Sewing and Needlework


I used to sew my own clothes back in high school. I've sewn on and off, mostly off, since then. Recently I have been sew inspired by all the talent out there in blog land. I have a long sewing to do list which mostly includes home dec sewing, but I'm sneaking in some just for me projects.


These are next on my list after I finish my new pajamas. I'll be making Amy Butler's Liverpool tunic in her fabric Momento in Midnight (say that five times fast) from Mimis. On the right is some clearance fabric I found at Beverly's. I wish I knew who the designer was! I'll be making pajama pants with it. One can never have too many pajamas, right?


Here's a free pattern I found on Sew4Home! I love that site!!! It's supposed to be a travel sewing kit, but what I really needed was a new needle book. I have so many needles!!! I just had to make this cute kitty since I used to have a black and white cat. I just realized that I forgot to put the button on his tie, oh well. On the right is a special place for my grandma's beautiful scissors. I really enjoyed sewing by hand and doing some simple embroidery. I got some of the felt from Heather Bailey. Great stuff!
