The more my fabric collection grows, the more I’m convinced that collecting fabric scraps is equivalent to collecting memories.
Tonight I was digging around looking for scraps for the first draft of a new project (yes, a new project is in the works, woo!) and found this memorable scrap. My college roommate and I used it to cover an armchair in our dorm room sophomore year. We decided to call it “The Hot Seat” and added the iron-on letters and everything. I honestly don’t know what we were thinking.
I’m embarrassed to admit that it may have even been my idea. Hey, our college town was in the middle of a cornfield and we didn’t like parties. This (and studying) was how we chose to fill our time, which I think our parents really appreciated. Anyway. Stand by while this scrap gets turned into something new and exciting -because that, my friends, is the beauty of recycling fabric. 🙂

I love “the hot seat!” And I admire your ability to sew. I picked up some fabric and a pattern (my first) in hopes to make a dress for my daughter’s third birthday. It’s still a number of months away… so hopefully I can pull it off! Growing up, my grandmother did all the sewing in our house. She used to make all her own clothes, without patterns. And they were beautiful. So I truly mean it when I say I envy those of you with sewing talent!
Thank you! Although most of the time I feel like I am just stumbling through the craft of sewing without any real talent. 🙂
Good luck on your daughter’s dress and don’t get frustrated if the pattern is hard to follow. If you have trouble, try following online tutorials… sometimes I feel like they are easier than patterns because they have so many helpful photos!
