spring tops

Easy! Easy! Easy! I promise!
Only 2 pieces!
Now do I have your attention? I made 2 of these in about 1hr 30mins.
The secret is to cut out the fabric for 2 shirts.  
Pinning and cutting the fabric is the most consuming part... 
so you might as well cut 2 out at the same time.

This is the pattern I used. Its a butterick pattern for a blouse. I followed the instructions for the light blue shirt in the front. And is only 2 pieces! Sew the front to the back and finish off the raw edges.
I love how it has sleeves but you don't need to cut out a separate piece to make the sleeves. 
 I didn't make a sash(belt) for them but I think the orange one needs one. this floral one is just very casual.
So have I inspired you? It's a great way to add to your wardrobe.  
And I also made 2 more!  Well, I made another one with Nicey Jane Fabric and I have to sew up the other one....They come in two's! I will be sure to share those with you as well. (in another post)
So I found this sew a long and I'm going to enter just for fun even though I know my tops are not cute cute (just cute) I just love how simple they are and if you are a beginner sewer then you can do this!
I will be posting to these parties:

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. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. 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

Car seat canopy covers

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!
