I’m teaching myself how to sew. I have a stash of old fabric and clothing that I am repurposing into other useable objects.
I should tell you I don’t follow directions and I don’t use patterns and no, I’ve never had a lesson.
Any of y’all out there old enough to laugh with me on this. Remember the classic Carol Burnett show – the episode where she is doing a spoof on Scarlett O’Hara – to make a dress she wraps the drapes around her – pole and all? I still laugh uproariously when I think about that episode.
Yes indeed, this flamingo fabric used to hang at my kitchen window.
I’m an apron wearing gal. I think I got that from my grandmother. I wear one when I am in the kitchen and while gardening, and working in the studio. No, I don’t play naughty maid dress-up.
Also from the recycle/ repurpose bin, this crazy wild print came from an old blouse that my mother made many years ago. I cut up the fabric and repurposed it into an apron.
and because everybody should have a purse to match their apron
I’m off to see what other projects I can get into.
See ya later, bye
