Made by Me

Sewing is something I have always loved to do, and thanks to some wonderful internet inspiration, I have recently found myself spending some of my free time in front of my sewing machines.  Not too long ago, I did a Dress of the Month project that I started in July of 2013, where I sewed a different dress each month for a year, and blogged about it.  I had so much fun and learned a lot in that year of dressmaking, that I wasn’t ready to put my sewing stuff away.

I still have plenty of unused patterns and a slightly smaller material stash – which I am enjoying building back up – so my sewing has continued over here on the blog.  In fact, I am dedicating my Monday posts to my Me-Mades when I have something completed to show and tell.  I am very partial to dresses, but maybe it’s time to get some new shirts added to my wardrobe since I’m not doing well finding them while out shopping.  It is great to be able to make something that you will wear!

Here are some of the things that I have made so far, and no doubt there will be plenty more to come.  I would greatly appreciate any and all feedback, and thanks for taking the time to check out my projects.  Just click on the photo to be taken to the original post.

    1. Thanks! Yes, the Thursday Thrift event is still running. I have some participation here and there, and I’d love to have you join in. I post this on the first and third Thursday of the month and if you link to my site, or tag your post #ThursdayThrift, I’ll add your link in my post. Hope to see you then. 🙂

      1. Hmmm…. I am not so much into thrifting clothing, but thrifted and vintage fabric is definitely my thing. If I sew something out of thrifted fabric, will that do? 🙂 Thanks 🙂

        1. Absolutely – that would be wonderful! I keep thinking that thrifting for fabric is something I should do. I sometimes find some great material in an otherwise not so great item of clothing.
          You are welcome.

Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
