Adventure In Creativity

Back in December I bought some fabric to rediscover my love for creating. To the right you see the "before picture" of the materials I used.

I didn’t have a pattern or any concept of how to make a lining or add a zipper. There was a lot of figuring it out as I went but somehow it all came together and made the perfect gift for Gina.

Here are the after shots:






Oooh...zipper and a lining!





There you have it my first sewing project in over ten years.

WOW! That looks amazing, Liz!! You certainly are talented. I would have no clue how to do that sort of thing. Props to you :) I hope she liked her gift!!

I should learn how to sew. Hm. I would prolly have to get a sewing maching first...

Thank you both, and Gina loved it.

A sewing machine really helps. I don't actually have one, part of why this is the first thing I've sewn in years. A woman in the church loaned me hers to make costumes for the kids play allowing me to do a few personal projects as well.

Heidi, I bought new fabric over Christmas and I am not sure what to do with it.
