i’m sure you were dying to know what i did with THESE fabrics. well, even if you aren’t all the interested (& you probably aren’t) i’m posting pictures anyways. i was quite impressed with myself. i’ve pretty much self-taught myself to sew. well, not totally. i did take home ec in 7th grade & my mom helped me sew an “awesome” sundress that same year. but i pretty much hadn’t touched a sewing machine in years. a couple of christmas’ ago my mom must have been struggling for a present, because i ended up with a sewing machine, totally out of the blue. it probably sat in it’s box for about a year before i finally decided to break it in. since then, i’ve been sewing non-stop. what takes people a jiffy, will probably take me hours because i don’t know any of the “short cuts” & i keep trying things until i get it right. (think mitered corners… that one had me stumped for weeks!) anyway, as usual i’m rambling. but this project was my first attempt at actually using a pattern, which, by the way, did not make the process any easier. in fact, it was way harder. i obviously don’t think in the same way that most people do, because trying to follow the pattern really had me scratching my head. i finally got the “princess poof” done & i’m pretty pleased. but now i think i can add sewing patterns to my ever growing list of things i’m scared of. they are right up their with turkeys & cook books. so without any further ado… kate’s princess poof! happy birthday ‘lil girl!
super cute. at least you use your sewing machine for sewing on fabric. my machine is exclusively for scrapbooking. yep...i sew on paper!
