Over the holidays, I was bit by a sewing bug so here are a few projects I worked on. Eat your heart out Martha.
a Kickstarter project for Alexia at Green Bee Sewing. I'm a HUGE sucker for cratfy Kickstarters. I was very excited about the pattern and the bag turned out really cute and really huge. I got the online fabric from Hawthorne Threads.
Overall, the pattern was very easy to follow, even for a novice like me. Lesson learned though... don't use contrasting thread if, like me, you have difficulty sewing in a straight line. Oops. I was mainly just too lazy to change out my thread from a different project. #lazysewing.
Another project that I've been planning to do for a long time was this freaking adorable dog coat that I saw in my Martha Encyclopedia of Sewing. I got a Living Social coupon from my favorite local fabric strore, G Street Fabrics, which is handily/dangerously located extremely close to our new house.
What should I make next? I'm (very slowly) still working on a wonky patchwork quilt of fabrics left over from the wedding but I tend to like projects that take less than a weekend. Suggestions welcomed!
