sewing

wearing curtains

I’m teaching myself how to sew.  I have a stash of old fabric and clothing that I am repurposing into other useable objects.

  I should tell you I don’t follow directions and I don’t use patterns and no, I’ve never had a lesson.

    Any of y’all out there old enough to laugh with me on this.  Remember the classic Carol Burnett show –  the episode where she is doing a spoof on Scarlett O’Hara – to make a dress  she wraps the drapes around her – pole and all?  I still laugh uproariously when I think about that episode.

Yes indeed, this flamingo fabric used to hang at my kitchen window.

I’m an apron wearing gal.  I think I got that from my grandmother.  I wear one when I am in the kitchen and while gardening, and working in the studio. No, I don’t play naughty maid dress-up.

Also from the recycle/ repurpose bin, this crazy wild print came from an old blouse that my mother made many years ago.  I cut up the fabric and repurposed it into an apron.

I’m off to see what other projects I can get into.

See ya later, bye
