Feeling rather crafty at the moment...

Due to various things, I'm feeling rather crafty at the moment. Said various things would be:
  • The absolutely lovely swathes of couture that I have seen lately!
  • Inspiring posts from Nicki and Libby, Sitara, and Rose, just to name a few.
  • A recent, early spring photo shoot has also gotten me in the artistic mood. I wish I could share the pictures with you, since I think they turned out pretty good, but they're on my private blog and I'm too lazy to upload them all to here as well.
  • I've got quite a lot of time on my hands. Perfect for starting big projects!
Well, because of all this, I'm in the mood for sewing something. Now, just a heads up, I cannot sew to save my life. I can somewhat stitch by hand, and I barely know how to operate a sewing machine. The one mildly successful attempt at sewing can be seen here. To this day, I'm not quite sure how that turned out so well, haha!

Anyways, despite all this, I thought I would try my hand at sewing and become one of many people to use the Liberty Jane patterns. I have some lovely, dark military green knit cotton, and some mint green/blue as well, so I will be making some t-shirts (hopefully) tonight. It's some really nice fabric, so I hope I don't totally butcher it.

So, this is my project for tonight. It may possibly take longer than that, though. If I can even get a shirt made that looks like a pillow case with sleeves, I'll be thrilled. So, though the shirts may look horrid, humor me :)

Be prepared for a post showing off my mediocre talent as a seamstress in the near future.

PS: Thank you so much to my 51 (update, make that 52!) followers, and everyone who comments/reads the blog! You guys are the best. :)


  1. Oh, I'm no pro sewer either. I have killed many things with my attempt at sewing. lol.

  2. Good luck!
    I love feeling "artsy", but usually when I do its at night when I can't take any good photos without ugly artificial light, or I have no good supplies. Or ideas, for that matter. xD

  3. The material you're going to use sounds really pretty! I'm sure your not as bad a seamstress as I am, though. I tried sewing a dress once that turned out horridly, even with the help of my grandma, who is a really good sewer!
    Good luck with your shirt-making and please post pictures of them when they're done! :) :) :)


  4. I can't seem to sew either. :P I'm, by all means, terrible. Good luck on your sewing.I usually don't try sewing. I stick with drawing and painting. Which reminds that I must fix up some old canvases! Well good post..

  5. Srujana can't sew either. She's horrible. Good luck sewing! Crocheting is easier for me, and I like it. I do it lots for fun. Nice post!

  6. You are inspiring me to start sewing a dress like that! This is Lola Bean and I was wondering if you could check out my contest- it's my first one. Thanks!
