I've got the bug...

The sewing bug!

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to learn how to sew. I completed a couple of easy projects early in the year, but haven't really touched my sewing machine much. Well, the Rosebuds' Halloween costumes brought be back behind my machine. Miss H and Lil B are going as Thing 1 and Thing 2 (from The Cat in the Hat) and I decided to sew these cute little blue sunhats to simulate the Things' blue hair.


I found the free pattern at my new favorite sewing/crafting blog Prudent Baby. They have the cutest ideas and their tutorials are so easy to follow. {Seriously, if this non-Martha Stewart can understand and follow their directions, you can too!}

So now I have the bug. I am itching to start a new sewing project and I have a few ideas for gifts I can make for Christmas. I am so excited to have actually created something with my two hands. It is a great feeling!

Right before Christmas is the perfect time to get the bug!

It is a good feeling! I don't have a fabric store in my town anymore which makes me very sad!

Cute! Unfortunately, I can hardly sew on a button, let alone make something like that!!

I LOVE the Thing 1 and 2 idea! I took my first sewing class in May, and haven't gotten it back out until I had to hem Kate's Jessie costume pants.

So cute! I can't wait to see what else you make. :)
