Spring Top

Since the pattern I used was altered a bit I decided to enter this into the :

I love her website, if you are into making clothes or altering them, recycling...whatever floats your boat, check out her website.  Oh and she is turning this into a contest so make sure you enter!!

 You wouldn't believe this top cost me $1.50 to make...or it could have been less. The fabric was on sale for $1.00/yd
The pattern I used is Simplicity 2892. I just altered the straps and added ruffles. I like this alot because you can wear it more casual like above

My inspiration came from this shirt that I found at Nordstrom:
However this shirt was over $200!! does it get you a raise at work? Or promise a life full of happiness? I don't know why it would be so much?

Anywho, on the nordstrom top it  has tiny little pom poms hanging off the ruffle, I thought that would be so cute but I couldn't find mini pom poms at the local quilt shops so I couldn't add that detail. But I like how cute it looks with the belt!

Then you can just add a cardigan or a shrug to wear it to work. I love that I can sew!!
People without a sewing machine have no idea what they are missing out on! LOL
Thanks for looking!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married.

Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
