In the last few months I have been really focusing on my sewing. It is very stress relieving to sew, and I’m learning so many new skills. I am completely self taught….as I almost failed my sewing project in high school home ec….she actually laughed at my shorts.
I don’t blame her, they did have legs that were two inches different.
Anywho, I usually sew on the weekends, John works then, and I am not busy doing school with the kids. I like to do my baking on Saturday mornings and then sew in the evenings of the weekend.
Weekend party animal over here!
It is a challenge to sew new things and learn new skills, and I must admit that I love it! I love to learn anything new, and I love that I can create things that are useable. I must tell you though, now that I’m learning to make clothes better, I am highly critical of things at the store. I cannot believe how poorly constructed they are, but then what can you expect with working conditions abroad….
Here is what I have been working on this weekend.
I tried my hand at serging some diapers with the blind elastic technique.
See that ruffled look on the legs? That is what is supposed to happen with blind elastic, so it worked!
I made these for Grace, since apparently, she’s never going to potty train. No, I do believe she will, it’s just that currently she is afraid of the potty. No rush I suppose, she’s just 2 and 2 months.
She loves fluff and I can’t blame her, these are super soft. The inside is bamboo and cotton velour. If you’ve never felt bamboo fleece, you are missing out. Bamboo materials are the softest materials. I ordered some to make myself some pants. I’m not the best at serging, but I still love how these turned out.
