Day 58: Take Me Out of the Ball Game Top
Day 56: Yacht Party Dress

Aloha from South Carolina! :)


I have to say, I love Hawaiian printed stuff.  Shirts, Dresses, Bags, whatever…I dig it.  It makes me feel like I’m miles away, sipping on an exotic beverage with an umbrella in it.  :)

Sadly, this top is just too big, and not something I would ever wear, except maybe as a swimsuit coverup.  I decided to make it a bit more practical.


See where I’m going here?

I finished all of my raw edges, starting with the bottom.

Stitchin' that new hem!

Then, I finished the sides!

Pin & Sew!

I pressed my new hems, and was all done!

Love those Kimono Sleeves!
Check out that wingspan!


Now for the exciting part, dear reader!  I have a fun Friday giveaway!  :)

If you live in Columbia, SC you probably know about  Nana by Sally handmade handbags.  Each one is made by the delightful Sally Peek in her home studio.  No two Nana bags are the same.

I’m happy to say I own a couple of Nana Bags, and they are my favorites!  :)  They’re ridiculously well-made and sturdy, and (best part) they’re completely unique!  :)

I’m so happy to be able to offer you a Nana Giveaway, courtesy of Sally.

The giveaway is for a “Sylvia” Clutch (pictured below). This is a suuuuper-cute and very popular style.  They are sold for $80.
