An Idea is Born

I sort of got the idea of having a craft blog after joining pinteret and seeing other people's blogs. This will mainly be pictures and is sort of more for myself than others but if you enjoy it, by all means follow along. :) over the past few weeks i've been working on a number of sewing projects, mainly converting jeans into skirts & quilts. This is what i've got so far... this didn't turn out quite the way i had hoped, it was my first attempt... next i did a long one... then i tried some ruffled ones... (these ones are not complete yet) i got sick of ruffles so took a break and made a little baby cocoon for my next neice/nephew. i still have to attach some velcro to fasten it shut. (the last pic is the pattern i used)


  1. Those skirts are pretty cool--are they for you, or others? I love the little baby bunting! Knitting pictures soon?

  2. skirts went back to the orphanage for the young mamas. i love the baby bunting too; it was SO easy to make! i tried it out when i was babysitting the new orphan and it worked wonderfully. i realized tho that i need to make a bigger one if it is to be for my sister's baby.
