Somebody Stop Me!March 7, 2012
I have a new major obsession. Sewing. Why didn’t I realize how cool it was a LONG time ago? Oh I know. Because I didn’t have a sewing machine! Two Christmases ago I saved all my money and bought a very basic sewing maching. Matt was very much against it because he said I wouldn’t use it and it would just collect dust. To be honest, I actually kind of thought that it might…but then I discovered Pinterest and can’t stop creating now!
So here are just a few things I’ve made in the last little while, and I’ve got plenty more on the horizon! It’s just the coolest thing to be able to take a yard or two of simple fabric and create something useful!
This is probably my favorite so far. Such a fun ruffled skirt! I used the tutorial here for the basic pattern, then modified it a bit.
And here is a skirt I made a few months ago. I love it because it’s so unique! The tutorial is HERE.
Curtains for my family room:
Bibs for my little niece Maura (used THIS tutorial):
A much-needed cover for my sewing machine (TUTORIAL):
A small little cinch beach bag for carrying sunblock and bug spray (TUTORIAL):
Ruffled-bottom pajama pants for my mom with a matching pillow case (sorry bad pic taken with my phone). I loosely followed THIS tutorial:
And a ruffled tote bag for carrying my books to church (can you tell I’m obsessed with ruffles)? (TUTORIAL)
If anyone has any other ideas for something I should make (or something YOU’VE made), let me know! I’m always up for new ideas!
