What I have been Sewing Lately
I really enjoy sewing randomly, but sometimes it is a pain. Mainly because I constantly have to take down Â or set up sewing machine, serger, ironing board, iron,etc. First world problems I know; Grant is so patient with how messy it gets when I sew because threads and needles end up everywhere. I have been trying to organize our clothing and one of the things we did is take a bunch of our t shirts that we never wear and put them into a bin where I plan to practice certain sewing to get the hang of it. So, if I mess up, I am not wasting purchased fabric which is expensive.
I followed THIS video tutorial with free pattern & Instructions HERE to make this shirt; I figured just because we don’t wear them doesn’t mean future kids can’t. So this is a size 4 version of the shirt that used to be Grants.
Here is another shirt, this was an XL that neither of us wore, so I made it into a small shirt, and it is just so cute.
I also found some cute fabric at JoAnn’s and decided to draft a Maxi Skirt for myself.
Lining up the stripes down the sides took a while, and the band on top is normally folded, but didn’t want to be too risky in the pictures.
It is more of a tapered, mermaid style maxi which makes walking easier. I recently bought a new pattern, and some fabric for a new type of item I might give at baby showers, but we will see if I can pull it off first. Scary!
