SimplyCyn is just too awesome and OMG! She still has her lapel pin! This is one of my first customers with one of the first button boutonnieres I ever made! Check out her blog for style tips so you can be awesome too! 🙂
Patterns were on sale for $1 at JoAnns. I had no idea patterns were $20 so I jumped at the deal. I got a set of doll clothes and some sets in my size also. I figured I would start with the doll clothes, that way I can learn how to cut out and assemble patterns and practice without using up yards of good fabric… cause that can get pricey. The tiny clothes are kind of frustrating, OMG pressing the seams had me terrified. I have a fear of irons… maybe I watched that episode of ‘Good Times’ few times too many.
On my very first trip to Tuesday Morning look what I found! BUTTONS! My first time shopping at Tuesday Morning… OMG!!! Why didn’t anyone let me in on this secret?!?!? 4 years ago I lived 2 minutes from this place. I would have been there all the time if I only knew. I just got around to sorting them today.
We are experiencing a massive blizzard at the moment. I picked up this fabric last week and discovered, I didn’t buy nearly enough for regular pillowcase (what was I thinking)?! So I picked up a 16×16 pillow at Walmart yesterday and made this. It was easy, but not that easy LOL!!
I am on a mission to learn how to properly install a zipper and attach tote handles. The zippers are giving me fits. Sometimes they come out great, and most of the time, not so good. I need to figure out why its so inconsistent. I think my pinning/clipping is not so great and things get wonky. Look at those cats! I’m making myself a bag with them!
