adventures in sewing

Aaron and I have a date tomorrow night with another couple. I've been looking forward to it for awhile and so I thought the occasion deserved something special. So I decided since I really don't know how to sew real garments yet, a headband shouldn't be too hard. Here is my new item in honor of going out sans children on a Saturday night.

And then once I got the hang of it, I convinced myself that maybe it wouldn't fall apart the first time I wear it. So I made some more. It kind of became addictive. They are pretty easy to make and I'm sure I did way too much hand sewing than needed. I bet I could've relied on my hot glue gun a little more and been a bit quicker.

Please excuse my pajamas and absolutely no makeup in the next photos.

I also made some cute little pouches. Greta has an endless amount of figurines and is always asking to bring a few with her, so I think these are the right sizes.

Sorry if the sewing talk is boring for some of you. It's just very new to me so I will try and keep it down to one post every week or two. There is actually something I hope I can photograph this weekend that I am actually proud of. It doesn't look wonky and it's pretty adorable. If only I can get Greta to try it on, she has an aversion to anything I make right now, but I really can't blame her. They look like 2nd grade art projects at the moment.
