I also wanted to post some of the sewing projects that I have been working on.
These are the few that I haven't totally messed up. I also have some really cute aprons that I've made, but haven't photographed yet.
I have been learning from the Lotta Jansdotter "Simple Sewing" book. It's really easy to use and it has lot of great and easy projects. A lot of the projects you can learn in an afternoon, and it's easy to modify them so that you can make them more of your own design.
