Things I Love: Making Stuff

My friend Sarah is hosting a sewing night for our mom's group.  It's not until June but I'm already scoping out a few projects I would mind whipping up while chatting with the ladies.

Here are some of my top picks!

Summer Flower Tee (which Disney promises is FAST to make.  I like fast).

I'm thinking navy shirt with white and red flower?  Or maybe white shirt with green flower?  What say you?

Then there are these No-Sew Flowers.  Cute, aren't they?  I like the idea of adding them to shirts, shoes, headbands ... really, you cover up a lot of stains with these cuties.  But then again, these are NO SEW--is that against the rule on sewing night?

One Pearl Button posted a tutorial knock off of this Anthropologie shirt.  I like it.  And I like that if and when I screw it up I will be at Sarah's house and she can save me, or--er, the shirt I mean.

Finally, there is this cute scalloped skirt.  I love it.  Problem is, I'm not sure if I can pull it off in one night.  But maybe I could leave it with the directions and Sarah could finish it.  Maybe not!

So much to make, so little talent time. 

What's your vote?  What should I make on our lady's sewing night?


  1. I can't wait to see what everybody makes. I suppose I should officially schedule it, right? :)

  2. Oh the skirt is so cute! I think I need a baby girl! :)

    Go for one of the first you can visit with your girls too and not have to focus too hard on the task at hand! :) Sewing night sounds fun! I may have to plan a Laramie version.

  3. I love this idea! I wish I could convince my mom friends to sew! Maybe we'll have to start with a crafting night instead.
