Chelsea’s Final

Alright, I’ve finally finished the third sexy apron for Ms. Chelsea. The red is a lovely, very soft and slightly sheer red cotton and the print is from a vintage mumu. It’s got a really nice silky sheen and the colors are just fantastic!

Never turn your back on flan

This morning while listening to Henry Mancini and up to my unders in sewing, I decided to make a snack. Yes, Audrey, I decided to make flan because flan can be a snack if you are me, Heidi Lee Messer, who eats flan for a snack.

But short attention span Heidi just can’t do only one thing at a time. Dishes? Sure. Coffee? Absolutely. Oops, after waiting forever for the flan to boil, it boiled. Over. While I wasn’t watching. Cut to, “What’s that delicious smell? Oh, it’s flan burning all over the top of my stove. Damn.”

Good thing there are kitties who will help you clean up a flantastrophy.

Cleanup Kitty!
Flantastic!

Stumptown Comicfest 2008

Today was my volunteer time at Stumptown Comics 2008. So fun, so many greatly talented artists around. I got to chat with a couple of people whose comics I really admire, including Julia Wertz who draws “Fart Party”. This is probably my favorite Fart Party comic, “Bitch Cookies.”

Bitch Cookies

The comic book fest is going on through tomorrow as well. It’s at the Doubletree Hotel, Lloyd Center. If you love comics, check it out! www.stumptowncomics.com

You see folks, what we have here is an apron for a 3 year old girl who is named Stella. It is made of embroidered vintage towelling and contemporary tattoo and day of the dead fabrics.

I looked into my 3 year old heart to see what it desires most, and this was there among the swingsets and monkey bars.

Yes, I am aware of how incredibly awesome this garter belt is. It is totally reversible, one side is the badass tattoo flash print fabric, the other side is a supersweet day of the dead sugar skull fabric.

It laces up the back, and is quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve ever made. Maybe. My memory is only slightly untrustworthy on these things. Anyway, I love it. My plan is to make many more and make sure the world is a sexier place while I’m in it.
