I made some bunny finger puppets for my nieces and nephews,
for their Easter baskets tomorrow. (Don't even worry, the Easter bunny hooks me up for helping out.)

Not going to lie, I've had way too much fun playing with these things.

I got the idea from this blog.
(Though you really shouldn't click over because mine aren't nearly as cute as hers are.)

Happy Easter everyone!

This past week I traveled to New York City with the Fashion Design program at my school.

We toured FIT and Parsons.

Saw Phantom of the Opera. (Soo good.)

Visited a few different designers. This guy was amazing, but totally knew it. ha, don't they all?

This lady owned her own hat shop in Soho. The shop was the cutest thing ever, filled to the brim with all different sorts of books and custom hats. I totally loved her. She was so eccentric and positive about life.

Shopping at Mood! I ended up finding some incredible lace fabric which I'm pumped about.
Oh and speaking of Project Runway, I didn't get a picture of this but I totally ran into Gretchen (from season 8) on the street! She was walking her dog and the minute I looked at her, I said "Hey your.." and she smiled and started booking it. ha, she obviously loves being recognized.

By the end of it I was tired and ready to come home, but now I wish I was back! Isn't that always how it is? Oh well, hopefully in two years time I will be.

Remember when I designed this?

Photobucket

Well, I made it!

Photobucket

A lovely reader, Sarah asked me if I'd be interested in making it for her and of course I said yes.
I based the dress off of this pattern but drafted ruched sleeves, raised the scooped neckline and changed the design of the tie.
The fabric I found isn't exactly the color I was hoping for but I'm trying to not let my perfectionist tendencies get the better of me. :)

I hope you like it Sarah!

Last Friday was MORP at my school.
For those that don't live in Utah.. or Provo for that matter, MORP is a girls choice dance similar to Sadie Hawkins. (The name is PROM spelled backwards. Despite it sounding like some kind of time machine or something, haha that's what it always makes me think of.)

Photobucket

The theme was "Ugly Prom", which explains the poofy, red dress and the running shoes.

Photobucket

I always hate girls choice dances because I'm so bad at "putting myself out there" like that. But I'm so glad I got the nerve to ask Thomas. He was such a fun date and a blast to spend time with.
After we took these pictures (thanks to Rachel and her dad!), we went to Carraba's for dinner and then to the dance. It was fun to finally go to a dance as a senior. I felt so old looking around and seeing no grades older than me.

Photobucket

After the dance, we went to my friend's clubhouse and played games and had shakes. It was such a fun night and I am so glad I went.
I never thought I'd say this but I'm really going to miss high school. All the kids at my school are seriously so freaking awesome. It's going to be weird not seeing the majority of them again.

Have an amazing week everyone!
