My Sewing Mojo

Well got a bit of sewing done this week. First I wanted to get my scrapbook all in order. My scarpbook is more of pics I find of clothes I like and one day would like to try sometime. I have a friend that works at Walmart in the fabric part. They be throwing away the McCall books and all but, she puts them all aside for me and I get to pick them up. But, instead of me flipping though all those books from time to time I decided to cut out the ones I like and make me a scrapbook. Well I have 2 scrapbooks one for my sewing projects and the other one is for my crochet projects. So here is a start.

Ok I made my daughter Nesa a nice pretty pink and brown shirt. She loves her new shirt she wore it to school today. It didn't take me no time to finish this shirt.:)

Front :)due to my daughter having a liver diease her belly is a little bigger so I had to make a little extra room for her belly for the front. She hates it when her shirts are to tight.

I am not used to making shirts with sleeves because I am always making tank tops and halter tops doing the summers so these shirts was a challenge for me I think I did great. What do you all think?


Ok did quick purse. Didn't take long.

Outside the finish project

I used my sewing machine to make zig zag designs on the outside to give it more color of purple since the inside is purple. I also put a couple of rhimstones on it also.
