a little bit of sewing...

A new pencil case for Bree....

I made one for Aimee on the weekend forgot to photograph it :( and then Bree wanted one too! Next thing I know Hope will be asking me for one, she hasn't YET! Thank goodness, as the one thing I hate to do is to sew zippers in.



My sewing machine is playing up a little bit, grrrr! And so I'll need to put it in for a service. Yet another expense I don't need at the moment, especially since Bree needs to see an orthodontist soon!

I think I may have to implement the no spend challenge very soon, just so I can pay for everything that's coming up.

You clever girl... I have never sewn a zipper ever! (one thing I must do before I die! hehe). We just had the dental nurse tell us that 3 of our kids need to see an orthadontist... arrrggghhh!

I don't mind doing zips as long as they aren't on the front of pants, anywhere else is fine :-) Love the love cloths in your shop, they are so cute :-)

beautiful job! I hate adding zippers! Mostly on clothes. Oh Barbie is putting together a valentiens card to send your way! Yes it will be late! LOL Huggs Marion

Great pencil case. I, personally don't do zippers as they scare me.
I like the NO SPEND challenge. Thanks for putting us onto that.

Ugh, I hate having my machine serviced! The "no spend challenge" is very interesting, thanks for sharing! I'm seriously going to look into the details of that.

I hate to admit that I don't sew and don't even own a sewing machine, your blog has definitely made me think about buying a sewing machine and learning how to make things. Your work is truly inspiring.

What a cool case! I think my Miss5 would love it if i gave that a go .... although it might have to be velcro. not sure about going the whole-hog and do the zip thing!
