Love the way this skirt turned out. The inspiration was this post from Mme ZsaZsa. I great project that would be great big or small and does not require a pattern. We simply doubled the width of her waist and made 8 pleats of 2 inches each, but really you could play around with the width and the frequency of them. Our young sewista did a great job, especially with the zipper.
We had a little extra time on our hands so we quickly stitched up this little basket. As a last minute idea we decided to stitch some letter beads on. Don’t know why I never used these to sew on projects before. Love it.
In a lesson a a few weeks ago my young student wanted to make something for her pooch. I have to say that it was one of the cutest dogs ever saw, so I was equally pumped for the project. We decided on a dog bed and managed in the 2 hours to not only finish the bed but to also bang out a little matching pillow AND a little hair tie. The tie was supposed to be for fluffy but I think owner deserves something for the all the hard work.
Back at home… Success it is now officially Pooch approved.
We finally finished this shirt. It is actually a super simple pattern from a book (breaking my head trying to remember which one….) it is the perfect shape for every figure. Great now with jeans then pair it with some smart shorts and flops for summer. I great advanced beginner project.
Can not believe how much this girl has grown. When she first walked into the store over 3 years ago, she was just a wee thing….
These two who are beyond cute, managed to make a pair of customized tumblers that are ALMOST as cute as they are.
What really breaks your heart is that they made them for their near and dear friends.
As far as I’m concerned we don’t get enough boys in here. When we do get a young guy or boy with the aim of getting crafty they always make the coolest stuff and are very clear and concise about what they want to do. Just like this memory board made this one. Practical, perfect and pretty darn awesome.
I had one of my budding designers in over the weekend that wanted to get back into sewing and start to make a dent on her gift giving. We looked at a couple of patterns and decided on this little owl/slash pin cushion. She opted for a pretty winter white for the owl and some gorgeous muted tones for the matching bits and pieces. I love things like this that are not only pretty but also practical.
Words going through this little darlin’s head while decorating her pretty notebook.
These two cuties continued the Mini Messenger trend. Adorbs!
