For those of you that know me, you know I love to sew. Mainly, I sew crazy nerd bags, but I also love to sew crazy nerd clothes as well.
The first project on my roster is a Time Bandits dress. A dress with a hood! I'm currently designing it now, so what it looks like will have to be a surprise!
I found this amazing fabric that reminded me of the map from the movie. To make it really 'read' as a Time Bandits dress I’ll need to add the clock trim to the hem of the dress and maybe around the edge of the hood. I’ll also need to add the colorful symbols throughout.
It’ll be difficult, but I’m hoping the end result will be worth it!
The second project I’m going to work on is adding two more dragon bags to my collection.
I found this beautiful gold/brown reptile patterned vinyl that will make a perfect Daenerys Targaryen dragon companion.
The white reptile patterned vinyl was just too pretty to pass up as well. I originally made a white dragon bag out of plain white vinyl, which turned out great, but when I saw this I knew I had to upgrade!
And finally, the third project I’m working on is a couple of Shadowhunter shirts for me and my fellow nerd girl F.M. Sherrill! We’re huge fans of the book and show and want to show our love by making clothes with the Shadowhunter runes. I designed this fabric on Spoonflower.com, and it should be coming in the mail next week!
I promise as soon as these projects are done I will post them on my blog and on my blog with F.M. Sherrill at www.2nerdgirls.com.
