First Attempt, now I'm ADDICTED!!

Well after some encouragement from two great friends, Sara & Marissa, I decided to make James' crib bedding. Yes, I know he is 7 months but I had yet to buy any for the fact that I couldn't really find one that I loved and they are all so expensive! The girls helped me pick out some fabric after giving them an idea of what I wanted, then some late nights at Sara's it was done!!! It is sooo exciting because I have always considered myself a sewing reject, then with the left over material and a boost in confidence and more help from Marissa & Sara I made an apron!

I am now officially ADDICTED!! I love finding fabrics and looking at sewing machines online, Jo Ann's has also been added to the list of stores that I have to stay away from so as not to spend millions! All I have to say is, for those of you out there that feel intimidated by the whole thing, take it from me, find a friend or make a friend that sews and ask for help and in no time you will be a "Sewing Queen"!!!!!

I L-O-V-E love the way that apron turned out! And the bedding!...I am super impressed with how clean and straight the sewing lines are! Amazing job!

Good Job! I love it too! Wanna do Talans for me? He is 1 1/2 years old... and I still dont have his bedding! You did a really good job!

WAY cute, the apron and the bedding!! I do like to pull out the sewing machine when I get time. It's relaxing to me, but it rarely ever happens. I've been saving old jeans forever now to make a denim quilt. We will attempt that soon though, I'm gettin' the bug!

I'm so jealous! I paid WAY too much at pottery barn kids, and I still wasn't thrilled with it. Yours looks SO nice. Maybe I'll take a class before baby number 2!? :)

Love it! Amazing. I consider myself a sewing reject as well, but I'll do it anyway. Usually all of my projects have at least one major flaw, but oh well! :)

I am impressed!!! Way to go! I enjoy a sewing project every now and then too... but I stay far, far away from clothes. Tried that once, and it was quite the laugh. You must have some natural ability there... is there a sewing gene? Hmmm.

Great job, that's not such a bad thing to be addicted to. I am crafy impaired!
