I'm slow! (but happily inspired by great music)

It's taken me all day to make Air Force pants & cap for this chick. Still need to sew on some pockets, then it's the jacket.... not looking forward to that I can tell you!! :O) This video was from Dessa Rae's Blog, not only does she make fantastic babies, she has excellent musical taste! It's called 'Love Story meets Viva La Vida', which is very apt for my current project, since I met my husband whilst he was stationed in England! Such uplifting music, I'm loving it! I love this so much, I had to post it on ADO too!!

  3. Thanks Dessa Rae and Connie - ok, so I cheated and cut up one of my husbands uniforms - the design is the new Airman Battle Uniform - which are similar to the desert fatigue, everyone I know hates it. All military personnel are being issued with it now. It's surposed to suit all conditions and camo!! (mmm, wonder if I'll get arrested for chopping up a pair of pants!!)
    Connie - she is going to carry a flag and something else when I think of it, and I will put her in my Etsy shop! (kind of a 4th July thing?) :O)
