Hey everybody!  Cheesy

It's been quite a while since I posted a craft here  Smiley

Since the summer has been a bit on the quiet side for me, so I have been feeling creative once more. Sadly, I parted ways with my sewing machine after classes ended (aka my sister dragged it to storage with her)  Embarrassed

Somehow it doesn't stop me from making things I love! So I decided to handsew everything! Boy, have I learned to appreciate my sewing machine XD

1. Summer Circle Skirt:

My first official summer craft (I have just been waiting til I did something else to post XD)!!! A simple circle skirt made from a yellow fabric decorated with bumble bees and lady bugs and flowers! I added some lining that has lace sewn to the bottom of it  Grin <3 I absolutely love it! Sadly, you cannot see my hair accessory I cheekily made.

Close up of the pin I sewn! I used a bit of scrap fabric, lace, and a wooden button to make a yo-yo for my hair  Wink (OMGSH. my eye looks so creepy here!!!  Shocked )

2. Fall Pinafore:

I sewed this from some free fabric my aunt gave me randomly one day. It's a nice olive corduroy. Sorry if it looks a bit wrinkled in the photo, I didn't iron the pinafore before  Embarrassed I used a lovely tutorial I found here: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=25035282&blogID=459748466 

And of course a matching headband (It's a waste of fabric not to make one  Cheesy)

Thanks for viewing! Comments & criticism are always appreciated!!!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

You made some cute stuff. Way to have the patience to hand sew!

i love the circle skirt, i'm "banned" to hand-sewing too because my machine kicked the bucket a few months ago and still no money to buy a new one... being around here doesn't make it better, even worse:P

PS: i love your orange shoes on the first pic ^^
