Red Dirt Farm

Ramblings and Photos from a Country Life

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.

    1. It is rather laughable isn’t it, especially since I am the last person in this world worried about fashion! Thanks for stopping in.

      1. Fashion ain’t my thang, either. I’m not even big on spending much money on clothes. Just recently bought 4 new pairs of canvas flats for gardening but ONLY because they were on sale. Would rather have plants than clothes.
