Creative Space Thursday


I've had this fabric sitting in my stash since May. I love the weight and bold print but wasn't sure if I wanted a dress or a skirt.


I decided on the skirt. I followed the directions and messed it up! The pleats are wrong but I like the way the turned out. I love those flat flower pins. I discovered those at a quilting workshop last fall. They are longer than normal pins and they lay flat which is great when you're trying to mark the fabric.

I watched a youtube video on invisible zipper installation and managed to put it in backwards. So there was ripping involved.

Eventually I got it all together. I love how it fits and how it feels. I wish I had made it earlier this year!

The pillows I made my daughter-in-law are now on her couch. You can see them here
As always please check out Kootoyoo for more fun creative spaces this week.

  3. I love that fabric. It would make an awesome skirt. I haven't sewed clothes for myself since my kids were born but I'm thinking of getting back to it since I don't like how anything fits anymore.

    BTW, LOVED (!!!!) Hearts on the Road! I'll write a review of it soon.

  5. Thank you Jen! I'm glad you liked the book. A review would be great, but it still isn't out at the online bookstores. Not until January.

    The skirt turned out fabulous. I love, love, love it!
    Get out that machine and give it a try. Skirts are easy. :)

  6. I love this. I used to sew all the time when I was a stay at home mom. I made all my daughter's clothes and matching ones for her dolls.
