Rocks vs feathers

April 13, 2010

Which one do you think looks intimidated?

Yes! I bought a new machine and I am SO excited. I will start taking orders for exciting things very soon. In fact just today I promised to make my friend Casey, a redheaded, PHD candidate/Roller Derby Girl living in New Orleans going to parades every other day a pair of Hot Orange stretch pleather/vinyl/PVC hot pants with ruffles on the ass. Her Roller Derby Girl name is Orange Roughy see… So OBVIOUSLY the hot pants are key. And the machine came with a ruffle foot so…

That’s a totally sustainable business idea, yes? Yes! That’s what I thought too!

The pleather is $13.00/yard on Ebay and I am stroking a fat check To.Mo.Row.

But in all seriousness, I’m really excited about it and it’s beautiful and I believe it may actually be able to sew my wheelbarrow to my car.

It’s all in the name, no?

    That was hilarious. Can’t wait to see you model those hot pants before you give them to her!

      I so hadn’t considered that… how AM I gonna sell my “wares” on Etsy without a model for my ruffled ass hot pants?! I may need to reconsider this business model.

    I love that your first order is for orange pleather hot pants. I don’t know, but I think it might be a sign of good things to come.

    I’ve got a Viking and I love it. Mine’s older since my mom passed it down to me, but still it makes my life a good bit easier. I’m totally jealous of the ruffler foot!
