Who doesn't like a good looking fabric?? One of the things I have been looking forward to doing more in NY is sewing. With no photography business (for now), I have more time on my hands to try some other creative outlets.

Mom taught me how to sew when I was in junior high and I used to make a lot of my own clothes. I usually made skirts and dresses, but I have done an occasional shirt. I don't know if I'm brave enough to sew clothes again without Mom close by, so I'm sticking to sewing decorative things.

With my closest JoAnn fabrics 30 miles away with $10 in bridge tolls, I've had to resort to some other places to buy fabric as well. On-line, or IKEA (which by the way has a great fabric-by-the-yard section).

So here are some sample materials that I've purchased, washed, and will hopefully be creating into some cool things. I'll keep you posted as the projects are done!

The bigger the better. :)

My mom is coming into town for two weeks (Avery's nanny is on vacation) and she's giving me one of her sewing machines so I can FINALLY learn. I have a feeling every throw pillow in the house will have a new look by the time she leaves. Wish me luck!
Happy sewing!
