Snow cat hoodie and Project Runway

Well the two don't really have anything to do with each other except the fact that I'm going to blog about them both. I made this hoodie the other day and for my first attempt it came out good. Its wearable anyway! The first time I put the zipper in (as i have done many times) I forgot to use a separating one. DUH! Well that problem is solved as the next day I found three bags of zippers at the thrift store for about $12 total. I got a lot of zippers and especially the separating ones so it worked out! In the meantime I made a clutch bag from the same fabric and some pleather vinyl. I like how it came out. It was my first time working with this kind of fabric together.

I am really quite proud of myself as I never used to attempt working with certain things as i thought they'd be to difficult. But of course I was younger and not so wise then :) And I didn't have Project Runway to inspire me! Now (I'm at a level) I feel I can make anything no matter how difficult it looks. I find it harder and harder to buy retail now. Even a crappy cheap shirt from F21 becuase even though it may be $10 Im always saying-"I could so make that!"
Ok so now speaking of PR, I missed the last two episodes and last night I saw the Hersheys show. How fun was that!!! I loved almost all the designs, they were really creative. Christian is my fav but I think he chose an easy out. His dress was basic, but the fact that he used all those reeses cups gave it a cool look. I think bar far Ricky's was the best. His model looked like a hersheys kiss! Rami's was awesome too, but after all the mistakes Ricky's made he should've got more props. Well at least that Elisa is off. I dont like any of her designs. I think Sweet Pea may be next. She is really great, but I don't think her experience is enough to make it through the show. I think it will come down to Jilian, Christian and Rami.
