Anyway, my most recent project seriously has me asking, "Did I do that?!" If you asked me two months ago if I would ever sew a garment for Madison, I'm pretty sure I would have laughed at you. Now I've made TWO! There was, of course, her Pebbles costume, but that didn't really count in my mind because it was made to be "rustic". I just popped a couple hand stitched seams down the sides, attacked it with scissors, and called it a day. This time, I used an actual sewing machine (gasp) and made a non-costume garment for her. Meaning it wasn't supposed to look homemade.
It all started when I saw this on Pinterest:
So I went to our local thrift store, bought myself a $3 shirt, and brought it home to try out the tutorial.
Shirt (thrifted): $3
Elastic (4 yds, only used 18 in): $2
It took about forty minutes to sew, including ironing (yuck). Not a bad return for my first "real" sewing project! The best part? The next one (and there will be more for sure) will only be $3 (since the elastic's paid for). Less if I drag myself to the cheap thrift store fifteen minutes down the road!
What's your favorite beginner sewing project? I've got SO much to learn!
Happy Friday (again)
