Green halter neck jumpsuit

Here’s a quick peek at the first prototype. The fabric looks translucent but it isn’t. Just an effect of the backlight. Ran out of green thread so you may see some white.   This calls for some thread shopping! Where do you get your thread?

Miniature basketball outfit

It’s May, weeks AFTER March madness but the effects can still be felt. The place I work at has a basketball bracket every year and we have homemade prizes for the winner. Last year, I made a sash which my dog won. Smart dog right?! (Shhh… the husband filled out a bracket for the dog.)…
