Today I got to hang out with my friend Lindsay and her adorable daughter Daisy at the Purl District. We tackled a hand sewing project making these pin cushions. We made as much progress as could be expected with two children under the age of 4 assisting us, and a short time limit.
Chatting about sewing and working on this project inspired me to come home and work on some spring sewing that I've been putting off. I whipped up a couple of these lazy days skirts in just under an hour. I first saw these here on Amanda's blog. Give me another hour and I'll whip out three more!
I sewed these on my tiny Ikea dining table and used a vintage radio cabinet to lay my rotary mat on. This might not sound strange to some of you, but I happen to have a large craft/sewing studio that my amazing husband put together for me, and I never use it. I take that back-I have used it to brood a few batches of chicks, and my fabric, scissors, buttons, and thread are now all covered with a fine sifting of dust because of this fact. Honey if you're reading this, I promise I will clean my craft room soon, and put it to good use.
