Pinning On Point & String Cheese Galore

So in my last post I was talking about how my draping class I signed up for would possibly be canceled.  Well it wasn't!  I absolutely adore this class too.  I feel like I am learning a lot and being able to expand my sewing/pattern making knowledge.  It's nice when you find something that you really get and enjoy.  Here is a quick little pic I took whilst draping the front bodice to make a sloper.  I can't wait for class on monday!  :)  Yay!

I also found this great project on a friends tumblr.  You take a t-shirt and slice it up into strips and make a necklace out of it.  I absolutely loved the idea so I went to the goodwill, as I don't have many shirts I like ripping up, found a cute orange/coral color shirt and gave it a try.  Here is what the example looked like:

And mine turned out like this (I kind of think they look like strings of cheddar cheese):
