I made the blue flowered headband to match a skirt I made Hannah.
I have been a busy girl this weekend! Chad let me shop all by myself Saturday and I hit the new Micheals. I also shopped Hobby Lobby and some other stores.
I bought material to make the girls crayon rolls, backseat organizers and my niece's birthday dress.
I can't wait to get started on all those. I had some other things I wanted to work on this weekend...and I got to most of it.
I am so excited to have made 2 skirts this past week. I have 2 skirts that I dearly love but not how they fit when I sit down and stand up...so I searched the web for a tutorial to make my own. I have found that I really like a tutorial over a pattern...even if it means creating my own pattern.
So far this week, I have made two patterns...the one for my skirts and the one for the backseat organizer. I am still working on the organizer pattern trying to decide whether I want to include a pocket for the DVD player or make a separate holder for that.
The last few weeks I've been working on some headbands for the girls. I will try to post photos of those sometime this week, along with the skirts I made.
Today, I made a black skirt, some cute clipboards and felt barrette's (with Mikayla's help). I also threw together some quick headbands for the girls.

We'll I was putting too many side items in my homeschool blog so I thought I would start a new one. Hum...what will this one include:
1. My Sewing Projects: Some of you know that my 2nd Mom passed away August of 2008. This was an intense summer of care taking for her as well as my children. Her cancer came quickly and took her quickly. The sting is still very much here. Anyhow...I inherited her sewing machine and have began to do little projects here and there. Each time I use her sewing machine , I think...she would be so proud. I've always wanted to sew but lacked the confidence to figure it out on my own. So there ya go...
2. My ramblings about life, crafts I insist on making, and just ongoing projects I am tackling because life is too short to wait til tomorrow!
3. Whatever else evolves here...who knows what the Lord will give me to say!
