I got the sewing bug over the weekend. It's been awhile since I last sat down to sew. It's one of my two favorite things to do. (reading is my favorite.)
So, on Sunday evening, I dug around and found some long lost dress patterns and cut them out. Then I got super excited to make some new stuff for Claire. So I cut fabric for three new skirts for her. I got them finished on Monday morning and she is so happy with them. Then I decided to draft a quick pattern for a pillowcase style dress for her. It didn't take long to draw up and then make. And it is so cute!!
Today I made myself a new wristlet wallet. Ever since I got my new phone (samsung galaxy s3...best phone ever), I've been wanting to find a wallet that my phone will fit into. I haven't liked any that I've seen enough to buy them. So I decided to alter a wallet pattern that I love and make one! I'm really happy with the results. I have a big pocket in the back for my phone and a divided pocket for cards and money. I made the wrist strap detachable and also decided to make a matching chapstick key chain. :) It's always fun when I sew for myself.
I'm thankful that my grandma taught me to sew and that I've never really forgotten it.
