Made by me

I have really enjoyed sewing lately. I sometimes think back on that sewing class I took on a whim in college and am sew glad I did! Okay, that was a nerdy pun, but I couldn't resist. Anyway, it is strangely fulfilling to take a yard or two of fabric and create something new and totally unique out of it. A couple of months ago I made this:
And in case you weren't sure, I was talking about the skirt. I made the girl a few years ago. I'm crafty like that.
I'm not as fun to sew for, but I made this skirt for myself out of some cool fabric.
I absolutely love this skirt I made for Sareny a week ago. I think it turned out darling, especially with the matching headband.
These are Sareny's snow boots that her grandma got her for our December visit to Washington. She wears them every single day here in Phoenix...come sun, or more sun.

I love this picture.

Cute skirts! You are sew crafty! ha ha. I liked your pun. I didn't know you took a sewing class at BYU - I heard they are hard. Anyways, it paid off...you make the cutest things!

I love that Sareny love-os her snow boots! Those skirts are adorable. She must have a million skirts, I swear. Seems like you make her one once a month. But it is fun to sew. I have always loved it. It's so rewarding to create something cute. I'm into sewing myself right now, as you know. I have been sewing up a storm too.

I love the skirts you made. You know how you said you are about writing? I'm like that with sewing. I keep meaning to get back into it, but so far it hasn't happened. It would help if I retrieved my sewing machine from the sister who borrowed it a few years ago, but she actually uses the thing. ;)

Thanks for visiting my blog. I may have to stalk you.
