Paying Tribute......

I woke up this morning contemplating what I should write about today. Yeah, I think about blogging all the time, (morning, noon & night) lol. I kinda had a vision but it totally changed as the day wore on.....

For starters, I got an email today with a link to American Apparel.
I'm not a "die-hard" fan or anything, but I do like some of their stuff.
So I checked out the link.....

Well it seems that American Apparel is selling a "Bag of Scraps" - consisting of a collection of cuttings from some of their favorite "fun" fabrics from around the American Apparel factory.

I can't explain it, but I felt compelled to get myself a bag, (sure I could find scraps of fabric around the house for free - but for some reason, I thought the 11.00Cdn for a bag of American Apparel scraps?? - was a steal)

So, I caved in and made a purchase. I mean it even comes with a Zine that includes a couple of projects .....

Can't wait to get it. I've got some ideas already.....

Cause now I'm thinking - some fabric belts would be cool or I could use the scraps to make pockets on some existing skirts of mine. (did I mention how much I love skirts with pockets? - well check out some of these photos)


Here's some inspiration for some future projects.....

Butterfly Floral & Jumper Dress

Fire Engine Truck Pocket Skirt

Gia Scala Skirt

Winds in the Willows - Earthy Skirt
Next up, before I head on out for the night, I've gotta post a video. It's a Tribute to a wicked female artist who lost her life at such a young age.

Yes, y'all I'm talking about the infamous Aaliyah. RIP girl....you'll never be forgotten

1979 - 2001
