Sew Much Better

My foray into sewing is showing vast improvement!  It has required all the tenacity I can muster and a whole lot of four letter words.....but here are a few pics to highlight my success story. 

This is my first pattern sewn dress...boy was that a learning experience!

Next up is a darling sundress based on this tutorial from Lil Blue Boo. I was using up my scrap fabric and this is the result.

Here is my skirt trifecta all sewn with the beautifully detailed tutorials provided by Ikat Bag's blog.

Finally something for me...this GIANT tote bag was created using the excellent tote tut on the Sew Mama Sew blog.  I love that blog!
It has been refreshing to discover that you really are never to old to learn something new.  My next venture will be woodworking...I'm getting the itch to build bookcases...wish me luck!
