In with Pins!

Lately I've been inspired to make some stylish pins. They were fairly easy once I figured out the process. I had some fun vintage fabric already and picked up different color felt from the local craft store as well as some different buttons. These pins make a great looking companion with your favorite tote bag or your most comfortable cardigan or jacket.

I also decided to turn one into a cute little "tweet tweet" onesie with some additional embroidery. I think I know just the friend to give it to when she has her baby! Stay tuned for some more...

Sewing 101

I asked Santa for a shiny new sewing machine last X-mas and he was good to me. Finally, I took it out of it's box and decided to jump in head first by taking a basic sewing class at The Sewing Lounge. To my surprise, I was hooked. Making this nifty reversible tote with old vintage fabrics gave me a whole new outlook on the possibilities with sewing. What's next? Well, you'll have to wait and see...
