Grease Monkey

I ain't even mad, bro!
I started this a month or so back, and then my sewing machine literally fell apart stitching it. I almost died since this was going to be my last project before I had to do my harley Quinn costume and also my friend's wedding dress and our bridesmaid dresses. I FLIPPED. Well. Problem averted. I'm going to buy a new machine since it will be only $30 cheaper to get my old one fixed. HAR HAR NO WAY. So I've been using my mum's dreamboat Janome and I am so keen for one. I love Janomes. I could change my name to Janome California if I could. Anyway, enough drivel, ONTO THE MECHANIC COVERALL!

I'm totally drawing up a pattern for this, going to scan it in sometime this week for you to print out and make! YEY YOU GUYS YEY! It will fit up to a tall 2 year old. A very tall skinny 2 year old since my kid is a lean, green, nerdy string bean [well he's on the way anyway!]

I've been scarce. SO SCARCE. I know. All for good reason though and I promise I will update with all the photos I can find. This weekend just gone I was Harley Quinn at Brisbane's Supanova 2011. It's a giant nerdfest basically and I had an ABSOLUTE BLAST!

I'll do a proper rundown this week sometime when I have more time but I'm just going to leave this here for you so you can see that when you put your mind to something, you really can do ANYTHING. I never ever thought I would sew with lycra and enjoy it. I put in invisible zippers, I MADE gloves. I MADE shoes. I made ridic cute wrist ruffles. And even though everyone says I looked wicked awesome I already have plans on how to make my costume even more awesome.

I even made friends with my Harley Quinn idol Elise Archer.

In other news, Thera and I are planning something AWESOME for our blogs since we've been a bit down-in-the-dumps uncrafty lately. It's going to happen the first week of May and we'll be putting posts up about it tomorrow so stay tuned. Holler if you love Batman!
