It’s very important to me that I am always learning. By learning new techniques, I am becoming a better seamstress. If I am always a student in life, then I will act less like a know it all! For I know nothing. 

This week I learning two new sewing techniques: welt pockets and sewing knit fabric. Now I am no expert, but at least I attempted these new things!  

Today I finished my first knit project! I used Pixie Faire’s tutorial on sewing a cardigan. It actually turned out really good. So happy!!!

  

In my last post I mentioned taking an online class called Couture Techniques offered by Pixie Faire. In one of the lessons, I learned how to make welt pockets. It was actually easier than I expected. As I said last time, it is worth taking!  I tried this technique on the Liberty Jane Skinny Jeans. Next time I think I will make skinny slacks! Adding the welt pockets should make the pants look oh so professional!

   

 

On May 30th, I will be attending the What a Girl Wants show at Expo Idaho! I am so excited. I have been slacking on sewing but I have a good handful of pieces. I am going to be signing up to partner with Liberty Jane Clothing so that I can sell clothes made from patterns found on Pixie Faire. Ah just so excited!

Last week I received an affirmation regarding my sewing. I entered into a comment contest to win a free seat at LJC’s sewing class Couture Techniques. I won! Sewing doll clothing is one of the memories and legacy I want to leave behind for my daughter and nieces. I watched all of the videos in one night! Wooo, so inspiring and educational. For $59, it is worth the class and course packet.

Today I made a pair of Skinny Jeans designed by LJC. I bought this awesome zebra striped fabric from a local fabric store 3 years ago and haven’t figured out what to make until now. 

Here’s how they turned out!
