I Went Sewing, I'm a Sewer, I Sew . . .

Remember that brown dress I got for my birthday? (see picture in last post) I decided it was a tad too short when I sat down, so I added 3 inches to it. MYSELF. FIRST TRY. Crazy, right?






And, as long as we're on the subject of sewing, here's a pillow case I made. I bought a travel-sized pillow for Sophie, and wouldn't you know it, couldn't find a travel pillow sized case, so I made it.







And finally, while this didn't involve actual sewing (just a staple gun for this one), I turned the toy box into a toy box-slash-bench. Padded and everything.

way to preserve your modesty by adding a few extra inches of fabric... i would've been lazy and lowered my standards.
