Happily Sewing

A few weeks ago I got fed up with how messy my kitchen was so I took all my sewing stuff and hid it away.

My kitchen was clean! I enjoyed it for several weeks.

Then the other day I told my husband that I missed sewing. Why would I give up something that makes ME happy?

With a little organization I can have a clean kitchen and keep sewing. Plus my husband has given me a little space in his office to store my plastic bins

I've decided to start sewing the same dress pattern with different variations until I can do it in my sleep. I have a ton of ideas rolling around in my head but can't seem to keep up with them and I never get anything started let alone finished. If I keep it simple I can get projects done and post on my Etsy store.

Remember this little dress:
A friend of mine bought it for her little girl. It's the same pattern as the newest dress up on my Etsy. You will be seeing it again very soon!

When I started my store I didn't want it to become a "have to". I want to keep it a "want to". I love matching a vintage fabric, an old dress or a skirt with a cute pattern and make it my own.

That pink and white flowered dress is so cute it makes me wish I had someone to put it on!
