why does photobucket not like my HP?
seriously, this computer stuff makes my head want to explode! it just doesn't make sense to me. my laptop sends pictures over just fine. but my pictures are in my HP!!!!!
okay, moving on.
in sewing news
(pictures i had previously uploaded but not yet blogged)
there is a great tutorial on how to turn tshirts into gaucho pants! woohoo! how cool is that?!
so... i made a trial pair for E and then another... we decided there wasn't enough 'froof' in the leg. trip to the thrift store on 1/2 off clothing day (every monday).... paid 60 cents for this cute cute maternity shirt:
a few cuts and seams later:
gaucho's with froof:
i've been doing a bit of research on gapkids, childrens place, limited too, and gymboree
to see the newest trends and what's no longer in fashion. gotta keep my kiddos cool, ya know. but, because i'm not into spending loads of cash on clothes that will be "out" next year (even though they still fit), i'm researching. i've been going through her closet and will be doing some 'updating'. it's very basic this year. it seems like adding some bohemian style embroidery, ribbon and stud accessorizing to skirt and pants will be the biggest thing i do. and the skirts that are popular - the little tiered skirts - SOOOOO easy to make! other updates will be taking sleeves off some shirts and adding different cap sleeves or poofy sleeves. oh, and legwarmers. they seem to be all over the place!
i'll post some pics of these adventures as i go.... assuming i figure out why the HP and photobucket are at odds.
