I was in a sewing swap recently. I received 2 half yards of fabric to make anything I wanted. Knowing that my person had 2 little girls, I decided to make as much as I could for them out of what she sent me.
I ended up making a crayon roll, a marker roll, 2 tote bags and a key chain. Fun stuff!
I have found this cool thing called a Knifty Knitter. I wanted to learn how to knit...but I really need to have someone show me how. So this is a meet in the middle kind of thing. I LOVE it. I've made 2 hats in 2 nights. Not perfect....but pretty close. These are so fun to make. I am going to teach the girls had to make them too! They love them and get excited when they see the colors blending!
The shirt with the yo-yo on it came at a light bulb moment and the rest of it just spilled out as I looked at what fabric I had left to play with!
It's Christmas come early! With a late October birthday, what's better than a great Christmas outfit! This definitely is crying out for some funky tights to go with it!
Still looking for a cute top to use for this skirt..Should I applique...should I add y-yo...hum??? What to do!!!
I am so excited to make one of my sweet niece's her birthday present this year. I've made her two twirly skirts. One I still have to get a shirt to go with it but the other one is all finished and looks oh so cute!
I found a tutorial on how to make a twirly skirt and just had to make it! Don't all girls love to twirls...smile!
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!
