We can do this: ZIPPERS AND MORE!

The day after the NYC trip, I had a sewing class with the same person that organized the trip! Full weekend indeed. I did my FIRST: zipper, reversible bag, and first time using any type of interfacing. :-).

 My zipper foot.
 Pinned zipper, lining (interfacing already in).
 I pre-washed it.
 Success for all!
 All the lovely bags!
I forgot to mention: I forgot to sew the lining in. Showed the instructor. The way she resolved it was I had to sew one side using the machine and slip stitch the other side. Thankfully, I learned how to hand sew as a little/big girl. :-). Thanks for stopping by!

Sneak Peak : NYC Garment District

Hi there! I purposely waited to share this one...I went to the Garment District yesterday (9/21). I hesitated because the last time I was suppose to go (April), an injury befell me and I just simply was in too bad of shape to go.

This time, I went with a local group (The Sewing Society). Here's a sneak peak. These were taken with my phone; the rest are uploading from my digital camera so they may take a minute. :-)

 Stay tuned for more soon!

On my way.....

Sew.... I started this skirt, but as you can see, it's still in the works. :-). Since this pic, everything's been cut, now just waiting to carve some time out to sew everything together. This weekend's a wash, so I'll try & squeeze some time in during the weekday.

What are you working on?

What are you crafting or sewing for National Sewing Month? Should be back later this week with at least one item....and hopefully more! :-)

Sunday, September 1, 2013


Can you believe September is already upon us?! This month also marks National Sewing Month! Here's a reminder:

Internaional Sewing Month last!

I'm finally going to get around to at least cutting out one of these views for the skirt this weekend. Got this about 3  months ago, but never started. :-)

I'll keep you posted. Happy sewing & enjoy the long weekend!  :-)PS: Yes, I know it's a summer-ish pattern, however, I'm still gonna do this anyway and get a couple days wear out of it. :-)
