Make It!- Attempting to Sew
As you can see, I have plenty of sewing supplies, 2 sewing machine even! (although 1 doesn't work except to make button holes right now). I even have a 3rd beautiful old sewing machine that is currently a bedside table in the guest room because i need to get the belts replaced.
Lots and lots of fabric to pick from.
This is where i stashed my favorites, so they'd be in sight and would get used. They're gathering dust.
I bought this for curtains in Charlotte's room, but quickly decided I didn't like it for that purpose. But this is my target fabric for my make it today. I will make something with it!
I scored this giant box of vintage patterns at an estate sale for $5. There are some goodies in there, I'm sure, and i was hoping to find a cute little girls dress like on the fabric to make Charlotte and Beatrice matching dresses from. I didn't find exactly what i was looking for, but look what i did find!
Yeah, aren't those great?Look at those legs! But this is during nap time, ans Bea kept waking up, until she finally looked like this.
And this is why I didn't get to sew this afternoon. Maybe after bedtime tonight?
