Sewing Saturday

on January 26, 2013

I am so overwhelmed by all the sewing projects I am trying to accompllish at one time. I just do NOT have enough time to do everything I need AND want to do in a day! UGH!! It’s seriously driving me crazy this week!! I have 4 photography sessions I’m working on as well as 3 sewing projects, a blog mentor group I’m participating in, which is REALLY helping me and I’m learning a lot. I’m glad I’m doing the photography and mentor group, but at the same time I just wish I had more time to sew.

Today, I was hoping to post the sew along dress, but I’m only half way done. I have the buttons and the bottom to put together. I’m afraid of doing the buttons! I was going to tackle that today, but my photograhy sessions looks sooooo much more inviting! LOL So, today you just get in the process pictures!

Sewing on the sleeves. Not my favorite part…

But, it all worked out! This is as far as I’ve gotten. I need to sew the button holes and sew on the buttons. I practiced doing this on a scrap yesterday and it was pretty easy, but it still makes me nervous to actually do it on the actual dress!! IMG_9068

I’m just glad my machine has a button foot that does all the work! Then it will even sew on the button with a different button foot. Yay! My life couldn’t get easier sewing buttons…. well, maybe it could…. πŸ™‚

What are you sewing this weekend? I hope a lot more than I am!! I better get back to working on photos! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

    I’m so impressed with what you can do now! I finally started my placemats! I’ve had the fabric since memorial day and I am finally doing it. They are all put together and ready to quilt. Now I just have to buy my free-motion foot and I will be set!
