Yes, once upon a time I made a pillowcase
. And then another
. And then one more
. Without a pattern, just cutting rectangles, measuring here and there, tossing in a few pins to keep it together, then running it through the only setting I know how to use on my mom's sewing machine.
It wasn't rocket science. I get it.
But today I unveil an actual accomplishment! I bought a sewing kit from Walmart of all places to make my very own apron
, and was able to do it all by myself! Yay for me! Although I still don't technically know what a "flounce" is and didn't find out this video
existed until two seconds ago (long after completing my project), I think I did a pretty decent job!
|Good ol' Walmart. Home to Creative Cuts by Springs Creative. So easy and so fun!|

NOTE: There's a reason I don't have a million-dollar modeling contract, folks. As if.
|Complete with functional pocket. See??|
I have to admit... I'm getting addicted to this sewing stuff. How amazing is it to see a bunch of random shapes of fabric magically turn into a functional item like this apron? I can't wait to try something else next. Any suggestions? One day I'll get brave enough to buy a real pattern and cut out my fabric like the pros do it, but for now, I'm up for whatever the next challenge is that comes after a pillowcase and ready-made apron.
So. Much. Fun!
That is adorable! After the baby comes (b/c there's WAY too much to do before she gets here) that's one of the things I want to dive into...SEWING! You can do so many amazing things if you have a clue about how to work a sewing machine. GREAT work! :)ReplyDelete
Great job! It looks cute!ReplyDelete
Great! Now make some pillowcase dresses for LO. I have a pattern I can send you. They are so fun and look so cute. I've even made them in all white and taken them to be monogramed which really made them look good!ReplyDelete
I was thinking dresses, too, Joelle. You can find some really, cute, simple patterns for sundresses. Summer is a perfect time to try sewing things for LO. I have a friend who has made several of the pillowcase dresses for her niece and they are adorable. I can't wait to see what you do next!ReplyDelete
I have no idea where you find the time to do this. The projects are amazing.. I'm glad your kids are enjoying it too.ReplyDelete
