I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I sure did. I thought I would share some (okay, most) of my gifts that pertain to my love of sewing and vintage.
My Christmas project for this year got its first airing this past weekend with a Christmas piano recital.
So here is a sneak peek of what my current project plans are or other sewing related news.
I would like to hang this in my room during Christmas. I bought this panel at Hobby Lobby last year when I was visiting my Grandparents. I originally thought I wouldn't be able to get it done this Christmas. I didn't want to spend money on sewing projects but our new Joanns store was opening and I had a gift card! So I was able to get the batting, and I searched the stash for a suitable backing.
I thought I just might show off another one or two of my Christmas presents. Quite a bit of my Christmas list was sewing related, although not entirely since I got my new cowboy hat!
One of my dearest friends knows me well enough to have completely nailed my Christmas presents this year. This cute little vintage picture and shotgun shell turkey decorated the outside of my gift.
I can finally put this series to rest that it should have gotten a long time ago. Why not add that fabric you are dying to have to your Christmas list? I haven't been above doing this in the past! Or maybe a gift certificate to your favorite fabric store. I think I am about to break down and buy some silk for a dress that I really want to make!
More than a day late and a dollar short, I know, but there is still time to add something to your Christmas list! Maybe some sewing machine needles should be on there..... I hardly ever remember to buy these until I absolutely need them. That and rotary cutter blades. Things like that are nice to have in the stash for whenever you need them.
Oh, dear the 12 days of Christmas series techinically ended several days ago, but I still have days 10, 11, and 12 to go! Oops. Next time I do a series like this, I will have to get everything done in advance.
Anyway, who wouldn't want a nice sketch book to document all their ideas?
So if we have nice fresh seam rippers, how about a really nice pair of sharp sewing shears!
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
