Time to Sew....


Looking at some of my favorite sewing blogs lately has inspired me to get back to my sewing machine & get busy with some new projects.....



I found this wonderful old piece of fabric at a garage sale & knew it would make a pretty pillow ~ just an easy pillow with brush fringe down the sides.....I cut up a matelasse pillow sham for the back. It's my favorite color - deep dark red - I love the design & colors in this old fabric.

I have a new pattern, pieces cut and ready to start a sundress next. The pattern reminds me of a dress mom made for me in high school - one of my favorite summer dresses from ages ago. Gotta get going on it before fall gets here!

That is really beautiful! You have a great talent. I wish I knew how to sew but it seems so difficult. Thanks for sharing a great post.

The pillow is gorgeous! And next you're going to make a sundress. I can't wait to see it, especially if it's reminiscent of an older style! I just found 3 panels of barkcloth yesterday, that I'm pretty excited about. So cheap, I HAD to buy it!

Sewing sounds so lovely! I wish I was sewing today instead of running errands. We're putting on a new roof this weekend and we still have some boxes to unpack. My living room is only 1/2 aqua LOL and I need to finish painting that too. Maybe one day I will plug in my machines and have a sew-a-palooza.

Have fun sewing & have a GREAT weekend!
