Needle and Thread.....a new passion!

I am so excited about this new link up that Elizabeth Foss is doing over at In the Heart of My Home! I have followed her blog for quite some time gleaning all kinds of wonderful encouragement for homeschooling! And then I found my knitting passion and followed her to the weekly yarn along where I have met so many wonderful people and found so many amazing projects to knit! And then she turned to sewing and that was something I had not done in a long time.

Now when I was young my Mom who is an accomplished seamstress taught me to sew but I was just not into it. She also taught my daughters to sew and my oldest Emily has made everything from doll clothing, period costumes and skirts. She loves sewing and creating! After seeing some of the cutest patterns on pinterest and other sites I decided I must relearn to sew so that I can make beautiful things for this little baby of mine!

As I decided to do this our older singer machine broke how was I going to sew? So this past week this arrived in the mail! (of course it has sat there all week and I have not even had a chance to look at it!) So hopefully this weekend the creating will begin with my oldest at my side to guide me!

I did get a chance to head to JoAnn's and pick up some fabric! I also picked up the Big But Baby Pants pattern! I love that these pants will fit over Hannah Grace's cloth diapered bum! I also have the sun hat pattern from this site! I also bought some minky and some flannel for a little lovie pattern for that yet!

So no projects to share as of yet.....just dreams of some! And any tutorials or sites you can point me too as I learn this craft would be so helpful! I will only have my Emily to guide me for a couple months before she is heading to Thailand and out onto the mission field. That makes sharing this time with her so very special!!

I can not wait to see others projects! Head over to Elizabeth's blog to join in the fun!!!!

  1. Hi, Elisa! I can't wait to see what you come up with! Those fabrics are pretty choices...don't you love fabric shopping?

    So happy Elizabeth is doing this...

  2. Ooh! I loved stepping into your blog...very pretty. I found you through Elizabeth's Needle and ThREAD. I know you can do this! Especially with your daughter by your side (how cool is that?! Your daughter teaching you) Can't wait to see some big butt baby pants or whatever you decide to make. I've been thinking about buying that pattern myself so it would be interesting to hear a beginner's perspective.

  3. The fabric you choose will make awesome baby gear.

    My ever-going source when I need a tutorial is They englobe everycrafts (every!)

  4. Sometimes the anticipation of the new project is as much fun as doing it ;)
    I have three or four planned, and they involve me working... so I keep putting it off LOL

  5. Have fun with your fabric. I like the pink fabric with texture (can't think of name) so nice baby items.

  6. Loving that stash pile! Here is my sewing link (I also posted several dresses I made on Tuesday):
