Summer Sewing List

I've been working on my list of summer projects!!

A fun elastic skirt using this tutorial.

My first time making pockets! Much easier than I anticipated and it just adds fun I think.

Fun fabric ring using this tutorial.

And what do you need in MS summer heat? A scrappy headband using this!

More projects to come!!

Richmont Graduate University

This is where were headed in July!

There are about 80 students at the Chattanooga campus and the school is in this old church that has been completely re-done on the inside. We're getting excited!


I love the idea of sewing.
I love looking at sewing books.
I love reading sewing blogs.
I love coming up with great projects.
I love buying cheap shirts and imagining them as cute J. Crew designs.
I love bookmarking cute ideas.
I even love buying great fabric.

But I get scared to death of actually cutting fabric and attempting to put it back together into something cute with my basic, beginner sewing skills.

So this summer I've made a sewing list and I'm going to actually do it.

What's the worst that can happen? I already use my seam ripper more than my sewing machine :)

Here are a few projects I've attempted...

I love owls. I think they are just precious! This one is from little miss blue blog.

Bad picture. Fun baby headband made from little baby tights.

Is there anything cuter than these ruffle-butt onesies that are all over the blog world now? I think not.

I love this tutorial from Happy Together of the Placemat Clutch.

I'm off to work on my list...

Moving next month with no job and no place to live?
I think this verse was written for me...

This week I bought cowboy boots and some orange push-up pops

which made my think of my grandfather because he always had boots on and orange push-pops in the freezer. We spent many summers picking corn, bottle feeding baby calves, and eating 'spit-ems,' (I have no idea what their real name is...)
Great summertime memories.

And on that note...

Here's James and his sweet grandfather who James was named after

'The righteous man leads a blameless life, blessed are his children after him' Prov 20:7
