Mojo? Is that you?!

I finally feel like maybe I'm getting back my mojo! Saturday was a LNKhandmade Team crafting meeting. We got together to work on our our banners for group sales/gatherings. It was so great to talk with other creative people, bounce ideas off each other and just craft.

Later on Saturday, I was feeling like dump. Scratchy throat, just general malaise. Sunday bounced back a little, and Monday, well, Monday was laryngitis. Still don't really have a voice. Just that breathy/husky sounding voice. John thinks it's kinda sexy. LOL.

Monday was also a fun, creative day for me. I made a cute tunic for Leith from a thrift store t-shirt and pair of 3T leggings! Johnny Depp was so *young* when the picture was taken, very 21 Jump Street. (Does that show my age? lol)

Self-drafted pattern. Using the leggings felt like I was cheating! I even used part of the waistband for the neckline (just removed the elastic). Next time I'll be more careful about cutting pieces so I won't have to frog an entire waist!


This picture gives you an idea of the length:


I was looking through her drawer for leggings to wear with the tunic, and found the pink w/ hearts! Hadn't put them away yet (it's just getting too cold for capri length), and they are *perfect* with this top!

One more picture, because this one shows you just how pretty (and slightly petulant) a just-awakened Leith can be:


I'm still not sure about the neckline. I kind of like the larger-but-not-quite-boatneck-ness of it, but not positive. Actually, it happened like that because the pink fabric is too long -- didn't take off quite enough. Still, it's not awful, that's for sure.

So? What do you think?

Haha! That is so cute! I think Elsa has those pants, but in blue. I can't wait to crochet a skirt for her!

That's great! I'm just wondering how someone could have parted with that t-shirt in the first place!

I think it's adorable! And so comfy looking. Can I have one? :)
