Make, Make, Make, Sew, Sew, Sew

Make, Make, Make, Sew, Sew, Sew / Let's all sew things! / Let's all sew things!

(to the tune of "Shake Your Groove Thing" if you couldn't tell)

Sorry for the cheese.

I have been really inspired to sew and work on projects. Last weekend, my sunglasses broke and I picked up a replacement pair and wanted to make sure they stayed safe in my wasteland of a purse. I came home and immediately started googling sunglasses case tutorials.

I ended up using this tutorial with slight modifications. I made my case a little bigger and sewed on my velcro rather than using iron-on velcro.


TA DA! It was really easy!

I want to work on more projects in the upcoming weeks:
  • Sprocket pillows - so cute and so many possibilities with different fabrics
  • Chevron tote bag - this is a good looking tote bag!!
  • and this week I made more dresses! It is the easiest project and so rewarding! I love being able to make my own clothes even though I can't sew from a pattern.
What are your favorite, easy-peasy sewing projects? I need more sewing in my life!

  3. Aww...super-cute, Jamie! I love to sew but don't do it often enough. I got out the machine the other day to make a flag banner for my booth when I decided that it might be a TAD expensive to buy a 15-foot one on Etsy.

  4. Thanks! Buying banners is shockingly expensive!!
