Sewing Feat #1- Pants

Well I sewed my first pair of pants this they are! Go Me! Well they are not completely done since I did not sew the elastic in or hem them at the bottom, but at least there are two open legs...I think that's an accomplishment! Anywayz, I will be making an actual wearable pair this week hopefully with the ruffles at the bottom and elastic in the waist!

Been MIA...But I'm back!

Hi All my bloggy friends!  I know I have been MIA for a bit. I've been sick and just not up to craft'n (even I can't believe that!...I must have REALLY been sick!) But I'm starting to feel better now, still have some tests to go through but for the most part I'm good!  So back to craft'n and cook'n!  Thanks to everyone for sticking around even though I haven't been here much.

If you've been following me you know I got a new sewing/embroidery machine.  I have sewn a few things here and there, I've even tried out the embroidery side of the machine.  The sewing has gone pretty good, the embroidery...not so much! lol I have no idea WHAT I am doing! The instructions only show how to put a plain square of fabric into the embroidery hoop....there are NO instructions on how to place say a onesie or a pair of baby bloomers on there.  Needless to say the whole onesie trial ended in me embroidering the front and the back together! LOL  The embroidery was beautiful, you just couldn't open it up! So if ANYONE can explain to me how to do this or can send me a youtube video or SOMETHING I would appreciate it!

Here are the fabrics I will be wrking with this weekend for a couple of projects.  One is a Christmas pillowcase dress and the other will be a pair of ruffled pants!

If anyone has any recent sewing projects posts, send them to me and I will feature them here.

Sew'n some stuff...

The new machine is set up and off I go into my sewing/ embroidery adventure.  Here's the machine I am working pretty well sewing, haven't tried the embroidery part yet (that will be this weekend).

My test item was a baby blanket, and although the picture shows it folded up, it came out pretty good.

Send me some of your current sewing projects and I will post them! Happy Sew'n!
