I don't know if YOU do this, but I like to check the Coraline website from time to time. Sometimes it's for inspiration, sometimes it's to see if anything's new... sometimes it's just to see what new poster I need or to change the wall paper on my computer (I currently love this one).

Well guess what!?

There's new stuff there!

Like...a bookmark that you can make... and how to knit Coraline's blue star sweater (which I now wish I was a knitter because I would LOVE this sweater! It would rival my obnoxiously BRIGHT yellow sweater...)

So I made the only thing I could...

...and I'm not telling you where I found this wonder so that you can have the fun of looking around.



Pssst! Click the post title to link to the Coraline page....

I saw the preview to this movie the last time I went to see Twilight... it looks really good... but then again, it is made by the same folks who brought us The Nightmare Before Xmas which is a favorite of my son and I... we will be watching this movie once it comes out... fer sho'... I am just learning to sew and I had an old pair of Levi's full of holes, so I grabbed a bandana that I bought for a Halloween costume (I was supposed to be Slash but could not find a wig, so I was Slash without the hair... anyway, the bandana has a bunch of skulls all over it) - cut it up and sewed it at the different holes - came out looking pretty good, if I do say so myself... I am trying to make my own clothes and own designs... I am tired of paying money for shoes or t-shirts that a hundred other people have... I want originality... it's been a project that I've been trying to get started since last summer - the pants are a start so we'll see where it takes me...

You should read the book! I love the book, but then again I'm a big Neil Gaiman fan.

Making one's own clothes would be ideal. I wish I was a little more interested in that aspect of things... Generally, though, what's in my head has a hard time translating to real life, clothes wise.
