We had a wonderful long Thanksgiving weekend! On Saturday and Sunday my daughter woke up and was happy when she realized she had an extra day off and didn't have school. She explained that she loves school but loves spending days with the whole family even better...and here we are all together :)So my new mission is teaching myself how to sew. I have no skill at all!!! I wish I did and I keep trying but my projects are not going so well. I wanted to make pillowcase dresses for my nieces which everyone says are so easy, but they came out very boxy and not the correct size even after following a pattern. Now I'm on to trying to make them each a tote bag. They were often times listed under kids sewing projects. So wish me luck. I'll post pictures when there done. Unless I'm too embarrassed. If anyone has sewing ideas for beginners, I'd love to hear them. Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving too!

There's probably a sewing class you could take just for the basics. Jo-anne's may offer one. Good luck and can't wait to see how all your projects turn out! :O)

Oh, I'd love to join you in your new venture. I've always longed to be a seamstress and I imagine the adorable clothes and decor I could make!

Although I do have a machine, I've never quite worked up the ambition to learn much. Now my oldest is into American Girls and wants tons of outfits and such (Holy crap, that stuff is expensive!) so I'm finding some motivation to learn to sew our own!

I'll keep my look out on for some sewing sites, and please post your sewing ventures! Don't be shy! :)

Cute family photo!

Good luck with the sewing! I know how to do it, but I'm not terribly good or innovative. One day, I hope...
