National Sewing Month

September is National Sewing Month!  As you can tell by my exclamation mark, I’m pretty excited.

I. adore. sewing.

It puts me into my own world where I’m not concerned about the dishes, laundry, or messes that have accumulated around every corner of my house.

I sit down at my sewing machine, and I work on a project that I’ve had my eye on and lose myself in it for 10 minutes to a couple of hours, depending on how willing my children are to play nicely that day.

So in celebration of National Sewing Month, here are some of the projects that I hope to accomplish:

  • Halloween costumes for my daughters (yes…I know it’s a month and a half away.  If you have ever tried to sew costumes for your child when your child is present, it DOES takes a month…now add another costume to the mix…you see why I’m starting early.  I most likely will finish these by October 30th)

  • More hearts for one of my favorite charities A Heart to Hold that sends weighted hearts to families going through pregnancy and infant loss

    Sewn Heart

  • I have a couple of craft fairs coming up, so I get to make TONS of little onesies to hopefully share with lots of people!

In the middle of all of that, I really want to help you all with some basic sewing techniques so that I can help newbies learn how to sew with me!

Have fun with your projects.  JoAnn Fabrics is having weekly sales on different fabrics, so check them out.  At the end of the month they are having a HUGE coupon commotion, so you know where I’ll be!
