Here is a little peek into my "Things to Sew" folder.  Whenever I see something inspiring that makes me think, "hey, I could make that", I just plop it into this folder.  But let's be honest, some of these may be a little ambitious....

love the fabric, love the color, love the bow

I have some extra striped fabric that would be perfect for this

fun twist on a pencil skirt


This one looks fairly simple, and the best part about it is the back.  I can just use the shirring technique, and that means NO zipper!

On a side note, I made a skirt this weekend that turned out absolutley craptastic.  I'm going to have to spend a lot of quality time with my seam ripper if I am going to save this skirt. 


  1. I too have a date with the seam ripper...or maybe scissors! I'm not sure if mine is doable! I looove the first dress:-)

  2. I really need to organize my sewing to-do list - I'm all over the place! I do absolutely love the purple one - very cute!

  3. Thats a great idea for the folder, I too walk through stores and say " I can make that" to many things I see. I guess its part of being creative!

  4. Those are all so cute... the second one is my fav. If you ever want to borrow the skirt I wore on Sunday I bet you could easily use it as a pattern to create one like it. It's a wrap around so I think it would be pretty easy and it doesn't have a zipper either. ;) Just let me know because I would seriously be happy to lend it to you and see what you create. = )
