I have been noticing all of the giant cowls around lately and really like the idea. They look so cozy. looking through my chop bin I found this turtleneck that I really disliked and had already started to dismantle. The cowl is made out of the waist of the sweater. Basically all I did was cut a straight line from under one arm hole to the other. I have not finished the edge yet, but I’m planning on folding and sewing it up with a zigzag stitch.
My very first quilt is done! I’m so excited! My inspiration for the design was a bookshelf with books on it, it’s about 42″x53″. I did a little bit of embroidery on it and may add some more later. I definitely have lots of room to improve my quilting skills, but I am really happy with it!
I made this for Daddy’s birthday. He needed something to rest his arm on when sitting at his desk, so I decided to try making a mini quilt. This is my first quilting project, and I made many mistakes that I hopefully learned from!
This post marks the start of my new project. It’s secret.
Here is a picture of some fabric that I am using in my secret project. Hopefully I will have it done pretty soon and will post some pictures.
I’ve been wanting to make this into a skirt for a long time and I finally got around to it last night! As you can see the zipper went from the top of the dress to below where I was wanting to cut it, so I came up with a way to shorten the zipper. I still had to do a good bit of sewing on it, but at least I didn’t have to put a whole new zipper in!
Yay! I got some more practice with the sewing machine!

These two shirts were in my chop bin because of minor stains on the one and a bad fit for the other. I thought they went well together, and wanted to try using two articles of clothing on one project. I actually got the idea to do this from Busch Gardens, I saw several ladies wearing tops with braided halters.
