Another Side Of Me

Happy Wednesday!!!
 
Today I am doing something different, I am letting you in on another side of me!
 
 Considering I have never used stitching on my cards or layouts you may find it surprising to know that I also sew! Truth be told my sewing machine has been in the basement since I moved so it has been a while, I think it is time to get it back out.
 
Here are a few projects I did, I learned to sew by myself so of course in the beginning it was...
 lets say a little rough around the edges but as with anything it becomes easy when you know how, lol
 
 
I started out doing pillows or couch pillows as some call them , towards the end of this creative adventure I was making one in a whopping seven minutes..you betcha I timed it!!
 
From Casual Pillows
 
 
To Fun Pillows that could be hung



To sets which made great gifts

 
 
I am the type of person who cannot make the same type of anything over again  so I had to explore my options which resulted in making aprons
 
They started out simple (of course!)
 


 
To making the whole kit and kaboodle

 
 
That was short lived as well so I started to alter my jeans, trying to invent my own style (That didn't work out so well, lol)
 
 
 
You guessed it , I moved onto making curtains which seem to last longer than anything else I attemped, horray for me!! It lasted 1 whole month, hehe!
 
 
 
Back to pillows and I covered this whatchamacallit... don't know the name for it
 
 
 
and when this was out of my system I got serious and started to recover Sofa cushions , I did cottages and campers and loved every minute.  Then I found scrapbooking and fell in love all over again.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me, tomorrow I am sharing my family with you!! 
 
Have a fantastic day!!

I also recently have revisited my "first creative love" which was sewing, started long ago in my teens. I will admit to getting a new machine that embroiders, which brings a whole new level of fun to sewing. So glad to find that we are kindred spirits! your work is fabulous!

I did love it. You need to make a quilt. I have the top of one made & need to find time to stop & put it all together. Perhaps I will share it with you one day! ;) Hugs~Patti

Wow a completely different facet of you! Awesome. I'm really impressed that you learned by yourself!!! I had the help of my MIL lol and yes I guess we go through phases... I used to sew, then did lots of cooking (including canning), did crochet (got fed up after doing a tablecloth for 2 years....) yup nice to try new things!!!

Jennifer said...

All of these creations are wonderful! I'm just like you, I rarely make the same thing twice.

jessica said...

How cool is this!! Thanks for sharing not only your gorgeous sewing but more about yourself!!!
Hope you had a GREAT hump day!

That's Great! I have always wanted a Sewing Machine. Have you ever tried Crocheting? I've been doing that for a few months. It's a lot of Fun.
Happy Spring! :0)

Great post Naomi - love all the creations. I too do a little bit of sewing but nothing to show. I did fully reupholster a 3 seater sofa, 2 seater and a foot stool a couple of years ago:-)

Cathy -Mercieschild said...

Naomi you are one awesome talented Sweetie, I love your posts and your sharing with us. You are amazing. Love seeing these. hugs, Cathy K

Karen said...

My super sweet friend, these sewing projects are exquisite! You are so talented in so many ways.. it's such a joy to see this side of you, too. :o) Gorgeous creations and so beautifully done. I love pillows (the more, the merrier!) so that was especially fun for me to see! :o) I've only used my sewing machine for cards since I received it a little over a year ago, but have longed to sew *something* that isn't paper. ;) Eventually! Lots of love to you, my beautiful Naomi! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
