I'm determined to have a productive week ahead. And short of saying I don't have budget to do any more extravagant projects, well, I'm gonna do sewing projects this week. Its kinda sad that I don't have any nice fabrics to work with, but this site I found is simply so nice and helpful for someone like me who wants to start doing crafty things. The steps she gives are simple and easy to follow. I'm just bummed that she uses such great fabrics and I don't have any. I'm going to try to look for retaso sellers soon so I can make some good projects too.
Here's the website I'm referring to: http://makeitandloveit.blogspot.com. I know those moms and crafty people will like it too.
Here are my first two projects, the directions of which I got from the the site above:
1. Grocery Bag Holder. Here fabrics she used here are so much more beautiful, and I would love to have something similar to work with. Since I don't, I used some simple katsa and green ribbon that I have here at home.
2. This one is from a similar project I got here which I simply tweaked so I can place as a tools holder in our storage room. Again I used the katsa at home and made a bigger version than the one she used, and made it good for hanging instead of a belt. I do intend to do one for Jessica, granting I can find good fabrics to work with.
3. My third project is Jessica's doll's dress. Baby Alive has been naked most of the time what with her shirt always coming off, so this dress is really a cute change for the little girl. :-)
