I am Sew Enjoying my Long Weekend

Here is my weekend project. I felt like sewing something, but I am never sure what I am going to sew until I get to the fabric store, and due to the local craft store's sparse fabric selection it is always a mystery as to whether or not I will make anything at all. I was looking, looking, looking and I wasn't really pleased with anything I saw--nothing worth spending my money on. I decided to check out the bargain wall since I wasn't feeling like spending a whole lot of money. I found this fabric. It was cheap (only cost me about $7 to make) and it wasn't shouting super cute, but sometimes I like the challenge of taking mediocre fabric and making it into something cute. When Nathan saw the fabric in the bag we was like, "What? You making a Kilt?" haha...very funny. Well, the final project was this cute blazer, which I think is kinda Gossip Girl-esque. The patern below is the sewing pattern I used. The plaid version is the one I made, and as you will see, there is also a little tie that can be tied around the waist as an option.

I have another whole day off tomorrow as well...maybe I will sew something else...I did buy this cute skirt pattern...


  1. That is cute! I'm impressed. Plus, it's perfect for St. Patty's Day :)

  2. I love what you made it's so cute. I cant wait to see your skirt you will make. How are you guys doing ? I hope your doing well. Just wanted to say hi :)

  3. I'm always so impressed by what you create! Nice work. You actually inspired me... I'm about to head over to my grandma's to sew a skirt! She's going to help me brush up on my sewing skills. :) Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. So cute! And plaid is very "in" right now. I think it's perfect!

  5. You have become a great seamstress! It takes alot of talent to see a piece of material and imagine how it might look as a dress or blouse.
