I've never sewed anything other than a pillow before but my almost-mother-in-law is pulling out her sewing machine for me to use!  I am so excited.  What should I make?!?  I saw the most beautiful fabric with what looks like black lace on it that I've decided will be a tank top.  And then I saw all of these suit-like materials in pinstripes and tweeds.  I'd like to make these into bags or skirts or something.  Oh please give me ideas on projects I can do (and wear!).

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/

the jordy bag had become a local favorite. too fun and quite an easy first project. very rewarding.

as for clothes hmm. not as sure. reconstructing other things is fun and easy on the $$$ Smiley just go thrifty shopping and pick up random things you like and think would make cool other things or are in need of some customization.. check the reconstructed clothing posts. lots of cool ideas there.

also you could just head over to your local fabric store. and i know there are some patterns by simplicity (don't be offended by the next part) Sewing for Dummies. they are pretty basic patterns and will give good instructions at starting from the basics. also look for other ones that say easy. and go from there.

a pointer though. i made a bag from a pattern and it took forever and then i made a jordy and was more pleased because of the lack of silly patterns to follow and excited at how fast it all went together

so yeah i rambled too much.Tongue hope i was at least of some help Smiley
