Hi everyone :) This is Jessica from Happy Together and today I’m going to take a look back at some of my very first sewing creations. They aren’t from a long time ago, but they do mark the beginning in a new chapter in my life.
Let’s venture back and check out some not so fabulous pictures….
It was only a few years ago I began sewing, about 4 to be exact. I had no idea where it would take me when I began. I initially wanted to make some cute purses and friends.
This is one of the first purses I ever made and it was for my mom. I was so proud to give it to her. I remember being frustrated with things, but as I learned, practice and you will get it.
This is one of the first pieces of clothing I ever made for myself. It was a Burda Style pattern. AGAIN, another huge learning experience. I had never done clothing and was so intimidated. It turned out okay, but I made it a bit small.
Crazy me even thought maybe I could make dresses for my bridesmaids!!!!!! (My maid of honor modeling for me). Of course, I didn’t accomplish this.
I found that it’s a good thing to be over ambitious. You never know what you might accomplish or what you will learn. When it comes to sewing, just go for it!!!! Start small and work your way on up. My work has come a long way and you can see much better work (and photos!) on my blog now :) May this encourage any of you who are thinking about starting a new craft. You gotta start somewhere!
Thanks for letting me share with everyone Abby :).
Thanks Jessica! Make sure you stop by Happy Together and say hello (and believe me, you’ll want to stay awhile)!
