I did it....and a giveaway!!!

As I've said before, I just started sewing a little over a year ago....and I haven't been brave enough to make anything I can wear....BUT I got this baby for my birthday......and wanted to try a skirt. {I know it's not hard}.

I used this pattern....

...and in less than an hour....I had this CUTE skirt. {really, it was SO fast}. I did a rolled hem at the bottom and let it ruffle, it's so light. I love it!!!

so then I decided to make a pair of pants...I used an old table cloth I got at Salvation Army for $1 and cut it all up. They turned out ok....not as great as the skirt. Next time I will adjust the pattern a little bit, but that is why I was practicing on an old table cloth!!!! {don't you just love that hot pink?} I also did a rolled hem on the bottom and let them ruffle a little.

And because I was having SO much fun....I made this cute apron from a $2 panel I got at Hobby Lobby. It was so fast and easy and I am LOVING my new serger! I can't wait to come up with more projects to use it on!!!

AND....the GIVEAWAY.....

Like this cute apron? Leave us a comment and it could be yours. YEP, that's all you have to do, just leave a comment. I'll pick a random winner on Tuesday August 10th!

Happy Sewing!



  1. Great job! I am also a little scared to try making my own clothes. How do you like the serger? Was it easy to figure out?

  2. I LOVE the serger. It was very easy, it comes with a DVD showing how to thread it and I was able to back up 3-4 times until I figured it out. It's been GREAT so far!

  3. I wish I could be as creative as you, or maybe just confident enough to try to be. I had my mom make Ashley a blanket this weekend instead of trying myself. Love the apron.

  4. Cute cute cute! I love that you find fabric to practice on and it turns out SO well, too! Would love that adorable apron, too! :)

  5. As I looked at that cute apron, I was thinkin', I LOVE that... and then, now, I might win it? too good to be true. Love the bargain hunting, and the things you make with your finds.

  6. You did a great job on everything!! I'd love to win that adorable apron!!

  7. I love the apron it is so cute!!! I love the quilt you made me even more though!! I would love the apron just not as much if you know what i mean!
