    Sewing

    Did you ever do any sewing, for yourself, for your kids or for someone else? Do you have children or grandchildren interested in sewing? or fascinated by all needlecrafts?

    Create a layout about your sewing adventures.

    Show off your PSP skills and maybe your sewing skills at the same time!

    I am going first here. When the kids were younger (and I didn’t really have much to do on the computer), I loved to sew. I still love it but I don’t have as much time. For 14 years, I did all the kids Halloween costumes (and a couple for myself and my husband). Here is one layout I did as part of my Alphabet book that illustrates some of those costumes:

    Everything on this page was made from scratch.

    Hello Scrapbook Campers.  The painting I have used for this project is a watercolour by Jackie Trinder.  I went my own road with this one.  The elements were made using scripts.  The leaves came from PixelScrapper.  Thanks for takin a peek.

    At one point, I had over 40 costumes at home. I started trying to rent them but in a way, I didn’t have a big enough selection to make it a viable option. I lent them to a lady I knew who had hundreds of costumes and I would get $5 for each of my costumes she rented. It ended up that she moved away and I never saw them again. Sad in a way, but they likely would have just gathered dust in a closet anyway. It is nice for memory but that would have taken too much space.

    Great work.   Our youngest daughter wanted her bathroom to be yellow.   We could not find yellow shower curtains so I said I would make them.   Well, I folded the material in half and I ended up with 11 holes not the regular 12.   But, the funniest was, I did not notice it until I hung them up.   I had one extra hook, I thought that was great in case one broke.   Then I did a bit more looking and realized what I had done.

    @Royanne, who would even notice a missing ring? Great job.

    Royanne – Great story!  It made me smile, as I think about those “uh-oh” moments in my sewing.  Your shower curtain looks great, and what a super layout you’ve made to showcase it.  Nice work!

    Royanne, everything about your page is lovely.

    Annie,  “the needle pulling thread”  also reminded me of the sound of music…. a lovely creative page!

    well done to you both and best wishes,

    Thank you for the comments.   Annie and Cassel your pages are very inspiring.   I really enjoy looking at the work of other scrapbookers.

    My mom was a seamstress and she taught me how to sew.  I then taught my daughter how to sew.

    My daughter and I sewed my granddaughter 12 pairs of PJs.   I took a girl from the kit LLiella PJ Kids.  With the freehand tool, point to point, I went around her body, arms and legs and filled with actual pictures of the fabric we used for the  PJs we made.   I added a bevel to make it more realistic.  Then I selected the hair bows and slippers and changed the color.   I used cass-ColoredEdge for the red around the edge.   I used a quilt paper.  It sure took a long time to finish, but overall I was pleased.

    This is kind of a re-post.  I have already posted it in “What are you working on in March” but it is sewing themed so I am posting it here.  All details are in the original post … don’t want to waffle, 🙂

    Hi Scrapbook Campers.  This is my latest creation for this challenge.  The photo (as usual for me) is from Unsplash and was taken by quino-al.  Most of the delightful elements I used are from PixelScrappers.  The string was my creation as was the side border.  The background paper was made by using Effects-Reflection Effects-Pattern on the photo.  The flowers were made using a script called Whispy Vines from Designs by Digiscrapations.  Thanks for takin a peek.
