DIY: Getting Sewing Savvy

It’s no secret that I have five very demanding dollies living in my pajama drawer. My newest came home earlier this year and doesn’t have a damn thing to wear, and I can’t really (read: absolutely can not afford to) buy anything for her to begin with.

So I have come with the idea of making her some dresses myself. Now, I tried this before with Kloey. It did not go well and lots of frustration, grumpiness and tears ensued. But she needs clothes.


Ever since Sloane stole her only t-shirt, she’s been running around butt nekkid (and she’s honestly enjoying it). But it’s starting to get to me and I’m in the mood to start selling things which never goes the way I plan.

I’ve been going through the Hot Topic website lately (I love shopping there) and she’s digging the dresses they have. I would like to make her something similar. I figure it fits her style seeing as she is a rocker chick with her own band. ^^ And it also might be semi-simple for me to figure out and eventually improve upon. Who knows, I might have my own Etsy shop one day!

All I need to do is work my way around this pattern thing and get the hang of sewing by hand since my machine likes to give me fits. It probably doesn’t help that I don’t exactly know how to use it in the first place. ^^;

I’ll get there though!

Keeping Myself Busy This Summer

2014 has been a great year for games and the best is yet to come (according to me anyway). This Tuesday welcomes the release of two games I will be adding to my collection.

Tales of Xillia 2

I’ve only recently gotten into the Tales of series as of the past couple of years. My first game being Tales of Graces f which was amazing. I have traded this series for Final Fantasy since the battle system is so much smoother and less irritating. I hate turn based battles… ANYWAY! Shortly after the release of Tales of Xillia last year, the sequel, Tales of Xillia 2, was announced. I vowed to make it mine. And it will be. I have it reserved. ^^

Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

Another game we are waiting to get our hands on is Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. When I say “we” I mean my son and I. We’ve been looking forward to it since it was announced a few months ago. It was originally exclusive to X-Box (which we do not support in this house). Luckily Sony got their hand in the franchise. It looks pretty awesome and I can’t wait to play.

We are also adding PvZ:GW to our stream time in October during our Extra Life fundraiser. My son really wants to help out after hearing why I’m doing it. So cute! ^^ And it’s a two player game, so he doesn’t have to just sit and watch me play. He can join in the fun as well.

So I’m pretty set for the rest of the month, especially with the release of Neptunia Re:Birth 1 next week. Now to wait for September to roll around…

Are you playing PvZ on PS4 as well? Leave your PSN ID and I’ll throw you a friend request. We’d love to play with you!
