Fabricville contest

Fabricville like the name said , is a place where they sold fabric.They somethimes organise contest in which you might buy fabric between specific date and make clothing with it costume , dress or what you want.Of course you should keep the bill to be able to proove you really buy the fabric there.The price are interesting but I don't believe I will something .At first I wasn't suppose to do anything but I finally did three so here they are:

 I did this using my mom as a model.I did not use any pattern except what was in my mind.It's an extensible knit with velvet design on it.Easy to do .I case you ask , yes I did cut off my mom's head because of privacy and Fabricville ask to take the picture on a human so I think that's ok. 

A classical type of poncho made of boiled wool.The edge is made with the overlock machine and I did use a metallic thread.At left I paint a red phoenix with  Pebeo touch textil .Very warm and comfortable.

For the summer , a green knit top made from simplicity 5508 .It's hard to see on a small picture but I had 34 crystals around the edge on the top of it.I use a washable glue for fabric and add the crystal one by one to be sure it was well done.Surely I will wear this one very often and it will replace my blue satin top I did from mccall pattern.

The result of the contest will be know only in january.If I only get a mention of honnor I will be more then satisfy but I make no hope to avoid disapointment.Until that moment I found one contest I really which to try my hand at and my dear friend Gwenyver told me about another contest I should participate so I will continue to be very busy.
