New 'jeans' and a new purse... and a hookah

I did it!!! I copied my RTW good fitting Mud jeans that were falling apart to make the good fitting pair to the left you see!!! Thank You Laura from http://laurasewingroom.blogspot.com/ for giving me the link that helped me do this... here is the link for the copying
Copy/Rub off RTW
This was a little time consuming to do but worth it!!! Because they fit! No muslin to make, no alterations... unless theres something you want to change about the rtw...
So really it was no more time consuming than using a pattern you have to alter...

I plan to use this copy method on some other favorite jeans as well as some tops and blouses I love. I may even try copying a favorite jacket! This is an awesome technique..






I also made a new purse/tote this weekend... using the "machine" to embroidery this cute flapper girl.. her dress is cut to be all fringy!! This NL pattern never stops producing great purses for me!



I made the bias binding to match the inside... then added a cell phone pocket and a larger pocket for lipstick and stuff... I used a very stiff thick fleece interfacing because its a larger bag and I didn't want any 'flop' to it at all!





And I brought home a hookah from the restaurant Friday... and some watermelon tobacco... yum... all that desert with no calories!
Which I should have smoked this thing last night instead of eating all those "trail mix brownies" I made.... after the Bald Mans amazing dinner of Baked Breaded Scallops and seasoned corn on the cob! This 7 lbs thats been attached to me the last 3 months isn't going anywhere with me eating like this!!!!

If you find that site PLEASE post it! I would love to be able to copy a couple of my favorite pants and I don't feel like making all kinds of adjustments! I haven't checked yet but I'm hoping that the Bald Man posts his recipes to his blog!

It is time-consuming but worth it, isn't it? And now you can sew that pattern over and over again! Great jeans, you should be proud of them and I'm glad I could help. I also like the purse. Is this remark about "foul language" a joke that I'm not getting???
