Rockabilly baby- Boy stuff!! Tute to follow shortly

You will have to forgive me for my absence.  In addition to being on vacation I’ve been working on helping organize a fundraiser for a project I’ve been part of for the past 2+ years.

Our fundraiser is a burlesque show so as well as recruiting performers and getting ready for the big day, we’ve had some wonderful press and it’s been a whirlwind of interviews and photos etc.  I’ll be glad when it’s over and I’m sure that all our hard work will pay off.  You can see more about this project and the fundraiser on our myspace page. (please leave any comments on the myspace page. thanks! )

I really wanted to do a tutorial related to the burlesque theme since it’s what has been on my mind but as time is slipping away, that will have to wait for another day (valentines day perhaps?)  And now that I only have a couple of days left before the big day on Saturday, a tutorial is just out of the question.  So I’m giving you a bit of  a teaser with the promise of a tutorial very soon.

We have been lucky enough to secure a very talented rockabilly band for the fundraiser.  Burnin’ Ethyl out of Burlington ON will be joining us Saturday night.  I  personally love the rockabilly look, and especially on guys.  And one thing I always fall short on is making cool clothes for my boy.  So in the spirit of rockabilly and cool clothes for boys, I created a bowling shirt just for the little man.


If you look really closely at the stripe, collar and pocket, those are teeny tiny skulls.  😀 I love it and so does he which makes me even happier.

  3. Try for help with making patterns for stretchy stuff. I discovered it the day AFTER I bought a huge big expensive textbook on patternmaking for stretch. I could have saved myself a fortune.
