Ever since I can remember I have loved all things crafty and creative. Bedazzling hats in 2nd grade, mixing perfume samples in 5th, making my own christmas cards in middle school, scrap booking in high school, and teaching myself to sew freshman year of college, just to name a few. I bought myself my very own sewing machine the summer after my first year of college with my minimum wage pay check I earned from working at the local craft store. It didn't take long for me to learn how to use it... and repair it (which I do often since I did buy one of the cheapest ones from Walmart).
My poor sewing machine was left neglected in the closet in our tiny one bedroom apartment for a year due to lack of space but now she has her very own room in our house! And I finally have the opportunity to spend some much needed quality time with her. Here is a peek into the crafty side of my life.
Disclaimer: Ok ok maybe "Sew Fantastic" isn't exactly the best title for this post. I probably should have went with something like "Sew Average" or "Attempting to be Sew Fantastic" but really they just weren't as catchy. So don't be disappointed when the items below aren't really that fantastic...
Felt iPhone Covers
Felt Flower Hair Clips
(I got this idea from one of my fav blogs, MrsPriss)
Wristlet w/ Flower
(the flower is my fav part, probably because it took the longest)
Dress out of mens polo shirt
(please excuse the lack of make-up and hair brushing...)
I would really like to do some tutorials on how to make some of these items but I am still perfecting them. Once I get the hang of it and stop changing things myself than I will attempt to do a tutorial. In the meantime I will continue my love affair with my sewing machine and hopefully will have more crafts to share soon!
