Salvation Army Chic

It turns out sewing is a somewhat costly past time to pick up. It also turns out that we are in recession. Should I let a little thing like that deter me from what I’ve set my mind to? Absolutely not!

I figure if Scarlett O’Hara can make it work so can I!!!!

So with a little resourcefullness I have solved the problem:

100_2033Thanks to a little Gone with the Wind Inspiration I am now stocked up on fabric…otherwise known as bedsheets, table clothes, and curtains for less than $10 bucks!

Armed with my new book and all this fabric I’m really ready to get rolling!

  1. I don’t know how you were able to cut and paste my picture so extremely good, to make it look like “I” was sewing. I am super duper impressed. lol

  2. That’s hilarious! I can totally see Russ trying to sew! I bet he was all into it! Now you guys can teach me how to sew! I’ve been wanting to learn for a while and I love Amy Butler’s fabrics, patterns, etc…to bad it all costs so much! Good for you for being so resourceful!

    Can’t wait to see you in a couple of days!

  3. I am really impressed! First, that you want to sew (it’s seems like a lost skill now-a-days). Second, that Russ is also open to learn. And third, the two llittle dresses you made for Elisabeth were so cute…they looked awesome for your beginning projects! Way to go.
