Blue feather day

Photobucket

Today my friend Kendra and I went to Fabric Depot to find her some pretty material for her bridesmaids dress, and me some material for a honeymoon dress. Whenever I go there I get flooded with ideas, and just want to buy everything and make everything, and try not to think of the amazing circus outfit I could create with the pink striped sequins textile. I got away with some plain pink cotton for my dress, buckram, and some pretty trim and this giant blue feather for a project I'll show you this weekend. If you know don't tell! It's turing out quite well, and I'm having a lot of fun with it.
I wished I could have bought all the big bright feathers, they looked so amazing. Feathers as just plain fun.

Oh I have such a weakness for pretty fabric! I too get carried away with too many ideas and projects whenever I go to the fabric store, which is exactly why my fabric stash is more of a hoarding than a stash. :) Those features are too fun! I got some giant red feathers recently for a mini tricorn that a made and oh, they were so much fun to work with! They kinda make everything wonderful.

Beautiful outfit – you make me rethink embroidered '40s things :) I would love to be able to make clothes from patterns – oh, maybe one day!

Firstly: your outfit is so cute! I love that feather too; I used to have a bunch of white feathers just like that, but gave them to a friend (who would actually use them!) when I moved. ;) Can't wait to see what you're cooking up! :D
