Learning a New Craft

Growing up with two expert seamstresses in the family, mom and grandma, one might have thought that I would have learned how to sew.  (I'm not counting that one 4-H class many many years ago that earned me an honorable mention at the county fair for my pedal pushers and matching top!)  If I did know how to sew, these are the types of things I'd be making:

Amy Butler has patterns here for these projects and more like them if you're interested.  And who knows, maybe one day I'll finally learn, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

  1. Wow! These are beautiful! Did you know that I too made an outfit for 4-H? It was a white capri pant and sailor blouse combo and I cried multiple times during it's construction! I have since realized it is cheaper to buy than to cry, but I do love a straight line sewing project. Perhaps I could tackle the quilt someday?
