What’s on my table?

I’ve been on a sewing kick lately… I must say that I am not the best at it, and if you are friends with me on Facebook you see me ALL the time asking for help or wondering why my sewing machine is doing this or that. I to be completely 100% honest don’t have a clue what I am doing, but that’s why we learn. I have been on Pinterest many many late nights, trying to find wonderful bloggers who sew, and were kind enough to make tutorials so that sewing challenged people like myself may have a cute new skirt, or shirt. Well the other night, I found the cutest vest/shirt thing? I am not sure what to call it really, but I can’t WAIT to have it finished! Over at Rhonda’s Creative Life she created a tutorial for this shirt. I loved the way hers turned out, so I went and got some really cute fabric and got to work. I’ve only got one side finished, but I am really happy with it!

Do you sew? If so what tips do you have for me? I need all the help I can get!

Skirt time!

For years now, I have wanted to make clothes, I’ve bought TONS and tons and tons of fabric but never was brave enough to actually cut the fabric and start working on something. Well I finally got brave the other night, and cut into my fabric. Thanks to the amazing tutorial over at Dana made it, I was finally brave enough to try and make a skirt.

As her directions stated I needed to make a pattern. So I pulled out some foam board that I got from the dollar store and did just that. The foam actually worked out perfectly its strong enough not to rip easily like paper, but it not to heavy.

The length that I wanted to make the skirt, caused me to have to have two pieces of foam, but at a $1 a piece I wasn’t complaining to badly. She has AMAZING instructions on how to get the measurements for your waist. Which without her help I would have messed up horribly. I finished this skirt up (other then the hem on the bottom) a couple of days ago, and I finally got to wear it today!

It was a little bit chilly outside today, and I wasn’t sure how cold it was going to get so I paired my skirt with boots, and leggings. 🙂
