My sewing machine is my new BFF! Check out all these things I've created with some very helpful tutorials!
First, I used several crayon roll tutorials like the one over at The Pleated Poppy to create a makeup brush roll. I actually use this everyday!
After several of my friends and I received Kindle Fires for Christmas, I decided to use what I learned from several tutorials to create puffy pouches.
Here are some of the tutorials I pieced together to create these:
Six Crafty Cats and this House on Hill Road pattern
Here is my attempt to place a "tag" on my creations...
Then I put my big girl panties on and attempted a skirt.
The tutorial over at Made really "made" this happen! I am so glad I have this cutie to wear my creations ;)
And yes, you can feel sorry for my lack of grass in my backyard. It was a VERY DRY and HOT summer here in the Austin Area!
These two skirts were also possible because of the Made tutorial, but I morphed another tutorial from The Mother Huddle and used the bottom of an old tank top for the waistband on the Love the Earth skirt.
The Paris Skirt is different because I used ribbon as bias tape.
So there you have it! I have been too busy sewing to blog! If I can do this, anyone can!
