sewing

i've been having fun with my new(ish) sewing machine. i got it two years ago and could never figure out how to make it work so it sat in the closet untouched. my mom took a look while she was here and it turns out the machine was defective so i returned it and got a better one. probably should have figured that one out sooner! here are some of my projects to date:


ruffled tulle skirt: inspired by the shoes (she needed an outfit to wear them with) and skirts seen here, here, and here. also, please note the milestone: pigtails inspired by cousin sage.


clockwise from left: camera strap sleeve (i probably should have taken a picture of it in use, but now it's on the camera and it's too complicated), kimono baby booties, sewing machine cozy.

i like having another {useful} outlet for creativity. the first thing i made was a pair of baby legs for haven and since then whenever i get the machine out nash says "are you makin' nash's sock?" i guess he's feeling left out...next on the list is a project for him: a neck-tie.

I have been wanting to make that skirt! It turned out so cute and I love the piggies. Those shoes are way too stinkin' cute too. Way to go! You need to move by me so we can do fun crafty things. I am way better at finishing projects if a friend is doing it with me.

Very cute stuff! What a creative person you are - I am jealous. I have no idea how to use a sewing machine without getting the needle and thread all tangled up. Your pictures are cute as ever. And little Haven is so, so adorable.
