Pillow and Oven Mitts

Pillow

My first steps in the adventure of making my own pencil skirt back in January 2012 led me to my first project  "The French Envolope Pillow".  In Diana Rupp's, Sewing Studio class on Craftsy I learned how to make the French Envelope Pillow plus the Naughty Secretary skirt.

I was able to complete the pillow using all remnant fabric I bought on a whim at Jo-Ann, and I had a standard pillow I had gotten from iKea as the pillow form. I liked the finish product so much and I had enough fabric left over, I made another pillow right away.

Oven Mitts

I found these juicy Oven Mitts pattern online at Sew4Home, after making the pillows, so they became my next project, I just had to make them, yes I still planned on making the skirt. But the mitts looked like a fairly simple and fun project to get me going, while I work my way up to doing my first actual piece of clothing garment.

I like Pirate theme items, again I used remnants for …

It begins

Usually for me it begins when I cannot find what I need, then I come up with an idea, and "walla" I am knee deep in before I know what is happening, and that is how I begun my journey of sewing. 

I decided to make a Skirt, then I made a pair of Pillows, Oven Mitts, and now I am making a Bag, I have come to the the realization that I will sew just about anything.

Welcome to my blog, creating makes me happy, and sharing with others who also enjoy creating will be enjoyable indeed.
