Yoga (Pilates) Bags!

I made another yoga bag, I actually made two (one for a friend) and they weren't hard to make! I can't wait to go shopping for "yoga bag" fabric! I have just been using fabric I have in the house so I can't wait to go out and shop for the perfect combination of fabrics to make the cutest yoga bag ever! I like making them myself because I can leave room for my resistance band, my ball, and my toe sox! Now all I need to carry is my water! Perfect : )

Goodbye Shade

When I found out that Shade Clothing was closing their web-store and store I had a mini freak out because that's what I was baking on when I had to wear garments. So I tossed and I turned the night I got their email and then I realized, HEY! I am going to make my OWN undershirt!! So the next morning I woke up with a mission, I marched to my sewing machine and made my own modest undershirt...

Here is the Shade top

And here is MY shirt!! (This is the only fabric I had on hand, it's my tester top)

YAY! So now I don't have to throw away any of my clothes when I do have to wear garments!
Oh Happy DAY!

Feel the Burn!

I am in the processes of getting my Pilates certification, I had the summer off and I started classes again on Monday. I bought a ton of LuLuLemon sweats and shorts and pants but I didn't have many tops to go with them! So I decided to make my own tops! Above I am wearing the Pink and Navy striped one I made, then I went and made a bunch more.

Then I made a headband so that I could pull my hair back in a cute way when I needed to, the headbands come in handy in ballet for sure. Functional and cute!

My final pride and joy is the yoga bag I made for my mat! I haven't been able to find one that I liked so I thought I would just make my own! About three years ago I bought this fabric and I haven't been able to do anything with it until the other day! Dun dun dun dunnnn MY YOGA BAG! (Well Pilates Bag) ...

Danny said I looked silly not facing the camera so he had me take another picture, but for some reason my arm is all tweaked ha ha
All ready for Pilates!!
I need to find a new pose!

Grey Knit Dress

This has been SUCH a hot summer (okay not really "summer" more like "couple of weeks"), so I decided to make a couple of breezy stretch knit dresses that I could just wear with a sports bra underneath or a bathing suit and then take off for the day. Here is a picture of the grey dress I made. The rest look exactly the same but in different colors. These dresses have made my summer much more enjoyable ha ha.

Linen Skirt

Okay so I finally took pictures of the stuff I've been making lately, we can start with the green linen skirt I made. I thought it would be nice for summer, I loved the colors and the pattern on the fabric and it was on sale so I HAD to get it!
