Boot Caddy from Boot Bag (or other fabric)

I splurged!  I found these amazing boots on the Fluvog website, and invested in a timeless, long lasting staple to my footwear wardrobe!  They arrived with this lovely boot bag, stamped with John Fluvog's spiritual message.  I want them to last forever, and thought that a boot caddy would help them stand up straight in the closet, and keep the leather in great shape (no fold where it flops sideways).
 I flipped the bag inside out and cut out mini "legs"...
 Sewing the inseams and rounding the "foot", I then clipped the curves.
 Like this...
 Turn it right side out, I filled the bottom quarter with dust free kitty litter (this makes it heavy enough to slide to the bottom, and deodorizes the inside!).  The rest of the legs are stuffed with fluffy poly batting.  The top has a natural drawstring, but if you are using fabric, you can gather the top and fasten off.
 Here they are, inserted in the fabulous boots!  I LOVE the boots, and the caddy will keep them in great shape!

More Tubular Delights!

My next batch of knit fabric tubes and charms... They all stretch over the head and lie comfortably over sweaters or directly on your skin (they are sweater and tee shirt fabrics!)
This one is taupe brown with silver and black beads and an angel pendant.
This one is a lively peacock blue, beautiful stretch sweater fabric, with crystal and silver pendant and beads.
My favourite, taupe brown, and black, 3 different fabrics, with huge hammered metal pendant, and silver and black beads.
Very striking, black,white, grey and navy fabrics, silver and black beads and two part silver pendant.
Brown and black print fabric, antique bronze pendant and beads, with silver and black beads. The big pendant is a locket with a key inside (you could put a photo there too).

Charming Tube Necklaces

Here are some new "Anthropology-style" necklaces. They are one of a kind, with charms and beads and cool fabrics. Above is the only single strand necklace with shiny thick fabric and LOADS of beads.

Black tubes with silver beads and charms
Brown print tubes, gold charms and amber rings, assorted beads
Black and blue tubes, silver charms and beads and silver chain.
Brown knit tubes, silver rings and brown and black beads including pandora style beads with crystals.
Black, grey print tubes with silver and black rings, charms and beads.
Black and blue tubes, with blue, green crystal beads and a large blue "alien" charm at the bottom, quite shiny.
Black, grey and purple tubes, with silver rings and beads and charms, and purple beads
Red textured tubes with lots of blue rings and red, amber beads and large silver medallion.
Black and grey tubes, big chunky pewter beads, and silver charms and chain.
They are all stretchy to put them on except number one which has a lobster claw closure. They feel comfy and I get lots of compliments and "where did you get that" when I wear mine, so was inspired to make more . Hope you like...

New Blue Dress

On my dress form is a lovely new blue dress for darling daughter! It is a halter style in royal blue, with sheer ruched overlay at the waist, and sheer diagonal overlay skirts on the slim skirt. The length will be a few inches above the knee, about where the second tier hits the right thigh.
No special occasion as yet to wear it, but she loves pretty dresses and I promised her one months ago!

Street Fighter official photos

Here are photos from the Halloween Parties that sweet daughter and her (the Count) husband attended. The spikes on the bracelet are fabric and soft but look pretty wicked!

At the club she ran into a fellow Street Fighter and posed for photos... cool

This one is at the final fitting, showing the footwear. Another successful Halloween!

More Chunli Photos

The sneaker boots are made by adding fabric spats that are laced up with the canvas shoes.
The dress has a white sash, and will have further gold stripes added, after we do the fitting and get the length exactly where we want it. There are high slits at the side seam and back seam. A zipper will finish the back neckline.
The wrist bands are leather with fabric spikes, painted silver. Aspen is the quality control expert. She approves.
