was a pair of performance shorts inspired by Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad.
These presented and interesting conundrum. When using the serger, what color thread do I use? For where the two colors touched I used both red and blue. In constructing each leg, I used all red or all blue. I spent a lot of time switching threads out on my machines.
My final commission was a half circle skirt for an Ariel costume for an elementary school play.
Now on to things I made as trials/for myself!
I made Star Wars themed Mickey ears!
I don’t have a real reason to make these for myself, ( aside from they are cute) but I am sure they will come in handy someday.
If it hard to tell in the photos, I embellished the stars on the blue pair with rhinestones so they sparkled and added a Mickey head in black rhinestones on the BB8 pair. I enjoy making these, I hope I am inspired to make some more. Anyone what to send me to Disney? 🙂
