Show Cancelled

Dear Friends,

Unfortuately Truffle Pigs will not be participating in the Baltimore Big Flea as we had previously planned. One of us will be out of the country on those dates. We hope you will visit the show anyway at the Timonium Fairgrounds, October 23-24.
You can see us again as always at the DC Big Flea: January 8-9, 2011 and July 23-24, 2011.

Affordable Fun Fashion

Tough economic times call for creative solutions. Though not strictly a sewing project this was a fun and affordable way to send my girl off to homecoming with a unique dress. Last Spring we purchased a cute pink  ballet style frock in the clearance section of  Forever 21 for $12. We knew we wanted to do something with embellishment to jazz it up a bit. We thought about trims, zipper rosettes and sculptural details. Finally we hit upon an idea-why not a painting! We took as our inspiration the Spring 2008 Prada Collection and went with an ethereal quality as far as theme and painting style.

The theme for the dance was neon/glow-in-the-dark so I lightly added glow-in-the-dark paint to some strategic areas. I haven't been able to figure out how to get a picture of this though!
