Sewing has been a very handy skill for me to have. I make things I need, things my family needs, and I often sew gifts for others. It has been a wonderful and satisfying outlet for my creativity that has also blessed and brought joy to others. It helps me to save money as I often need to spend very little on the projects I make; I look for ways to reuse and recycle fabric. I put together 20 projects for you from my Wednesday link parties. Some require a sewing machine and some don't, some are easy, some are not. I'm sure you can find something you would like to make for yourself!
Look please... at this beautiful pillow! That is all hand stitched beading and quilting work you are looking at! I think I drooled at little when I first saw it because I sat at my computer with my mouth open for so long! It takes talent, skill and amazing patience to accomplish such a masterpiece, what an artist. You will find out more about this pillow and see more beautiful photos of it and other things at Ivy, Phyllis and Me.
What a great idea this is? AND simple too! fix those holey pants and perhaps ones that are too short. Check it out at Callie's Crafts.
