My first sewing project




I almost forgot to post pictures of the first baby taggie that I made yesterday. I have been asking my mom to teach me how to sew, so she won't have to make these for me. Yesterday she called and asked if it was a good day for me to come over. I told her of course and so arms loaded with fabric and ribbons I took the kids next door. I cut out the pieces for the cupcake one, and watched her sew it together. I then ventured out on my own and made the polka dot/circles one. She helped me guide my fabric through the machine once or twice and helped me take out stitches that I had to re-do, but for the most part, 98% of it I did all by myself. I was so excited! So if you need any baby gifts, let me know. This weekend I am going to work on some bibs and burp clothes.

Those are so sweet! Much cuter than the taggies brand :)

i am SEW proud of you! Let me warn you though... like scrapbooking... sewing is quite addictive! It just feels good to make something that wasn't before. Plus, it feels good to say "I made it". Where did you get the cupcake fabric? My friend works at an online fabric store... check out my blog for the link and a coupon code. They have lots of cute stuff.
