NBR- I've been crafty this week (AW & PIPs)

So MH was away, so my sewing machine came out to play! I have been collecting fabric with big plans of making stuff, but just never get around to it when MH is home because I make a mess of our kitchen to sew.

So I have a favourite skirt and decided I wanted more like it (the style) so I measured it out and made one and it turned out like this

Not too shabby for not having an actuall pattern! I changed the waistband a bit from the original as well and it is super comfy. So than I made two more (actually one is still a WIP).

Than I made an easy jersey skirt (but all I have is a blurry pic)

Anyways I just had to share!!!!

    Thanks ladies!! I really enjoy doing stuff like this. If only I had my library/craft room, I would be able to get more sewing in.

    Honestly the Jersey skirt was so frigging easy, if you do have a sewing machine, anyone could make it.

    You've inspired me to get a needle for my machine, then some material.  I've made skirts without using patterns, and it is easy for simple styles!

    I have two sewing machines that were given to me, but I don't have the slighest clue what to do with them! I haven't touched a sewing machine since home ec in 7th grade.  I might consider learning though. Big Smile

  • You did a great job. They look so good!!!

    Great job! I'm adding a skirt to my pile of projects to attempt, now. But first, I need to make the curtains for my boys' playroom!
