See these dresses?
Nora was outgrowing her shirts and I couldn’t find any cute..cheap…dresses for her, so I used leftover fabric to make these scrap dresses!
I also made the little fabric braided necklaces too…because girls just love accessories!
I thought about selling these on ETSY…
What? You’d be interested in them?
It wont be happening anytime soon because my sewing machine got hungry and ate the latest dress! I don’t know what went wrong…I cleaned and oiled and the dang thing is definitely upset about something….and it wont tell me what the heck it is!!! I really hate this ugly game of ‘I’ll do something ridiculous and you try to guess what it is’…honest to goodness my free time is slim to none around here and pleading with a machine is not really how I’d like to spend it! I’m wondering now if it’s better…cheaper…to buy a new one versus bringing this one in for repair? It is a Brother 1520 and only a few years old, but I’ve read that repair can cost around $50, nearly half what a new one would cost…and I’ve also read that this happens quite often on these lower priced machines! UGH! I just wanted to be able to make things for Nora and small projects for the home…why can’t a machine, whose sole purpose it is to sew, sew??? It’s not really asking too much is it?
Oh well, I’m sure I’ll figure something out!
I’m still giddy I was actually able to sew something that is wearable!
