    If Only I Followed Directions, Better...

     I like freestyling my clothing. Unfortunately, this makes a ton of mistakes. I realize that when I follow patterns (which I HATE doing) or just even follow written instructions (which helps A TON), I can make really good clothing. :) I need to make more clothes! I really...

    I Used To In My Teens

    I made my grad dress.

    It was something worth sharing as it is something that few others dare to do! It was a fun time! I found a moving sale and got 2.5 meters for 70% off and I bought a series of other things but didn't end up using them for my dress, I intend to use them for other projects though...

    My Mom Could Sew Anything....

    Me, I get confused trying to thread the bobbin!  Even so, I am saving my pennies for my own sewing machine, and trying to find a place to set it up. I enjoy every week of Project Runway...i wish they would show more of the actual work time, and less of the drama.

    I bond to my old clothes, they become an extension of me. It'll wear them until they're tattered. Tossing them out is like tossing out a part of me.
