These are very easy Pickle Pie toothbrush roll ups . They are in the hoop designs & a great way to use up leftover fabric. For these I dug into my batik. I save every batik scrap as its my favorite fabric !!!!
I'm hosting a cousins weekend this weeknd at our cabin up north .
Thanks Rhonda Buss for featuring my blog on Wednesday Showcase . It was a thrill & honor to be featured !
I Did It !! I made it through the 2014 Ready to Wear Fast without buying new clothes .
While I didn't make as many clothing items as I thought I would , I did make 7 tops , a couture dress, 15 items for granddaughter , 170 baby items for my charity sewing group, 10 snap bags ( gifts) , 12 pumpkin coasters( gifts) 2 Halloween table toppers , 3 crossover bags (gifts) 2 batik totes , 3quilts ( baby charity ) 2 zipper project bags ,2 crocheted afghans for gifts , crocheted 3 afghans for charity .
It really does help to add it all up . You realize that you did sew more than you thought .
I started this blog a year ago to document my sewing & I'm so glad I did.
I'm so glad I took on the RTW fast. It was nice to have a personal challenge .
I know it has been viewed many times & not many people comment - except my # 1 follower -Thx N
While I will continue sewing for myself , I'm not going to be as strict this year with a RTW fast .
I joined the Make A Garment A Month group this year just to shake it up .
I have lots of Craftsy classes lined up, new patters. & of course lots of fabric added to my stash last year .
These small crossover bags are from Pickle Pie . They are so easy to make as they are all done in the hoop on my embroidery machine . Even the monograms came with the pattern . I made a 3 rd one but didn't get a picture of it .
My New Years goal is to figure out the comment section of this blog. I know that people view it but there are very few comments . Sons I wish you lived closer !!!!!!!
I'm seriously considering continuing my RTW Fast for 2015 . I have many sewing goals I never reached & would love to continue learning new skills.
Happy New Year to any & all out there
I made this Sassy Librarian top this summer & I've worn it a ton .
I took the Sassy Librarian class on Craftsy . My first class - it took a little while to get used to the format , but I really enjoyed the class & process. The top still has some fitting issues , but it was just supposed to be my muslin . I have plans for a short sleeved version - soooooon !
Time to stop craft sewing & get back to garment sewing !
