This first thing I made were bandanas for my dogs. You can tell by the photo how enthusiastic they are about them.
I followed that up by a purse made for my sisters graduation. I’ve never seen her use it 🙂
Next up, a little bit better, pot holders and an apron for my Yaya (that’s my g-ma folks). She loves them, that’s why grandmas are the best people. Then I started getting interested in sewing clothes. I appliqued cutesy owls to a skirt (I never wear this) Cheesy cheesy cheesy.
Then I made my first garment, a skirt in icky, quilting cotton. People, I swear I have taste. I didn’t feel like learning how to hem yet, so I bound the bottom in bias binding. I was super pleased with myself and wore this on the fourth of July.
At this point in my sewing voyage, I’d become completely smitten with making things. I became a voracious reader of sewing blogs and books. Absorbing as much knowledge as possible and I decided to focus on making clothes.
My next victim was my husband, poor guy.
I actually really like how this shirt came out. Unfortunately it only lasted two washings. Apparently you need to finish your seams.
Next up 2 missteps. I caught the romper bug and it’s a mistake. Not flattering at all. Probably because I’m not 5. Oh well, they can’t all be wins.
The next is a floral dress that was looking good until I royally messed up the neck band. I still wear it, I don’t care.
I made my little sisters 22nd birthday dress. She looked awesome.
That my friends is about 6 months of work and ya’ll are up to date.
