I finally found some time to get a "shop" set up at Artfire. I hope to get some new things listed there shortly. Now that I've got that taken care of I really want to dive into some new fabrics and come up with some new patterns and sew!!
Speaking of new patterns, I randomly went to the thrift store yesterday and found a big bin of sewing patterns (Center of Hope in Oxford). Talk about a time capsule! I found patterns from the 50's and 60's in various states of "falling apart". I plan to go back some time and sift through them in hopes of finding one or two that are intact. I think it would be cool to sew some vintage style dresses. In looking through some of the stuff in the bin, I came across a pattern that had the following disclaimer printed across the front "not suitable for chubby girls". Ha! Boy, things have changed.
Also, I plan to order the book Sew What! Bags by Lexie Barnes. I checked it out at the bookstore and it has lots of great purse, tote, and other projects. The instructions look simple and easy to follow. I can't wait to get started on a new bag. I am a total purse addict. That is the final vestige of the "before baby" me and I'm not letting go of that! And I am a firm believer that a woman can never have too many purses! Especially moms. Well, nap time has finally come and I'm going to go sew.
