Hooray for Birthdays!

Hey everyone, yesterday was my birthday and my boyfriend was so sweet. He got me a gift certificate to Mood Fabrics and another for Jo-Ann’s as well as a Starbucks. I love Starbucks. Their iced salted caramel mocha is my new crack.

So along with these goodies I also got some cash from the mother (thanks Mom!) and a couple awesome emails from Mood. One for 10% off and another today for FREE SHIPPING!!! So I had to order right away, especially with one of the fabrics I was eyeing being a close out.

So I did a lot of thinking and decided to go with this gorgeous plum wool suiting fabric to make a Fall Dahlia dress. Love Colette patterns. There was a beautiful purple plaid as well but I really like the simplicity of this solid.


And since I wanted that free shipping I went ahead and got some Theory Stretch Navy Denim to finally delve into making my own jeans. This has been a project on my list for awhile, so the next step will be to purchase the Ginger Jeans pattern by Closet Files.
From Jo-Ann’s I’ll pick up the notions: denim zipper, Gutterman thread, denim needles, interfacings, etc.

I’ve also had it in my mind to make a pair of leather gloves.


I’ve had Vogue 8311 in my stash for awhile and I plan to locate some white lambskin to make them.

I also have a gazillion other things I want to make in my queue, ;).

And, I’m almost to 50 word press followers! Only 6 to go and then I’ll finally have the motivation to write up my free jogging phone arm band tutorial and a free give-a-way. So stay tuned!
