Belt loops and young love

Here I am in the middle of making the belt loops for the bridal gown I'm altering. Fun, right? I actually did secretly enjoy doing the chains from thread, no real sewing required. I did it all while watching old episodes of project runway! :-)
So here is something a little different from what I normally do...But alas, that's what love will do to you. I made this for my boyfriend and was so anxious for him to see it that I didn't do some of the extra things I could have to clean it up and make sure it looks extra nice. I have to admit though, I did LOVE the final product. At first it was going to be a sketch, then I decided to do it as a silhouette then I wouldn't have to explain to him why I couldn't get his face just right (btw the reason is his looks so good I couldn't do it justice *winkwink*.) I put this silhouette up as a custom listing in my etsy shop FYI and will give a good deal to any fellow CAST team member. 

More pictures hopefully before the end of the week...
Until then,
Elisabeth Arona


  1. I love the silhouette! Young love, sigh!

  2. Wow... very talented, indeed! And I love Project Runway. They came to a local mall abiut 2 years ago and invited some mall goers to decorate a mannequin with a shirt and other on-hand objects. My husband got up on stage and participated. I don't think he won, but got to keep his creation, plus we each got hand-held little sewing kits.... it was cool :)

  3. Your silhouette is lovely! I also love to do repetitive tedious handwork while watching TV with my husband. It's nice to hear from you Elisabeth - I haven't seen you on the Castteam Mid-Week Blog Blitz for a while.

  4. yay!! Glad to see a Lizzi blog on here!! :) gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous silhouette!! I have no doubt that hottie will LOVE it ;) you know, I think you should do more silhouettes . . .maybe even do some in card size. You are so talented Lizzi!

  5. You are so talented Lizzi. I'm sure he will love the silhouette!
