Brace yourselves


I have been totally channeling Martha Stewart lately (not the criminal Martha). I whipped out my sewing machine the other day. It has pretty much been in the box since the day I bought it. The last time I sewed it was in Mrs. Tolbert's Home Ec class in the 8th grade. We sewed shirts. I was so pumped about the shirt that I made until I realized the shirt I made was almost identical to the shirts the employees at McDonalds wore. That shirt went straight to our trunk-o-costumes (along with my GOLD Homecoming dress).

At last I decided to give this whole "homemaking thing-a-ma-jig" another attempt. I am pretty delighted with myself. I made this cute pillow for the nursery. YUP....I did. YA ME!

Wow! That is so pretty! Did you use a pattern or is this an original!? Yeah you!!

That is impressive. I need to quit farting around with these stupid quilts and make something useful.

I also love it when I am good at everything I do even if I haven't done it since 8th grade . . . oh wait, that's never happened to me. Geez Brittni! Please tell me that you at least swore at the sewing machine a few times!

Super cute! You could sell those babies. Love it!

Don't lie, you still have the shirt and the gold dress. Like you would ever get rid of those. It's nothing to be ashamed of. Maybe you can sew a new outfit out of them....oh the possibilities! You sure have come a long way since you thought you could make shorts by cutting two slits up a skirt and sewing them together. I couldn't be more proud. ;)

Way Cute! And that shorts idea Jamie said you've got up in that head of yours sounds like a great idea! Have you tried it?

I LOVE THE PILLOW!

It's funny that you mention our Home Ec class. I was just telling someone yesterday that the only F I ever got was on a skirt in Home Ec. lol! Your pillow looks great! I don't think I will be making one anytime soon.
