A new toy!

I've had it for over a month...just getting around to sharing the good news! A local seamstress upgraded and wanted to sell this. It's now my first serger! Let the fun begin!

Checking in: THE FIRST FOUR!

Decided to grab some inspiration from my fellow DIY bloggers. This is a snippet of some of what I've done the first four months of this year. :-)

DIY skirt

Hello! As we attempt to carry out some of our 2017 sewing goals, below are some pictures of a skirt that we made last week.  I attended DC Sip and Sew- a monthly sewing event in the greater DC area. The patterns were already drafted according to size. Always a nice environment!
Choices, choices-fabric selection!
 Instructions to do the piping on our own!

Catching up-we've been sewing!

Howdy! We've been tardy here, but been posting on other social media outlets (like IG).

Last week and this past Saturday, attended two sewing meetup related events. The one here (see below) was where participants bring their craft, machine, etc. and work on whatever you'd like.

I've been working on hearts for a Mommy&Me neonatal program. Almost done! Stay tuned for another post soon!

Sew many little time!

Do you ever feel that way at times? So many projects you want to create, work on, but so little time. A trillion thoughts running through your mind. All I can do is just one at a time. Just one! Got more goodies for so please stay tuned!

Can't wait-this is what's next!

Looking SEW forward to sewing my first pencil skirt tomorrow! I'll be at the Sip and Sew. :-) Until then, stay tuned and TA-DA! (come back for more pics and fun)!

Guess what we sewed today?!

Had the opportunity to attend another Sip & Sew. This was a different one in another location. There were a total of 6 (I think). We made a DIY lined clutch (one person made a zippered pouch). Enjoy!
 Gathering fabric!
 Stitching lining, interfacing, & everything else!

 Loving it!
 The organizer was so kind to make tags for us!

More sewing fun to share!

Sorry...I was tardy for not posting the rest of the party!

More from Sip & Sew DC!
 Not mine, but I have a Brother!

CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Another one (almost) like the other one!

I had this bad boy in DRAFT since 12/31/16. Another reversible hat. Will try my hand at more later this month!! :-) 

So about 3 weeks ago, we did one and posted on IG (@wannasew2). Did another one this weekend. Made it a little one, my turn. You like? :-)

Reversible toddler's fleece hat.

Whipped this up last night using a video tut from the Crafty Gemini's channel. It will be for my 2 year old nephew! :-). I'll post another pic with him in it next time he comes around!

Lots of fun and inspiration had!

ASG Annual luncheon, fashion show, stash sale: you name it, we had it. Over the past year, our chapter made duffel bags for children in the foster care system. PICTURE HEAVY!
 Lookie look what I won! (I'll open it later!)
 Prize table!
 I won again! Ticket was underneath chair so I got to take home the centerpiece!
 Lovely quilt!
 Apron with places of travel plus airline tickets! How unique!
 Three outfits! Talk about a great use of fabric!

I thought I was going to get one more sew on during National Sewing Month. Time slipped by and other things took priority. :-). Wish I had Columbus Day off, but we no longer get that one off. Too tired to show you the fabric. I'll post it when I'm able to get to it. See you soon! :-)

We doubled-down!

Got them done! Please ignore the terry cloth recants. I cleaned them off -just too lazy to take another pic. These were fun and I'm sure I'll be doing more soon! (PS: I closed the openings and got the terry cloth off after taking the pic).

This just hit: This is HORRIBLE

I was (and still will) going to post when I went to my feed and saw Peter's recent post: Paron's in NYC going out of business!

This is so sad:
