my walk at the end!

My taffeta skirt and shirt with lace sleeves looked really good on my model. I think my gold dress was the biggest hit though...I don't exactly know what to do with it now. I'm so sentimental I might keep it.

The BBT-fashion show-finally came and went. I was ready! My dresses looked great IMO and I really had a great time. My dress wasn't new, and I didn't design or sew it up but I thought I looked pretty good anyway. I'm almost done with college (only two classes and internship left) and now I'm ready to start making a profit on my designs. I think I'm too timid with my advertising, I know I can do it but I'm afraid that people will think I'm not as good as I should be.

I can make gifts-my first bags

Making something for a friends special day is great because they know that you took time out of your busy (or otherwise schedule) just to create something for them. Doesn't that mean that they mean a lot to you? I made this bag for a friend's birthday, I woke up that morning and started cutting out the pieces and was done fairly fast for it to be my first time. I used part of a shirt and some soft caramel-colored fabric I've had for a long time and kept meaning to make a skirt out of. I plan to make more bags in the future, and have actually already cut out some beautiful dark blue satiny fabric to make a bag out of for a friend who just had a baby. I've been really busy with school but now I hopefully will have a little time and I'm ready!! I start my internship the first week of June, I hope I really like it.

I DID IT!!!!

Yes, I actually visited the internship site that I wanted today, and I'm going to be interning there in June and July! I'm so excited that I almost wished it were right now. Darn it, I wish I could just be outta this quarter of school. The only class I'm really getting to enjoy is illustration 3 and I'm not so happy with it either rightn now because we were given an impossible deadline. I have weekends that are unavoidable. We have to go to Grampy's to clean, and witnessing on Saturday, and then to church most of the day on Sunday, it doesn't leave much time for homework. Strangely, people assume that because I don't work I have all of the time in the world-including some of my family.
Anyway, just had to put the good news on here.
I'm working on putting some bags on etsy, what's really cool is that I whipped one up for a friends birthday without using a pattern and now I need to really perfect the skill. I used a piece of another garment to give it a cute look, and almost everyone I showed it to wanted it (but then so did I lol)
