T-Shirt Cutting

I'm not sure how I managed to never see this video before...but I found it today and I love it! I haven't tried this yet, but have been wanting to know how to do this style of cutting. This is a great tutorial for Adam Saaks style of T-shirt cutting by itsblitzzz on youTube.

Comments and Posting

Hey everyone...thank you for all the comments you've left here. I just now saw them because I thought I had my email set up to get updates when comments were left...but something got messed up. I was a little bummed thinking no one was looking at my site, but I flipped through and saw that people really are reading it and leaving comments and it made my day! So I'm sorry if you all thought I was ignoring your posts, I'm not and I will get my email fixed so that I know each time one of you lovelies posts something :)

I've added a new widget into this the upper right hand side is a 'Current Project' section. I always like to see what other people are working on so I thought it would be fun to put it up. Hopefully it will also work as a motivation for me so that I don't just start a project and never finish it like I tend to do a lot.

I'm also working on making posts other then the weekly videos! I want to post personal projects, things that inspire creativity, and viewer submissions when I get them. Well that's all for now... :)

Update and coming up!

This week my channel hit over 200 subscribers! Thank you so much to everyone who has subscribed to my show and for your nice comments! :)

My summer job ended last Saturday so I am now totally self-employed...kinda scary to think about...however it means I can work on my etsy business and on Whitney Sews without having to worry about making it to work on time. So hopefully I will be able to have more in depth tutorials and personal projects starting soon. Anyway, that's what's happening in my life. If you are working on some projects you would like to share please let me know...I live seeing what other people are making! :)

This week's episode is turning scraps into accessories...

Fall 09 Trends

Here's a cute little video I found that tells about some upcoming trends.

She is telling different places you can buy these trends, but we all know that we can DIY them too!! Lace and and studs are so easy to add to an existing outfit. Ruffles are also easy...just cute some strips of fabric, zig zag or serge the edges and sew it on pleating as you go. Super easy and cute...I've been meaning to do a ruffle tutorial but haven't found just the right shirt to add them to. Maybe I'll find the right shirt and do that tutorial soon...

*BTW I'm loving Miley Cyrus's clothing line at Wal-Mart!

On a side note...I'm having a sale in my etsy store right now! Use the code Grand09 for 15% off your purchase (does not include shipping costs). The 15% will be refunded back to you via paypal within 24 hours of purchase.
