My First Sewing Project.....

Since 7th grade Home-Ec Class.

It was quite scary, but I managed to make a few cute things given I had very few of the sewing essentials handy.

For example I had NO PINS so I used random needles to hold the fabric together.


Also, NO rotary cutter.

Just an OLD pair of horrific scissors that barely cut toilet paper.

REAL Ghetto.

And this is the result!

A fun crooked CRINKLE taggie toy MICHIGAN STYLE for Gracie.

She wasn't real impressed, but I know I can find another GIRL in this family to pass it down to :)

I also made a crinkle OWL for Gracie.

Pink and Brown, just like her bedroom :)

Thanks to Julie at Joyshope I headed to JoAnns, with her email (pics included! How awesome is she?)and coupons in hand, and bought a few of what she thought were the must haves.
I was then able to make my first article of clothing, a DRESS for Sophie!

Thank you Julie!

It turned out really cute and Sophie was very impressed.

She wanted to wear it all day!

This FUN dress is actually made out of two DISH TOWELS!

Yes, dish towels.

I followed an easy tutorial after seeing it on Angie's FUN blog!

Then made some bows to match and even added a few to my SHOP.

Of course I had to make all of my girls Halloween leg warmers.
Because I am so 80's.

Gracie was not real impressed.

She wanted to play with the BALL instead.

She tried to rip them off a few times.

So NOT 80's of her.

Now I have to get the time to finish Mia and Gracie's dresses.

A white ghost for Gracie and Purple Cat for Mia.


Have a Spooktacular Weekend Everyone!
