    Sarah Conley commented on the project Pizza Earrings

    Thanks, Mary! Yes, the hot glue on your hands is very painful but we occasionally must suffer for our art and it is worth it. Thanks for the comment!

    Sarah Conley commented on the project Hot Pink Katjusha Dress

    Beautiful! I have used bed sheets as material, too. Hey, why not?! The polka dot sash is a fun accent and the draping of the skirt is very pretty. Good job.

    These are some fun earrings I created today using felt, wire, ear wires and my favorite thing: hot glue.
    The idea for this project came because today I volunteered at my kids’ school at their mont…

    Sarah Conley commented on the project Maternity Tank and Pencil Skirt

    Hi there! How cool that you decided to make your own maternity outfit. I wish I’d known how to use a sewing machine when I was pregnant so I could bring my own style to that journey. The ruching is…

    Sarah Conley commented on the project Purple Pizzaz Dress

    Hi, thank you! I’ve been an artist since I was a child and it’s only in the last 2 years that I decided that I might be able to use a sewing machine. Since then, I’ve done more sewing than painting!

    Sarah Conley commented on the project Purple Pizzaz Dress

    Hi Mary, thanks! I had some trouble uploading the photos and I’m so glad that the computer and I have an understanding now. (Sometimes my sewing machine and I have misunderstandings, too!)

    This dress has a back story, as many do. I started sewing it more than a year ago. It was self-drafted and I became frustrated with the back. So I put it in my “Finish Someday” box. A year later I …

    Ooooh, I love Spring. I definitely have Spring Fever. How do you know it’s Spring? It gets warm and you dig out your kid’s duck umbrella for shade. Like a lot of my projects, this dress came about …

    This year’s Halloween costume. I wondered how I’d make a costume that looked like a bird. Challenge in hand (wing), the obsession began. After several weeks of planning and sewing, lots of hot glui…

    Thank you both so much! It was the prototype so it certainly isn’t perfect. You can’t sit in it, among other things. But hey, it was a fun challenge to create…

    Sarah Conley commented on the project Shirred frock

    This caught my eye because it involves two of my favorites: bright color, and polka dots. I hoped it was a grown-up dress. I’m 38 and holding and I would definitely wear it! The shirring is fun and…
