Do you have a sewing project that you've carried in your head as your "ultimate dream project?" Something that if you had limitless time, money and talent would be the first thing you'd want to create? What was it inspired by? Where did you get the idea? And what's keeping you from doing it?
I have a sketch in my inspiration notebook for a black artwear apliqued coat that I AM going to make some day. I'm even debating starting it now and seeing if I could get it done in time for the fair. It was inspired by, of all things, a Mary Engelbreit Christmas card. One of her Santas wears a cloak that I just adored. I envisioned turning up the volume on the applique design and making an evening coat out of it.
And I'm thinking that pretty soon, I'm going to have to quit dreaming and start making this dream coat (hmmm??? Is there a musical in this somewhere?) a reality. I never said anything to anyone about my ultimate project, but as if she had read my mind my mother-in-law, my favorite sewing buddy, mailed me a drool-worthy 6 yard piece of black Pendleton wool. Sigh....so, see? I have to make this thing now.
I don't think I can post a photo of the card without violating copyrights? You can see a picture of it HERE. I will find my sketch in my inspiration notebook and update this post with it sometime this evening. Gotta scoot and pick my kid up from school...
Tell me about YOUR dream project. You can comment about it here or post in your own blog and then come back and leave a link so we can come read your thoughts.
