New Apron

After getting excited about entering in a give away, I was inspired to sew my niece an apron for her birthday. I plan to make a matching apron for her sister t00! It took me about 1/2 day to sew. You'll probably noticed my mistake right but I decided to leave it and learn again from my mistake!!!! The pocket material should be running vertically to match the lining of my apron but oh well....I doubt a 4 year old will notice or care! She'll be excited to get a package from Auntie Kim!

This is my first give a way that I'm trying to win!!! I am new to the blogging world and very excited to meet new people; especially women who have the passion to sew. You are actually the firstblog I have ever written a response to. I have been sewing for just a little while (about 2 years). Aprons were one of the first projects I made!!!! I hope to post pictures of them soon...I just love aprons...They are so much fun to make and also fun to wear. I have made three so far as presents and everyone adores them. I have enjoyed looking at your blog; seeing all your ideas!!! It makes me want to go to the fabric store, purchase some great material and start sewing another apron!!! You are a great motivator.

This is where I first learned about bloging. One day I goggled sewing and someone's blog was listed and I opened it. I was so thrilled to find so many women passionate about sewing!! It was like opening a great book. I can only hope to be accepted into this new world I found. I am not a great writer but hope that my excitement will help make up for any of my lack of skills. When I read the blogs from this site, I can't help but feel like I belong. It's interesting to find so many women around my age who love sewing!!! I would be thrilled to be accepted into this sewing circle and encourage women who feel the same way I do to start here...... I have added my blog site to this list and hope to be listed within a couple weeks....Happy Sewing Everyone :)

Big list of Sewing blogs - I'm in, are you?

Sewing Projects

This was my very first sewing project. Well, it's really not my very first one. While in high school, my first experience in sewing was not that pleasant!! But, I have heard that from many women that they too had a bad experience so I don't count it!!! The great news....I still wanted to learn to sew...I just needed to let go of my history with sewing. I don't believe this was a bad start! This blanket was made for my niece and her stroller. It was the perfect size for a toddler.
