This sweet skirt and tutorial took me right back to my 7th grade home economics class--even the fabric is similar to the one I made. If I could, I'd create one of these little lovelies for every day of the week.
Cute top + simple wrap skirt = the perfect summer uniform.
Alas, I've since lost what minimal sewing knowledge I had back then. One of my summer goals, however, is to get off my bum and try my hand at some simple projects using this. In preparation, I've been stalking a handful of sewing blogs and have been drooling over the inspiration found on this week's featured blog--Spool--including this amazing bird mobile.
So many possibilities...a baby nursery, a playroom, or your craft room (what a great way to repurpose and show off cute, leftover fabric scraps).
The birds can be handsewn using this free pattern. Create a batch for baby shower favors or stuff them with a dense filler to make some adorable book-ends. And if you're really feeling ambitious, grab a few branches and some eye-hooks and create your very own custom mobile.
Do any of you readers have a favorite sewing blog/site...I'd love for you to share it with us.
