Sewing has become one of the most pleasing ways for me to use my free time. Together with my lovely sewing machine, which had been my grandmother's, I have been teaching myself to sew. Here are some of my more successful projects.

I enjoy making and wearing skirts: they are easy, pretty, and fun!
Shirts are more tricky, but once I get them down I can make all my clothes!

tote bag
Accessories and toys are fun to sew, and usually don't take too long.
Comforter Cover
Household things: pillows, blankets, placemats, et cetera.

Upcycled T-Shirts
T-shirt skirt
Projects from old T-shirts — they are one of my biggest fabric sources.
Legs & Feet
I have sewn some things for legs and feet, like pants and rain boots.

Please contact me if you are interested in the specifics of how any of these items were created.
