All kinds of projects
I pulled down my sewing machine this weekend and actually made not one, but TWO skirts!
But, before I show you those, here are some other projects that I didn’t do, ha!
When I was in Daphne earlier this month, my Mom made this GPS case for me!
My Mom made this, not me. I still need to buy a curtain rod and make the top loop, but I’m still adjusting to the look of it in the kitchen. This picture is TERRIBLE and makes it look gross, but it’s actually really cute. I think.
This afternoon, I cut up some pieces of fabric from my fabric stash and actually gave glue to my toddler. I’m a little crazy, I guess. He did so great with it and followed directions so well. I was very proud! (Ps: I got the idea from Cluck Cluck Sew.)
Now, for the skirts.
I made this one Friday night using this tutorial and guidance from Samantha because I was nervous. So, so easy peasy. I’m not in love with the fabric, but I already had it in my pile and was using it as my guinea pig. I did wear this skirt on Saturday and it was kind of cute.
Here’s the deal on the skirt, though– it’s not very flattering. BUT, I made it and I’m wearing it, so there. Plus, I need more work appropriate outfits since it’s crazy hot in the store.
The elastic goes all the way around, so it poofs out all the way around. Making me look 20 pounds heavier. Nope, nope, and nope.
All the tutorials without a zipper are going to make me look bigger, which means, I need to bite the bullet and learn how to sew a zipper and make pleats. Pleats seem easy, it’s the inserting a zipper thing that scares me.
Oh, and yes, I know it’s hard to tell what the skirts really look like with me not wearing them, but I plan on wearing them this week, so you’ll have to wait til What I Wore Wednesday.
