Adventures in Sewing

I have been computer-less for over a week.  My wonderful hubby got a new job that required him to take away my lifeline all week.  I did get a small reprieve when I went into work all weekend, but I only got a few minutes break.  It is kind of sad how addicted I am!

Anyways, enough rambling.  Here is one of the latest projects I have been working on.


I make a fabulous model don’t I?  I guess I should dress up a little better on my crafting days just in case I need to be in a photo.  I probably looked a little spiffier than I do sitting in my pajamas right now!

One of my goals for 2011 was to learn to sew.  I chose a package of apron patterns that looked cute and found this fabric that I absolutely loved.  I had no clue how much to buy or how to read the back of the package, but I asked for several yards and ran.


Here’s a close up of the fabric.  Isn’t it perfect for an apron?  Well I bought a lot of it so stay tuned for a little sundress I’m going to make for Katie.


Shout out to my mom, Bev at Make Good Cheer.  She is taking the time to show me how to sew just how her mother and grandmother did for her.  I am so excited to pass this new little tradition on to Katie some day.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!

  2. Cute apron and the fabric is awesome! Also, the new background on you blog is so nice.

  3. Oh, how I would have loved to help instruct you on your sewing Erin, as this is what my schooling is in! Rachel was never into sewing but Alex made a few small animals when he was in grade school. Beverly is lucky to have you to share this with and in the future...Katie!!!

    All Looks Great! Keep up the great work, Erin

    Love, Aunt Margaret
