Finished projects...

...that I love but...


...this one is too big. :(
I guess when I measured my own body measurements I got something wrong. Bummer. So my first piece of clothing made by me will not be for me. The top is from the S.E.W. book (sew everything workshop) an it is called the Flouncy Tank Top. Fabric by Alexander Henry.


...this one is just right...

I made these luncheon size napkins for my Mom as part of her Mother's Day gift. I bought the fabric at one of my favorite local quilt shops a while back and the pattern is from the Bend-The-Rules book. I loved these and my mom did too!


I have my fabric all lined up for the Emmaline apron. I plan on reading over the pattern tonight and cutting out the fabric tomorrow if time allows. Also, I plan to look over a couple more clothing patterns I have to give it another go with clothes for may(d) for me.

Great top! Fabric is perfect... This is why I'm afraid to sew for myself.

What size is it? Are you going to sell it in your shop??? Inquiring minds want to know.

I think a med. is going to be to big for me, but sewing measurements are so wierd, as in small. I usually wear a size small/ and am very flat chested :(

that happens to my a lot, fit is the hardest darn thing to get right. I am about to cut into my liberty today to make a dress and it makes me really nervous!
