Well wanted to do this post early even though my bday isn't until Friday but, who says I can't start start having fun now. :)
Well Happy Bday to me. I am now 28 as of Friday. WOW how time flys by. I will be mainly not doing to much on my bday going to Green Bay for house hunting again and going out to eat and to the movies nothing to jump up and down about. I guess the older we get it's just another day.
Also on the 18th will be my Blogoversary that means I will now have blogged in this blog for 2 full years and on to my third year WOW, can't believe I had this blog so long. Can't believe I kept up with it so long. Amazing, I guess if it wasn't for having blogging friends, online I probably would have given it up.
All you ladies that I visit from time to time and that visits me thanks for coming by seeing and reading all about my life and hobbies. Sometime I know I may bore you all lol but, sorry at times don't have much to talk about or craft about.
But, wanted to do a Blogoversary give away.
I want to take this dress here and do a recon/recyle for the winner.
I want to make a purse so for those that want to join in on the contest then come on join in.
I will do the drawning well have Nesa take the name out of a hat on Monday and name the winner on Tuesday and then later next week I will have a picture of the purse. Have to give me a bit of time sine I will be out of time for 4 days so if you have a blog I will try to contract you to get your information so I can mail off your purse.
So who's in.
Just say you in and on your name goes into the hat. I was going to do the number game but, I wanted to get my girls involve.
Nesa is at that stage where she want to write everything so thought this would be nice for her to wrote everyones name on a piece of paper and throw it in a hat.:)
Ok now on with my sewing.
I did my sister a small baby bag she wanted a small one, one that isn't to big for one of those quick days where she don't need to carry alot of stuff so I came up with this bag.
She picked the fabric.
Outside pocket of bag with some decor on it.
Inside of bag you can see the 4 pockets on the inside of the bag.
Cute huh? She liked it.:)
I have to pat myself on the back for this. I made me a pair of wide leg pants out of double knit fabric.
One reason why I am so proud of myself because it was my first attempt at so many things.
1. My first time putting a zipper into pants. I always put zippers in make of dress or skirts for my girls clothes but, never in the inseam of pants.
2. My first time doing side hip pockets on pants.
So while sewing my pants together I was just smiling at myself at how great they come out.
The pattern I used for these pants are Simpicity 4366
Here go the front.
Oh by the way you all may remember that shirt. I made that shirt a couple of months ago just never worn it because I never had brown pants to go with it. So when I brought this fabric this is what I thought about making these pants for this shirt.

Here go a close up on the buttons on the back pocket.

Pattern Description: Wide Leg Pants (Simplicity 4366)
Pattern Sizing: plus size 22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Somewhat, I made my pants legs wider then it asked for.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yep ver easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I didn't have anything I didn't like about the pattern.
Fabric Used: Brown Double Knit, used a 7 inch carmel zipper and 3 3/4 buttons. The pattern asked for 3 1/2 buttons.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I made one change the the pattern sized I used was a 22 but, for the pocket part of the pattern I used the size 16 I didn't want my pocket to be to big and overlaping.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would try this pattern again with denim. I would recommend it.
Conclusion: I liked how it came out.
Ok that's the end of my sewing projects. No crocheting to report.
Ever since I finish my pants I have got inspired to do a lot of more sewing so here is a few of the patterns of somethings I would like to try out.:)
Oh by the way I change the style of my blog since it is a new year for my blog thought I would give it a little spice.
Thanks for visiting my blog everyone, everyone have a great week and weekend take care:)
