sewing, yay!


sewing_yay.jpg, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

guess what i got working late friday night {finally}? my sewing machine! which saves me about 130 bucks for a new one. and just think, all i had to do was properly feed the bobbin thread. thank goodness for google. so i stayed up late making all kinds of goodies for myself and my ferocious cousin. {which by the way, i've named a set of hairpins in the store after you, jen!}

so here's a couple of ipod holders i made and a checkbook cover....they're not nearly good enough to sell, so i'll have to keep practicing and maybe someday sewing goods will grace my etsy, until then i need to figure out how to make a pocket tissue holder...

hope everyone had a great easter!

you're so awesome, can't wait for my mom's sewing machine and taking night classes for sewing later. i can make stuff, but i want to learn proper technique. hmmm... i could use a case for my flip phone...

tinker said...

will do! in fact, i've got my eye on some brown/pink fabric....that might just be perfect for you. no?

Wannabe said...

UM, YES! I also want a shirt. I like those ones with the deep v you have listed in your shop but I need a medium. darn it!

no you don't. they're a 'perfect fit', and they're big. i have plenty of room in the xs. trust me. the small would definately fit you. and it's a really nice thin cotton. i bought myself a brown one and i love it. BUT i will keep an eye out for M, L, XL the next time i'm out shirt hunting.

Woo hoo! That is awesome. I love it when you can get things to work and save cash. Even better when you can create pretty things as a result.
