I got lots of pictures of the crafts, but none of “the girls”! So sad!
A few of my college friends started a monthly craft/sewing night where we can get together, chat, and get creative. It’s so much fun.
There was four of us tonight and everyone did something different. It’s fun to be inspired by the talent of your friends.
I did a few sewing projects that have been waiting for some TLC for a couple of YEARS!
Finally fixed the handle on this purse! YAY!
And sewed on a few missing beads from this shirt!
And stitched up my table cloth bag! (what, don’t your table cloths have bags?)
A few years ago, my sister gave me a craft kit for Christmas, and inside were treasures from my grandmother’s sewing items from “the olden days”. haha I love it so much, it’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever got.
Check this out…
Inside are sewing needles and I adore them.
But seriously, my favorite part is looking at where she bought some of the threads! Ames and Zayres!
Remember those stores? That was before Target and Walmart came waltzing in.
Someday I’ll actually learn how to sew something worthwhile. It’s daunting to think about, but when I’m ready, I’ll tackle it.
The night ended with a homemade cupcake. Devine.
Thanks for hosting such a fun night, Jenn!
Do you remember any of these stores?
I should show you my sewing machine someday – it’s well over 50 years old and has all these old attachments I’ll never figure out! I bought it at a garage sale in Portland 30 years ago. I use it to repair stuff…
