This was a very fun project we made last month at my Bernina stores Divas club.

Toothbrush Rollups

These are very easy Pickle Pie toothbrush roll ups . They are in the hoop designs & a great way to use up leftover fabric. For these I dug into my batik. I save every batik scrap as its my favorite fabric !!!!
I'm hosting a cousins weekend this weeknd at our cabin up north . 

Thanks Rhonda Buss for featuring my blog on Wednesday Showcase . It was a thrill & honor to be featured !

I Did It ! Ready to Wear Fast 2014

  I Did It !! I made it through the 2014 Ready to Wear Fast without buying new clothes . 

While I didn't make as many clothing items  as I thought I would , I did make 7 tops , a couture dress, 15 items for granddaughter , 170 baby items for my charity sewing group, 10 snap bags ( gifts) , 12 pumpkin coasters( gifts) 2 Halloween table toppers , 3 crossover bags (gifts) 2 batik totes , 3quilts ( baby charity ) 2 zipper project bags ,2 crocheted afghans  for gifts , crocheted 3 afghans for charity .

It really does help to add it all up . You realize that you did sew more than you thought . 
I started this blog a year ago to document my sewing & I'm so glad I did. 
I'm so glad I took on the RTW fast. It was nice to have a personal challenge .
I know it has been viewed many times & not many people comment - except my # 1 follower -Thx N 😄😄😄😄

While I will continue sewing for myself , I'm not going to be as strict this year with a RTW fast .
I joined the Make A Garment A Month group this year just to shake it up . 
I have lots of Craftsy classes lined up, new patters. & of course lots of fabric added to my stash last year . 

Sewing Goals - 

1. Learn to fit patterns more accurately .
2. Attempt to make pants 
3. Sew a cardigan 
4. Finish the dress & skirt I started in 2014 
5. Make lots of fun stuff for Granddaughter
6. Learn more accuracy in sewing !
7. More Charity Sewing .
8. Have Fun !
