New Sewing Designs!

 I bought and cut up tons of new fabric for skirts, pants and shirts.  Here's what I completed last weekend.

Valentine's Day ruffle skirt. 
I'm also making a pair of ruffled bottom pants and a shirt with the cupcakes on it to match.  The skirt can be work alone or with leggings, depending on how cool it will be down here in February.

Here's one pair of ruffled pants.

I have three other skirts and two more pairs of pants in the works!  I LOVE sewing!! It's my favorite hobby!

Next project....curtains!  When we purchased our house, all the window treatments were already in place however, they are nearing a decade old and are getting dirty, some are stained (but not in noticeable places).  Husband and I wanted to live in the house for a while and get a feel for our decorating style before changing anything.  Now that's it's been 2.5 years, we're ready to change. We are having the interior painted (fingers crossed) in the next couple of weeks and thereafter, it will be the ordering and making of curtains.

Now, we have two story tall ceilings and LOTS of window treatments.  So I'm going to need 40 to 50 yards of fabric and trim (in different styles depending on the room, though our main room will need at least 20 yards)!  Good thing I can sew and make these myself as the fabric alone is going to be pricey!  I really can't wait to start working on them.  It's really not a difficult project, just more time consuming.  But we're not going anywhere so I have all the time in the world!


  1. Oh The cupcake skirt is adorable. You did such a good job on that ruffle between the two fabrics! I an only sew things with very straight lines and easy patterns!

  2. I can't wait to see what you come up with for the curtains.
