This post inspired by my {NEW} sewing machine!!!

My birthday is tomorrow and my inlaws are so wonderful that they gave into this little blogging habit of mine. They were the ones who gave me my Silhouette , and they have now given me this!
Again I must say that I CANNOT I reapeat CANNOT sew. I am the person who hemmed my jeans with duct tape, because they were always to long and I never got them hemmed. I am soooo embarassed to type this. (probably not as embarassed as my grandmother who is actually an EXCELLENT seamstress) She is going to have to teach me A LOT. I can sew a button on  pants, thats about it. Oh and I can cross stich. So there you have it...My secret...I want to sew all the lovely things and have a brand new sewing machine but havent the slightest clue where to even begin.

On that note here are all the cute, adorable, or just plain droolworthy things I would love to be able to make one day...A girl can dream right?

  1. I love your blog! I'm going to have to hire you to help me with H's next b'day party. You're so creative!

  2. Hey there! I will absolutely help plan a party. I love doing that. I have tons of party themes going through my head as I type. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. haha you're so funny :) I am in the same boat, so don't worry. Thanks for linking up my rag letters. And believe me when I say this - if I could do them, you definitely can! I am sewing-challenged as well! I love all the projects you linked up, so inspiring!!

  4. haha! Welcome to the dark side. :) You will love your sewing machine.
