Faux leather clutches

Day after Christmas 1/2 off everything at value village got this in a bag of fabric for 1.75. Got at least 4 clutches from this one piece! It is a fades burgundy color first hong that came to mind was ox blood!

Girl bye

McCall patterns were .99 at Joann's so I bought my pleated skirt pattern and this vogue pattern for 3.99. Just like with you tube (watch it long enough you think you can do it too) I watch Adrienne Erica and Mimi and think yeah I make that too girl bye! Was going to get the kwik sew pattern for this dress Mimi made but 11.99 put a stop to that. I do not sew that well. 3.99 is as far as an investment I will make.

Big touch

I have the big touch. Whenever I crochet always comes out too big but that's cool all I have to do is a give to someone with bigger feet than me or felt them down.

But I am learning it will do. It I want better. I was going to make a sequin skirt but the animal print one let me know I am not quite ready. Practice makes improvement.

All dressed up

I ended up doing blue and gold could not find a crimson V-neck tee but the out fit still came out cute! I had to tighten my skirt and put a bow at the closure i paired it with gold bracelets and my sparkly clutch cover.

Not bad

Or at least that is what I tell myself my daughter has no comment. I really need a class on sewing. Cutting the pattern was pretty easy it took me a while to figure how to cut it out and then I had to watch a you tube video to see how to sew both legs together but I made it. I found an outfit on pinterest I am going to recreate with my pants. They could possibly pass as pj bottoms.

Entrelac Cowl

Saw the brown cowl at my local yarn shop they are working on the pattern I am much too impatient for that. Timmy said use an entrelac hat pattern that is what I am doing and so far so good. I need one in that super soft yarn they used at the shop.

My Lucy Hat

I love this pattern. It was easy even with the short rows. With some help from you tube the short rows were not that bad. I can see myself making some more it is blocking now and I really hope it is dry by time I go to work tomorrow. I recommend this pattern to everyone. It doesn't take a lot of yarn. I used scrap yarn and knew the whole time I was knitting it I would run out of yarn.
