I seem to be focusing on accessories

I’ve figured out that I can trick myself to get sewing quicker if I make an accessory. Plus, it’s a nice way to freshen up an old outfit you never wear anymore, right?

This took me a handful of days to make. I used lightweight materials — but it’s all from my stash. Gotta love that! How nice, to actually have something in my stash that I can use. Ha! I’ve been a little envious of people who have good stuff to dig through, while I always feel like I need to stock up on good basics and never have enough of any of that kind of thing. Sometimes it’s also nice to have an event that’s not period-specific.

In fact, it’s fantasy.

I’m trying to get a costume together for a fairy picnic coming up, and I want to be an elf again. I thought it might be fun to use an old gown I never wear anymore. It also might be a little more trail-friendly so I can wander around without having to worry about long, flowing, sheer sleeves and a train. 😉

But at least I’m keeping busy!

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them — paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again.

My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company.

My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I’m up to with friends and family.
