The invasion of fingertip oven mitts...

I'd like to proudly announce that I am starting to get the hang of this sewing business. 
Thanks to a few crafty people on youtube & other craft sites, I feel more and more confident with each finished project...

Lately I've been practicing by making my fingertip oven mitts.... Here are a few pics of finish & unfinished pairs...

PINK! (special request by Jo)

A stack of unfinshed mitts

 These are my keepers. It matches the oven mitt I made a couple weeks ago...

I think she's great, and I'm glad I went to youtube to find some of these fun tutorials.

I'm considering getting a bias tape maker now, because it gives the projects a nice clean edge. 
Here is a video of the machine:

A quick update....

I've been stepping up my sewing lately, and I've actually got a little basket going of the things I'd like to sell. I have a ton of projects that I've cut out & pinned, but I'm missing a few finishing touches so they're piling up. I'm hoping to make it to the store this weekend to get what I need. 

I found a book that I'm really interested in reading. 
It's called "Crafty Superstar", and I'm hoping it will give me good ideas on finally getting this up & running, but I think I've been pretty productive with my little crafts. 
I'm thinking to add jewelry to my repertoire & I did managed to hunt down my old jewelry making tools & I'm considering it.
I haven't made anything significant since high-school & when I started college so I'm hoping that I can jump back into that & make some pieces soon. In H-school I use to run around with all my jewelry & sell them to my schoolmates. That was fun.

I think at this point, I really need to focus on my projects, so I won't be blogging as much. 

If you want to look at any of my progress please add me on flickr. 


This is the quickest way for me to update what I'm up to & making.

I'll blog if I learn something interesting & fun to share.
I occasionally run across some really good projects to try, so I'll share those when I can.

Wish me luck, I'm really excited. Hoping that my other crafty friends will be joining me in this endeavor. 

Til my next update.
