Sew What...

Hello sewing machine.
I have missed you.
Even though I didn't even realize it.
I'm sorry for the neglect.
I am a stay at home mom now,
which means I can now be your friend again.

I have youtubed how to thread you.
And really you have opened up a whole
new world of crafting for me.
Is all this in the Mr. Budget?

Here is the inspiration...
Julie at Joy's Hope.
I love this girl!
She has been a great bloggy friend for a bit now...
so when she told us "non-sewing peeps"
to get off our seats and sew...
I said...um...ok.
So I joined her scarf along!!

Here are my nice beautiful cut fabric pieces...
ready for my scarf.
I got the fabric from Material Gal on Etsy.
Oh my...I love this fabric!
Look at the dots and birdcages!!

Our first week of homework was
to get to know our sewing machines.
After some choice words and the youtube videos...
I became a friend to my dusty old Singer.

I went a little sewing crazy!
First I made this easy and cheap and cute
bandanna dress!
eeeee...I love it!


And then I tried out a reverse applique...
and then after this little lopsided 'A'...
I made 3 more for Christmas presents!!

Thank you, sewing machine.
You are going to be a great friend for this mama.

If you know of any easy tutorials
for me...hook it up!
I want to learn and make more!!
