Spring is Coming...

So I made some springy stuff.

I don't work with pleats that often, so the front ones are pretty uneven, but I don't think it's noticeable. Other than that, I think this skirt is pretty fantastic.
My hair's a little messy right now, so I had to photographically decapitate myself.

I love love LOVE this dress! And it takes about 30 seconds to make, I think I'm going to make about 100. Here's the embroidery:
I got the design from a book I checked in at the library. I know I'm a dork.

Some Birthday Jewelry

A necklace for Jewel, some earrings for Jessica and the blue earrings are for me (we'll call them a post-birthday present to myself)

Slippers and a skirt

I made Kristen some slippers (those big holes are where I join, I don't know why they always show!)And a skirt for me!

My own pattern.

I guess one good thing about being broke is that I'm using a lot of fabric/yarn/patterns that have been lying around since I can't buy any new stuff!
