Things making me happy at the moment are the charlie brown christmas soundtrack, having white hair, and wearing this raccoon dress I made a little bit ago. I'm not the best at sewing, and I still need a lot more practise for my creations to actually turn out how I imagine them in my head- but for the most part I'm happy with this fun little dress....although I do kind of feel like I'm wearing a kids' apron, which wasn't what I had envisioned. ah well. All the photos I tried to take of the back were out of focus. it was one of those days. But for anyone who's wondering, the suspenders cross at the back and connect to the skirt. predictable but classic.

  3. You made this? wow! Even if it didn't turn out how you though it still looks amazing! so cute!
    I'm dying to try sewing a dress. So far I've only sewn little pouches and a couple of laptop bags.

  4. So cute! I wish I knew how to sew. I don't think I have the patience for it...lol. Learning how is definitely one of my many life goals. I love animal-themed stuff, too. I always look for giraffe things because they're one of my favorite animals, but there's usually not much around. :\

  7. Even if it wasn't your best sewing job, perhaps, it is impressive that you did it yourself! And I think it's very original, actually. :) You are so lovely! The white hair is something I didn't expect from you but you look fantastic.

  13. I love this dress! Great job. I like that it's got an animal face on it, but still manages to be subtle.

  15. you are so brilliant and adorable! this is handy and so creative. i adore the fact that you used a hoodie as the top part and connected a skirt - the paws as pockets too! your hair and ear cuff complete everything. fantastic job! i discovered you on chictopia today and thought I'd say hi :)

    It would make me happy if you visited too!

  19. a bit random, but my 3 year old just saw the header picture on your blog and said, "That is a talking cat.". . . I thought he knew his animals (and people) better. . .ahhh.
