Bubbles, Mariachis, and Zigzagging

I am so excited- I’ve been feeling this way for a while. Full of inspiration, like it’s bubbling to the surface and just about to overflow. Every time I turn around, I feel like I’m being fish slapped in the face with inspiration (you know what I mean- a salty, scaley fish is making my cheeks slimy. Slimy with inspiration. Wow random.).

I bought 32 spools of thread last night to help get my Etsy shop ready for the holidays. I’ve finished three pairs of Upitees in the last three days- all that’s left is to do a quick photo shoot, and all this momentum just keeps building.

The many colors of future Upitees

I can attribute today’s giddiness to two things:
1) Earlier at work today I got serenaded by a mariachi band (I was tabling for the non-profit I work for at an employee giving fair). I want to somehow incorporate their not-kelly-not-seafoam green look (from collar to cowboy boots!) in my next screens and ride the melt.
2) I branched out and started serging my Upitees this weekend- no more zigzagged edges. Still zigzagged accents, but now the edges where the elastic is folded over are clean. While it doesn’t add much in terms of durability, it looks more professional. They’ll hold up the same and take about the same time to make. But I’m excited. It feels like a new era for the Upitees. With so much more to come!


About La Vie en Orange

I've been sewing since I was 4. Grandma started teaching me with Barbie and pot holder loops. Barbie had a lot of neon tube tops and mini skirts that season. :) Soon I was taking lessons and making pillows, shorts, pajama pants. Meanwhile I was flexing my entrepreneurial muscles selling homemade necklaces and hair bows at school. Fast -forward 20(!) years, and here I am. So excited to be selling eco-friendly undies and sharing my something special with the world! Thanks for stopping by! :)
