It's Sew 2010

One of my new year's resolutions is to learn to sew. My godmother gave me her sewing machine to use so I already have a jump start. I now just need to learn how to use it! So I will be signing up to take a beginning sewing class at The Needle Shop in Chicago. I have heard really great things about them and am excited to get started!

My goal is to be able to make my own purses and things for my apartment- like curtains and pillows.

While browsing some items on Etsy, I came across some things that I would love to make myself.

I am obsessed with anything that has ruffles. How cute is this little wristlet??

Or this throw pillow??

Or this tote??

And I really want to make some cafe curtains for the window above my kitchen sink.

  1. I love that wristlet and pillow! I am not huge on ruffles but those speak to me

  2. Good Luck with your sewing. I have been sewing for years and years and I love it. It is amazing what you can create with fabric.
