so, my little "adventures in photography" session must have inspired me to try on other hats, because today i finally pulled out the new sewing machine i bought months ago and set it up. i was also inspired to make something from this cute polkadot material i bought on sale for $1/yard. and here (drumrole please) are the results:
and (ahem) i'd like to add that the little shirt being modeled by maggie was made SANS PATTERN. yes, that's right. i made a t-shirt entirely on my own. now, i know it's not perfect, in fact i had planned on this being a trial piece and i still plan on making another shirt, but i was pretty darn proud of the fact that my mock-up turned out so well. and under a sweater it's actually pretty cute:
we'll see what else i can conquer in the realm of sewing... i have gobs of fabric i buy with these "fun ideas" in mind. i still have gobs of fabric stashed away and no ideas have come to fruition (until now, of course). so, it's time to get busy. i'll keep you all posted.
