Sewing/ Crafting & Sprucing up!! Having Fun!

I bought this white shower curtain [it was just too plain]
I  took a strip of red/white stripe fabric [same as the
curtains I made below]. Made some bias tape, and
sewed a strip around it.. Quick  and easy color!!
The star candle holder was black , I spray painted it.
The little wall hanger ,holding wash cloths, I found
at Salvation Army [50 cents].. Spray painted it!!

Made the simple bathroom curtain, out of
 a red/white stripe  fabric, I added a red/pink floral
topper. Also , spray painted  the basket..

Made a new wreath for the front door.
[can you tell I love the color red??? ha]

The 4'oclocks and begonias are showing their beauty.

Hope your having a  great weekend.. Sewing /relaxing or
just doing what ever makes you happy!!
ps.. Too enlarge photos , just click on photo..

Revised Grainline Scout Tee

                                                    Revised Grainline Scout Tee
                

            When you plan a simple sew [that you have         
            sewed before], that turns into.....a  long
            lasting sew... DO you wonder why???

                            WELL----
            It's not the pattern, it's not the revised
            ideas, it's not your sweet friend [Cathe]
            that sent you this  "sweet,fast,simple sew"         


                            IT  IS ----

            Your's Truly.. hahahaha  You see, I cut out this
            shirt , in  a really cute red fabric.. When I 
            went to cut  my little v in it,  I was too  set 
            on the simple part, and I didn't measure well.   
            I cut the  v off center.. It looked really dumb.
            I used the last little bit of the fabric.. so
            no re-cutting the front.  I was ready to set this 
            sewing tee aside.. But my friend, Cathe, finished 
            her beautiful shirt up and after seeing how pretty,
            it was, I just had to finish mine. check her blog
             to see her beautiful tee.
                    http://amaryllislog.wordpress.com/2014/06/06/i-cried-wolf/
                                         BTW-- Neither of us knew, that  we would both end up doing
                                          a floral blue  fabric.ha

                     
Don't you just love this rustic old
building? It is at Kenny's camp house.
A fun day /night , camping out with
our grandson, Kenny.


Wish you could see the cute cuffs on the sleeves.
 Nice loose fitting , comfortable shirt.. Feel
really bad, that I wanted to cuss it.ha

Grainline Scout Tee [revised]

New Look 6129- Skirt

                                                    New Look 6129- Skirt with pockets

                                   The fabric was from my stash,  A cotton blend with some stretch,
                                   which I found at the flea market a couple years ago.. My intentions
                                   was for this to be a muslin,  But it was so comfortable, I decided
                                    to wear it to town to run errands today.. It will definitely be a
                                   wearable muslin. And I will be making another one. Love the two
                                   front pockets.

                                 Sarah Liz, the  MAGAM challenge, author, made this pattern      
                                  awhile back.. It was so cute, that I went and bought the pattern..
                                  So happy , she shared this pattern.

                                   Happy sewing.

Judy has been Sewing... but not blogging

For my April MAGAM challenge, I made 5 pair
of simple  pull on elastic waist shorts.. I needed
some  simple shorts for working in the garden,
and around the house.. I did finish these the last
of April.. [sorry I have not blogged about them]

Sweet pink and white pin stripe dress , for a
friend's daughter.. Embroidered initial..

Elmo/Cookie Monster Dress for A sweet
little girl.

Angel Costumes

Now this is what has kept me so busy...
I  made 16 of these for  a customer in California.
 They are having  a parade.. and most of  the ones
I made were sizes 2 to 6.. I just bet those are
going to be a  sweet bunch of angels.

Now,  that I have finished all that.. I will be
sewing some summer things for me..
 I did go to Hancock's, during one of the  pattern
sales and pick up some more patterns [ No, I
definitely don't need them. lol]
Happy Sewing.
