Sew Proud.

I sewed!

I have been thinking for a while about doing a little business from home. Several months ago, I began thinking about getting an embroidery machine, but I’ve been so busy I just sort of put that thought aside. But it keeps coming back to mind.

Instead of buying a machine, I thought I would do a little sewing first to see how that worked out. So I borrowed my mom’s sewing machine, and I made a pair of pants for Blair!

I just watched the DVD that came with the machine and followed the directions on the pattern. I had to Google a few words! :) I used a shorts pattern and changed it just a little, and I love how they turned out!

She loves them. As soon as I finished them, she put them on!

So I’ll keep trying, and we’ll see where I end up!

Where did you find that adorable fabric? I'm having so much fun sewing for Curry too.

You did a great job! They're adorable! My mom used to sew for the public (still does by request, but does not advertise). I think she got burned out on it years ago! But I feel that you could really make a go of it in our area...especially if you eventually do embroidery as well!

I noticed you've been blogging more lately. Are you still workingin Tifton? If so, I don't know how you find the time to do it all! I don't even have a little one and still struggle trying to juggle everything.

Well, take care and keep have a talent for it!
