Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great week so far. Here’s a pair of socks I made. They’re super easy to make! I took one of my old socks and cut at the places where it curved so it would lay flat. Then I used that as my pattern and sewed at the seams. Viola…you have a sock! I hope you enjoy! :)
Next green dress- Salvation Army $2
Vintage brown sweater (I made into a cardigan) - Salvation Army $1.50
Green socks – I made them from scraps of fabric I had laying around.
Brown oxfords- Salvation Army $1.50

Hey everyone! Here's a drawing I did the other day. I forgot how much I liked drawing. I used to draw all the time when I was little, but then I switched to knitting and other fun stuff. I'm starting to pick it back up again. :)
I hope you're all having a great Saturday and don’t forget to set you’re clocks forward!
P.S. If you know the source of the original photograph could you let me know. I saw it on a blog once, but I forgot the name of the blog...I've been trying to figure it out and it's been driving me nuts! Haha It'd be much appreciated!

Hey you guys! Sorry for not posting a whole lot. I’ve been pretty busy with school and work, (saving up for a new camera). :D I just finished making this dress this morning. I used the retro Butterick 5209 pattern. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. I messed up a little on the back though, but that’s ok…I was going to fix it, but I was feeling rather lazy. I hope you enjoy!
My photos aren’t really anything special. I just went outside and played around pretending I could dance. Haha actually there’s a road right by that field where I was taking pictures and after a while of shooting I notice jogger staring at me. And here I was spinning and jumping around with my self timer on…he must have thought I was a complete loon! Haha.
So a couple of you have asked for some sewing tips so here’s a tip that I learned a while back and it’s really helped.
TIP #1. If you’re working on a project where you have to gather a lot, put elastic thread in the bobbin and shirr it. You’ll save a bunch of time and you’ll get a more even gather.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend!
