I am really enjoying some sewing time lately. I am tackling new patterns, learning the lingo and I feel like even if the instructions aren't making sense to me, I can nut it out myself. A year ago I had neither the ability or the confidence. Never in a million years did I think I would enjoy this hobbie so much. I've mentioned before that I am not a patient girl. My motherinlaw gave me a sewing machine for my 30th bday. I told her then that I couldn't sew and I wouldn't use it. She assured me I would do both. I felt like it was kind of wasted on me and now all these years later I am using both the sewing machine and the overlocker she gave me a few Christmases ago.
I recently made this little number for Lulu. It's made from a thrifted Holly Hobbie sheet. Lovely and soft, just the right amount of wear and tear. I used a new spotty fabric to make some binding for the trim and buttonholes!!! Dodge city but they are there nonetheless.
A size too big so perfect for next Summer. Great for collecting spikey things 'up the hill'.
