Sew What!? :)

This is what has been keeping me busy these last few weeks! I've just started to sew! I did my first project, a wipes case & diaper holder, about three weeks ago. Encouraged by a very sweet friend, I made more!

I've made them in all kinds of patterns and colors...paisley (pictured below), polka dots, gingham, seersucker, sweet prints for boys and girls. I added the bib to the mix! Anyhow, I've enjoyed the challenge, and my sweet girlfriends have really supported and encouraged my new-found talent!
Who knew I had a hidden art of sewing!?!?! :)Yesterday, I joined a group of ladies to learn how to embroider! I did my first embroidery project below.

I look forward to doing more!

Happy Sunday!!

Beautiful work-you are so talented!! I got a sewing machine about 3 years ago for my b'day and still haven't learned how to use it. Let me know if you'd like to give some lessons!
