Dad recently bought a truck that was intended for me to drive, but it needed some work, sooooo,
he we finally finished working on it and he gave me a set of keys and I got to drive it yesterday! I LOVE it! It's smaller thatn the suburban, which makes me happy, but bigger than a car, which makes Mom happy! :D Anyways, after carrying around the two keys (one for the door, one for the engine) all day, I decided that I should probably make myself a keychain! I've made some for gifts before, but I like this one best, since it is pink! :D The outside fabric is some polka dotted fabric that I love! The inside fabric is a pink damask that I love even more, especially because it was part of a giveaway I won from Pink Chalk Studios! I can't wait to use it! It fits over my arm so that I can slip it on and still be able to carry stuff if I don't have a pocket to put it in. If anyone wants one, I'm open to custom orders! :D

I've had a pair of my old jeans torn apart for awhile waiting to become this skirt. I finally got around to it last night. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be! I poured over a couple of tutorials here: http://blog.christyscreations.com/?p=441 and here: http://www.savvyseams.com/clothing/jeanskirt.php . I was wanting to follow the second one and put triangles in the sides, but Elana and I decided it didn't need them. I left the bottom unhemmed, but I did sew a ling about 3/4" up to prevent too much fraying.
P.S. Sorry the photos are so bad! I took them late last night, and the lighting wasn't very good.
