What if Wednesday: Learning to Sew


Hello lovlies!  I’m so excited about today’s What if Wednesday.  After my wonderful weekend visit to CityCraft, I’m ready to finally make the leap to learn to sew.  My mom has signed up to teach me – my first project will be an apron from this Amy Butler book.  Simple, straight lines, nothing too complicated to start with.  Stay tuned for pics of the actual project…for now – enjoy these lovely fabrics I’m considering for the apron!  If it turns out well, what a great handmade gift for the holidays.

Fabrics:  Amy Butler Sunset, Amy Butler Grey Floating Buds, Michael Miller Large Flower Doodle, Michael Miller Ta Dot, Amy Butler Mixed Fabrics.
