Sew Fantastic!

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!


  1. Nooo, I'd say it's 'fantastic'! Those iPhone covers are freaking adorable!! And I'm so glad you got some use out of the felt rosette tutorial... thank you for the link love!

  2. Thanks!! Can't wait to try out your newest tutorial :)

  3. Ahh Meg you are good with the sewing machine! :) Those phone covers are CUTE!

  4. Thanks! I stitch the covers by hand to give it a specific look :)

  5. You make me wanna be all crafty :)

  6. You are very talented and definitely sew fantastic! I want to re-learn/teach myself to sew. I love the iphone covers....teach me, teach me!!! :) Or you could do a give away and send me one! :) I have a blackberry....will it fit?
    :) Anyway, keep up the good work! I'm a new follower and love your blog so far!

  7. Kitty, you should definitely reteach yourself to sew! It's very relaxing to me and plus you get to makes lots of cute stuff! I will be selling the iphone covers on my etsy shop as soon as it gets up and running (which may be a while haha) but I think a give away would be a wonderful idea!

    Thanks for the wonderful complements :)

  8. I found your blog through Heir to Blair and can I just say that I LOVE the iPhone covers!! The one with the owl is my definite fav! :)
