let the sewing commence!

My fabric order came on Tuesday! I'll be starting my sewing projects right away, since I'll be making some much needed new clothes. ^_^ I haven't taken the time to make clothing for a while, but I'm really not digging what's out there right now in my price range. {meaning: i can't stand the cheap 80's look that I'm seeing everywhere. No offense to those of you who love it! If it's done right, it rocks.But you can't go cheap on it...} Anthropologie is a bit more my taste. Hence the need to make my own clothes! lol I'll be sure to post pics when they're finished! I also have some great ideas perking for some uber cute baby items, too!! ^_^

As I'm running around getting things read for an  upcoming vacation/roadtrip, I came across this idea in my email inbox from  Martha Stewart {who else? :)}
I love, love the idea of putting a kit of things together for them to do... especially the map. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to teach them about using a map and giving them an idea about true space, location and distance. I've already printed out the bingo cards, and will be gathering a bunch of fun things together for them to do while in the car!

Can't wait to see what beautiful clothes you create. I agree about being able to find good clothing styles...they don't exist right now.
BTW...thanks for stopping by my site!
