I've been tackling my crochet projects as well as start, what feels like, a million sewing projects. With the week I've had, it's amazing I've managed to get up in the morning. Let alone get involved with the extracurricular.
So along with a finished project, you'll see a few in progress.
This one has been alot of fun. It's neck warmer. I've wanted to get that yarn for a long time. I finally bit the bullet at got it. And I so love it. I'll have it finished up in the next day or two and I'll show you what it looks like finished. It has a button hole!
This was a Home Ec project, a zippered pencil case. This is a bit of hand me down fabric that has glitter on it. This one was fun because I made it to give it away. Went out in the mail last Saturday with a little surprise inside. It was so cute!
I've started deconstructing this dress. It's one my mom used to wear in the 70s. I got to wear it for a short time in junior high. But it hasn't fit me in a long while. I've decided to make some pillows out of it. Excited.
You can't really tell how long it is in this, but it used to be longer. I've taken in the sides and shortened it. It was a dress I got on clearance 2 years ago, still had the tags on it. 🙂 I've never found the right place to wear the dress, and it was a little big. Even when I bought it. It still needs a bit of work, but it's well on it's way to becoming a wearable tunic. Yay!
My little dog goes to a little doggie sleep over every week while I'm at my late classes. This week I used the heart bag I had made to cart her supplies. It's a touch too big. So I found this doggie fabric to make her a doggie bag. It's sooo cute! It has little wiener dogs on it! So excited to make a smaller bag that will be less cumbersome and super cute at the same time.
And that's it! Since this weekend is 3 days long, I'll be getting all this stuff finished and cleaned up. With few other projects on the list, it'll be a busy weekend. Since there's not money to spend, finishing the current projects is a good idea. 🙂
