Soooo, I REALLLLYYYY hope this is a girl (I think it is...gut feeling)...b/c I made this for her last night and its one thing I don't want to give away....
It is a newborn size skirt that I made out of an old ruffley shirt I had cut out of one of my jackets. I forgot and accidently didn't change the thread on my machine and used white thread, big mistake...but I'm not going back and re-doing all of my work...I'll color it in with a marker or something...haha
aww it's cute Jana. Hope its a girl since you want one You could maybe dye the skirt?? instead of coloring in the thread. I don't know much about clothes though. heh.
I wish I knew how to sew and stuff. I would love to make stuff
TY! Hmmm...that might would work Maddie, I have to consult my mother (who is a FABULOUS seamstress).
Braxton keeps picking up the skirt and walking around with it informing whoever will listen that it is for his sister. Haha!!
Honestly its not all that hard to learn, it just takes time. I'm not the greatest, but I'm getting better slowly! I love it! It is relaxing to me.
That is so CUTE!! I can't wait to see it on!
I miss my sewing machine. I used to have a whole room dedicated to my sewing projects when we lived in South Africa. Used to make all of my Halloween costumes, made both of my Prom dresses, made my friend's Medieval-themed wedding dress and all the outfits for the wedding party, and my all-time favourite was making teddy bears.
Now I'm trying to get into knitting because it takes up less space but the wool dries my hands out horribly
I used to sew all the time. Took home ec in Jr. High and got really good. I have all my sewing stuff(sewing machine and sewing box with all the thread and needles and everything) at my parents house. I havent sewn in years. Oh how I miss it.
Roxi, I always wanted to learn to knit, but it looked too complicated, so I just never tried...yeah I know, great attitude about it huh? lol
And Kati, I always wanted to take home ec in Jr High or High School but it never would work out with my other classes I needed or wanted to take more. So, I'm a self-taught girl....and trust me, I'm not all that good. Haha...my first project ever was some simple skirts for a little girl that was going to kids church camp with us, but needed new clothes, and we couldn't afford to buy them for her, neither we as her leaders nor her parents. So, I set out to make them. She loved them and they did last, thankfully, the full week of camp. But then right after camp the dad washed them. Apparently I hadn't sewed one of the pieces of elastic well, because he thought he had a new pillowcase when it came out of the washer. Haha!! I was so embarrassed I didn't sew for a while after that. Funny memory now though.
Jana, I'm also self-taught on the knitting fron. If you're still keen to learn get yourself the book "Stitch 'n *****" by Debbie Stoller
My mom taught me to sew when I was about 9 years old. Been sewing since. I miss it.
Its still at my parents house because when we moved out I didnt take it with us. I didnt have room in my tiny apartment we moved into and right now Im not sure where I would put it either so for now its staying there lol. I made a shirt in school that had buttons and everything was great till the stiching at the bottom started coming out. I mostly just fix things. For a while my mom and I were making those tie blankets and a few od those we did sew.
