Another Sewing Project

Last spring, I posted about my friend Amber’s awesome sewing skills that she’s passing along to me.

Early this summer, my sweet, amazing hubby allowed me to buy a sewing machine and accessories from someone on Craigslist. Since then, I’ve been having fun doing some basic projects.

I learned how to make the crayon roll, with a little added monogram on the outside for fun. Here’s a crayon roll tutorial if you want to try it yourself. And here’s a peek at the latest one I completed. (Ahem, Melissa, if you read this…don’t show this to Emma. She’s getting one exactly like it for her birthday. Except with an “E,” not an “M.”)


If you’d like to learn more about how to applique, I found this tutorial really helpful. It was actually pretty simple and fun to make these shirts for our good friends the Dows, who just had twin girls (and now have four girls altogether, with names all starting with the letter “M” – which you probably could have figured out on your own). Sorry if you already saw these pictures a while ago on Facebook.

I also made a cute little hair accessory to go with the shirt for M #1’s birthday, but alas, totally forgot to take a picture. Maybe I’ll snap one if I ever see her wearing it.

Anywho, this is my fun, new hobby that I have almost no time for, but love anyway. If you sew and have any fun ideas for me, please share!

  1. http://endlesscrafting.blogspot.com/2010/05/book-slings.html I’ve considered making these myself. So cute, and takes up next to no space!

    Also, I’ve been imagining how to use left over fabric to create a matching clothes hamper for Bristol’s room. Maybe a light wooden frame with a “bag” sewn out of fabric scraps to hang on it?

    And a major but awesome project that you’ve mentioned before…bedding! (pillows are a great way to use the leftover fabric too!)
