Two posts in one day!


I promised a friend I would hem some curtains for her...then she brought them over and to my horror they were made out of that HORRIBLE-to-sew-on sheer fabric that slides all over your sewing machine and bunches up around the needle...oh my goodness it was a nasty experience. By the time I was finished with them I wanted to pluck my eyeballs out of my own skull. In the midst of it all the necessity of a pin cushion became very urgent. So I stopped to whip up something real quick-like...I was just going to ball up a scrap of fabric or something but then I thought, eh why not make something cute? and so the cupcake was born! (I kinda like cupcakes... just in case you couldn't tell) It's pretty quick and amateur but hey, it made ME happy...and that's saying a lot when you're in the middle of sewing on 100% polyester. ( I am mucho proudo...my hemline turned out straight and pretty...I did a little jig and now I'm going to sleep. I'm pooped!)

that is so cute. :) I did some sewing today too. I am finally learning to use the machine. I made a shower curtain with button holes.

Hey you are one @#%* of a sewer if you can hem poly and get it straight.

That's why they say, "necessity is the mother of invention" and your invention is cute! Hmmm that gives me an idea of something I can make with some vintage tart tins I found!

Very cute! Great job on getting the hem to look good :)
