I realized recently that I have only done one post about my sewing adventures. I would hate for you to think I haven't touched my machine since then. So to prove that I didn't build up a bunch of hype about wanting a sewing machine, I took a few photos of my new sewing projects.
I have not yet delved into using patterns, so for now I just find the fabric, get inspired, and use other objects in my wardrobe to be my guide.
Hope you enjoy the new creations :)
I bought 3 of these tops on sale ... 3 for $10.
When I was looking at them I noticed they didn't fit right. I believe the designers intent was to have the sides scoop in and make baggy pockets. When I tried them on it just looked all wrong. I decided to buy the tops anyway and cut them down to size and
use the extra fabric to make cute details.
Here is the process
I used the extra fabric to make ruffled flowers.
After the flowers were made I hand sewed
them on so they would be secure and not flop around.
Here is the finished project up close.
Here is the second top I redid. It was fall time when I did this
one so I decided it would be fun to do a leaf pattern.
I don't think I own anything plaid so I decided to give it a shot.
I spent some time researching images of plaid skirts and other
regular skirt styles until I decided on this one.
This skirt was inspired by a Fashion Week designer.
The skirt I saw was a mini skirt but had looser
ruffles and more layers. I took the concept and made it my own...
I think it turned out really fun and flirty.
I have also been wanting to make a vintage looking necklace out of old keys... After some searching and cleaning and scrubbing I came out with this little gem. I really love the look of it.
I have a few other projects in line that I should be posting soon!!
As my husband would say... "Craft Hard"
