Projects in process

Due to the economy, I've been spending a lot of time at home, either because I'm on a forced layoff for a day or two from work, or because of the incredibly small paycheck I receive from said cut hours, I can't afford to go anywhere or do anything.

But it does give me the chance to work on crafty projects I've been thinking about doing, but have been too busy to get around to.
In this photo, I'm working on a bellydance belt using Tempest's corset belt pattern. ( I am hoping to wear it next month at a workshop/halfa Tempest is having here in Indianapolis. In the photo, it looks as if I used two different colors- blue and purple - the fabric however, is all blue. The warp thread in the fabric is purple, so it changes color in the light. It's so cool!
Dance sistas - I need an opinion - how do you like the tassels? They have not been attached yet, just getting a feel for what it looks like. The chains are already attached and am contemplating adding more. What else should I add to it??? Your comments are needed!


  1. I LOVE the fabric! I am a little confused though. What type of costume are you going for tribal fusion or ATS? I see both. Let me know and I will let you know what I think.

    Hugs and Happy Dancing

  2. I'm thinking Tribal Fusion, but want to be able to use it for ATS also
