An update

Well a lot has happened since 2014, which is the last time I updated here. Six years and this blog is still around? I wonder when they eventually disappear. I have found it easiest for me to post pictures on Instagram follow me @isabel.ladyldesigns for actual up to date content.
I now have 2 children and spend a lot less time crafting and creating. Its sad to admit, I do feel like I am missing that part of myself sometimes, but usually I have a full schedule and coffee to fuel me through it. My Etsy shop is still active and I hope to post here more soon.

Jewelry 2014

Halloween 2014

Adventure Time!
Marceline, Jake and Fin!

Jake is her favourite!

I made her costume out of fleece and she is wearing her winter coat under it. It was pretty chilly. 

I made the guitar after looking at many cosplay instructions, its not a prefect prop, but I am very happy with it. Its flat and doesn't have much detail. If I planned on using it again I would have made a better one. I used foam core then paper mache it, two layers. Then I sealed it with gesso and painted it. 

There was a local fund raiser the next day for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Steampunk Cabaret hosted by The Bra Lounge. I finally got around to sewing the bustle I have been wanting to make for a while now. I have had the fabric and lace for months. 

We had a great time, the entertainment was so fun! 

 Excuse my pantry, ha ha.

Mall Market!

Parkland Mall in Red Deer held a Mall Market competition in October, It was a lot of fun and a great learning experience. I didn't win but I made a lot of sales and connections. It was a lot of fun. 


 I was very happy with my display, although I think it was a tiny bit bigger than the size requirements. My math said the size was alright but it could have been off a bit.

Quick Skirt Projects

Hello! I have been working on a lot of things. Sorry for not posting much lately. Many new jewelry designs and even more daydreams of future projects. Updates soon, I promise.

I am planning some steampunk costumes with a friend and it has inspired a whole wardrobe of projects to DIY. I will share the results and tutorial references for you to try yourself. I have a lot of inspirations collected on Pinterest.

I have been daydreaming of making a full costume for quite a few years now, I am finally getting around to it. It helps to have a friend to work on it with, also helps that my friend is a model so photo shoot in the future! I have an extra sewing machine so we can work at the same time, help each other and discuss patterns and alterations. :D

I did a quick sewing project with my friend Creative Creature. She made a tutu type layered skirt they has a red t shirt for a waistband and lining. The top fabric is some spider web printed gauzy fabric.

The one I made is another t shirt skirt with an elastic waistband. So comfy.

I love upcycling and reusing t shirts to make cozy clothes that breathe. Please share your t shirt projects in the comments!
