On a sewing roll........

Well, there are TWO things that I found that were super cute that I wanted to try, so I got my sewing machine out and cleaned all the dust off of it. LOL I am NOT a sewer.........I bought this machine a couple of years ago when it was the HOT thing to sew on your scrap book pages and that is all I have ever used for it with the exception of hemming something here or there.

So here is another pumpkin that I made tonight. The first one posted below I took to work and it sits on my desk...well.......wouldn't you know, my co worker wants one.....LOL
But I think that I will keep this one, (I like it better) and give her the first one that I made.






















Now on to the dress form pin cushion.
Someone showed me this tut on line (HERE)

Took me a few days to wrap my mind around how to pin the sides on this dress form. And then when I figured that out and started sewing I realized that I am BAD at sewing.....LOL I need practice, so this is my first practice dress form. There are flaws that I have tried to cover up, and its not perfectly straight.......but it turned out OK...I think that these are just super cute.

  10. Lovely pumpkins and the dress form is very nice! I think you can sew just fine! Since I don't sew any longer, I want to get my machine tuned up for paper crafts! So sad!
