Chapel Veils

I have “friended” various pages on Facebook that offer chapel veils. Most of these sell for 30$/ea prior to shipping. I decided to hop over to JoAnn’s for lace anf notions. I purchased 3 colors: plum, red, blue with silver, with matching thread and ribbon. I already own black and white. I may make a golden hued in the future.

This is under 30$, including thread and machine needles.

The sewing machine is broken, it’ll be picked up for repairs on Friday and will return in 2-3 weeks. Boo. I haven’t even used it for a while month yet. Do I foresee a pattern? Pun NOT intended, but I’ll take it. I’ll be hand-sewing the trim.

Pondering on whether to make the veils into infinity scarves, as I purchased 15″.

Halloween Ideas

Interested in doing Halloween, yet not as interested in being a skimpy nurse, witch or Brittany-esque school girl?

Take Back Halloween has an interesting suggestion – for women to attire themselves in powerful women throughout the ages: Sumeria, Ancient Greece, to Jane Austen, and women-warriors. If you don’t consider it for Hallowe’en, then keep it in mind for when kids have projects to complete on innovative and historical women.
