Hi there! This blog (and,therefore, this post) has recently moved to http://mymessymanger.blogspot.com.
Click here to read all about the awesome Elvis apron I made.
Have a great day!
Are you constantly getting little threads and scraps everywhere when you sew? Check out this baby:
Talk about a great idea! Rebecca at MellebugandMe recently posted this great tutorial on how to make one for yourself, and if I can tear myself away from sewing skirts (and my Mom’s mystery belated Mother’s Day gift), then it is going to be one of my next projects. It’s especially handy when you have to sew at the kitchen table like I do, and your husband complains about the threads everywhere.
Yup, I finished my second skirt over the weekend.
I made it the same way I made my first skirt (copied a skirt I already had and loved). This one was a lot more difficult, especially the elastic parts on the sides. Whew! What a pain! But it was definitely worth it because I love how casual and fun the design of this skirt is. Even as difficult as it was to make, I would seriously consider making 100 more of this skirt in different prints and colors… that’s how much I love wearing it!
I have to give a big shout-out to Mrs. Gentry and the ladies who help her in the free sewing class on campus at the seminary. They not only taught me to sew, but there is no way I could have figured out that elastic waistband without them!
And trust me, I definitely don’t wear it out in public with a tucked-in grey T-shirt.
(Sorry for the poor quality pictures again. It’s just so much easier to take the picture with my phone and send it to my email than it is to find my camera, take the picture, hook it up to the computer, upload the picture to my computer, and send it to my email)
What in the world?? Is that a thong on a bra? No, my friend. It’s a Winkee!
I found this hilarious website today skimming the interwebs. Really, once you get past giggling over the way it looks, it’s a pretty good concept (although Erin at A Dress A Day thinks it should have a hidden pocket… and I can’t say I diasgree). Basically, it clips to any bra as an alternative to wearing a camisole under low-cut shirts.
I love that on the How It Works page, it says that, among other things, the Winkee makes men more productive. They also remind you that the Winkee does not cure the common cold. These ladies obviously have a sense of humor!
What do you think? Wardrobe-saving solution or funny-looking flop? I think I’m tempted to get (or sew) one for myself!
