Sophia Carry-All Progress

I got the thread and needle to the fabric. The main pieces are done. Thank goodness. I was so jazzed by that I almost finished the ouside of the bag in one night, almost. I got to the zipper and end pieces, and started making dumb mistakes. So, for once being smart I put it away. Hopefully I will get the outside done tomorrow. Wish me luck!

On My Way...

After much procrastination.... I have finally started on my mom's Sophia bag. I got all the pieces for it cut out! I am soo excited. I just had to finally put my foot down and say, "Today I am not going to spend my whole day cleaning!" And I stopped myself and went to tracing and cutting.

Cross your fingers for me that tomorrow I put some thread to this fabric and get to sewing!

.... I would really like to get started on the millions of projects I have running through my head. Come on Sophia BAG!!!!

Patterns are Scary!!

I bought a sewing pattern about 2 months ago. The Sophia Carry All Pattern by Amy Buttler. It is a really cute bag. I then decided to make it for my mom as a Christmas/50th Birthday Present. I read about it before I bought it. Then after I bought it started seeing posts about how hard it was. EEk. (this is my 1st real pattern by the way.)

I just finally pulled it out yesterday. I ironed on some iron on adhesive to the back of the pattern so I can store it and use it again with out it getting ruined. And I have only cut out the exterior fabric.

I haven't done anything else yet. The house is a little hectic with Gray going back to school from track break. And because, well Patterns Are Scary!

Happy New Year!

Hello all!

Welcome to my first ever blog!

I started it as my New Years Resolution to try something new that I was too chicken to do before. I have no idea how this works. So, it will definitely be a work in progress. But, as we get further into 2010. I hope to make this an awesome blog, that will inspire other bored housewives, mommies, and whomever is board out of their minds and crafts to keep themselves sane!

And of course I am sick as I start this so my mind is complete mush. Go figure.
