MIXED P R I N T S

Hello Everyone!

Hope all is well, and Blessed with you all as it is with me. I’m both grateful and thankful being able to see this day, and being strengthened through God’s Grace and Mercy.

I will like to share my most recent Sewing Project which was very challenging for me. This is my first ever Fully Lined Garment. All thanks to GOD for making it all worked along with patience, and determination.

My Granddaughter inspires me with sewing more these days. She compliments me with each and every project I make. She likes watching me sew and actually wants to try using the Fabric Machine as she calls the Sewing Machine.

The dress is made from two different fabrics.

The most difficult task in sewing this dress was the lining which I wanted it to look reversible. Also for the first time was machine gathering. Here’s the Fully Lined/wrong side of the dress.

Here’s the right side of the dress.

I believe in waste not want not. I had some fabric leftover and thought why not upcycle one of My Granddaughter’s Sweaters. Kindly excause the color variation of the camera. The pics were taken at a different time.

Out of both sleeves I was able to get four patches, for a scarf.

The last piece I was able to sew a Tote Bag.

SKIRT & Tote Project

Posted on

Hi Everyone!

Hope all is well, and Blessed by God’s Grace.  I’m most definitely Blessed by HIM each day HE allows me another chance to see another day.

I was Blessed with this Beautiful Printed Fabric by a friend a while back. I finally made something out of it. The fabric was just enough for this project, and to be creative with what I already have.

The project is for my granddaughter, therefore a pair of her Old Jeans was made into a New Skirt, and a Tote Bag.

The preparation:

CUT JEANS PANTS

NEXT, I cut two pieces of the Printed Fabric to be stitched in the middle of both front, and back of the bottom cut pants for the Drawstring Skirt.

The upper part of the Jeans Pants will be made into a Tote Bag.

Here are the Finished Projects:

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a Blessed Christmas, and the day after is the same. God is good, and my family and I were more than Blessed.

The weather outside is cold, and cloudy, but inside we are having a wonderful time. My granddaughter was excited about her doll’s Play Clothes, and wanted something similar.

Here are some PHOTOS:
