Sewing Like a Crazy Woman…
well, at least for me! I know for some people this would not be an impressive amount of sewing in two weeks time! I also have some crayon rolls sewn up, but they didn’t make it to the picture taking party. Besides not being too exciting, I need to rip out some topstitching and re-do it. I wish my seam ripper and I didn’t hang out quite so much.
First off, an apron for my upcoming craft show. This isn’t to sell….this is for me to wear to hold change, pens, etc. I’m not completely thrilled with how it turned out (good thing you can’t see it too close), but it will be fun to have. I used this tutorial with my own little tweaks.
I also finished up a whole bunch of little girl’s aprons. Seven to be exact. I hope to make some boyish ones also. My plan is to purchase some cookie cutters and package one along with an apron and a recipe. A cute Christmas gift, I think. My boys love wearing my aprons when they wash dishes…..gotta love that! Four of the aprons are matchy, matchy….one bigger and one little. I thought that way, if someone wanted to do sister’s, it would work nicely.
Next up are several purses. I wasn’t really planning on making any for the show, but after sewing up the girl’s one, I was feeling inspired. This was my first time making clutches. They aren’t perfect, but I really love them. I won’t be sad at all if they don’t sell, because I will use them myself. I love the colors and the shapes. I also really love the fabric combination on the patchy purse. I love orange and green together.
