With the 4th of July on a Sunday this year I couldn't resist but to make some patriotic church clothes. For those of you interested, the tutorial for Paige's ruffle flag shirt is here. You can download the pattern for her sash here. The boys tie pattern was purchased here and can be instantly downloaded. For those of you with basic sewing skills the tie was a pretty simple project. I was pleasantly surprised how quick a project it was and how nice the finished product is. I'm already dreaming of the next holiday I can make ties for.
There is something inside of me that is constantly yelling "create" and sewing has been my way of providing the creative fix. I love taking pieces of beautiful fabric and cutting and piecing and sewing them together to create something useful and beautiful. There is something very satisfying in experimenting and stretching and stepping out of my box. I love to sew and hope that this simple blog will inspire you to create something of your own.
