I enjoyed reading about you. Your sewing space is so nice! Love it. I’m curious as to what that spiral book in the front of the picture is? Also, what kind of sewing machine do you use?

I made a jumper for my daughter’s 18" dolls. She loved it. I really liked how this dress came together. Good instructions on the pattern, too.

sewnknitmom added the project The Phoebe Bag
I made the Phoebe bag. It’s a free tutorial. The handle looks funny in my picture. But honestly, it turned out really well. It’s nice and stiff. But not too stiff. It feels like it will last awhile…

This was very nice of you to take the time out to explain this technique to me.
sewnknitmom added the project NL Knit Skirt
I love, love this black knit skirt! It’s a New Look pattern. The fit was great too. I want to learn to use a double needle to make the hem. On this skirt I made a rolled hem.
sewnknitmom added the project A knit top that I made.
I haven’t made many knit tops. I do like it, and the fit. The color is nice too. I need to work on making better facings for knit tops. The gathered front adds a nice touch.

This is a Butterick bag pattern. I really enjoyed making this bag. It was lots of fun. Quite a few pieces, but that’s ok. It was a little bigger than I expected. But I love this bag!
