Got your attention, didn't I? Well, truth is, I've been having a bit of an affair. Some of you may know, as I've mentioned it from time to time, I have taken up sewing recently. Scrapbooking is no longer my only love, although it will always be my first! ;) I also have been dabbling in some off the page projects. Thanks to this wonderful thing we call the internet, and an even more wonderful thing called Pinterest, I am continuously feeling this overwhelming urge to create!!! I have a bucket list of projects a mile long, and only so much time!
Sewing is something I have wanted to learn for as long as I can remember. I finally decided to just jump in and figure it out!! I have made a couple of quilts, and a couple of dresses, and I am so proud of myself! It's still very challenging for me, and it doesn't come easy to me the way scrapbooking did, but I'm loving the challenge, and the awesome feeling I get once I've created something beautiful.
I will first show you a layout I made, with photos of Lilah in the very first dress I made. I used the sketch over at ScrapFIT for inspiration. Keep scrolling down after the layout and I have few more goodies to show you!
I used scraps of fabric, thread, and ribbon from the dress to make the colors match perfectly!
Here's a the dress I finished last night, for Lilah's 2nd Birthday party. I am really happy with this one! I used a pattern for the first time, if you're interested, you can find it here at HaileyBug'sCloset on Etsy.
...and (gasp!) even a a couple of cards!! Yes, I'm doing something I never thought I'd do, and loving it!
Thanks for enduring my suuuuppper long post, have a great day!!!
