Two posts in one day. If you think that craziness is about to ensue you would be right. I am so excited to announce that I will be participating in Season 3 of Top Stitchers over at it’s new home at Sewing Stadium. I am soooooooo excited. Becca comes up with the BEST prompts for this contest and it really pushes me to come up with not just clothing, but a whole story to go along with it. Our prompt is Post-Apocalyptic Style. Here is the prompt we were given…
“Bridges collapse, communication shuts down, and those fabric stores you love so much are over-run with zombies. Most survivors are hunkered down wearing whatever rags were on their backs when The End arrived, or ill-fitting garments they looted from a stranger’s closet. But not your kid. Your daughter has a master upcyclist for a mother, and you’re going to turn the trash around you into the most durable, functional, and stylish duds for your post-apocalyptic world.”

Not only do I love the prompts of Top Stitchers, but there is so much talent involved. Today I want to introduce you to my competitor Michelle White from Falafel and The Bee. I am a huge fan of Michelle’s so it is such an honor to compete against her.
Here is a little more about Michelle.
1. When did you start sewing? I did take Home Ec in High School, but I really didn’t sew until my first child (who is now 15) was born.
5. What is your favorite post apocalyptic movie? and why? Well, I tend to like the “lighter” ones like the movie 2012 where there is lots of action and less of the thriller/zombie/cannibal aspect. The Planet of the Apes films (newer ones) are really well done, too. And then there isI am Legend which is great (except for the zombies- I am a total wimp) and I loved The Road, but once was enough to haunt me for a lifetime (again,cannibals are not my cup of tea- ha!). Another favorite is Tank Girl.
Make sure to keep an eye out for what Michelle, I and all the other Top Stitchers are up to this season.
