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!March 2, 2019 at 1:04 pm #26428
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.March 3, 2019 at 12:15 am #26434
Lovely work Cassel. It would seem your creative talents have no end. Cool page! <3March 3, 2019 at 7:42 am #26441
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.March 3, 2019 at 11:40 am #26444
Amazing costumes, Cassel! Bet your kids loved them!
Annie – Sweet memory captured nicely! Well done!March 3, 2019 at 11:51 am #26446
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.March 3, 2019 at 10:06 pm #26454
Thanks, shutterpixi, appreciate your comment, 🙂 <3March 4, 2019 at 12:39 am #26479

Awww, thank you so much Dawn, always appreciated my friend. <3March 4, 2019 at 7:43 pm #26495Royanne HewkoParticipant
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.March 4, 2019 at 10:19 pm #26498
@Royanne, who would even notice a missing ring? Great job.March 5, 2019 at 5:16 am #26503
Royanne you have created a lovely page and I think the shower curtain is beautiful … who counts the holes anyway, 🙂 <3March 5, 2019 at 5:28 am #26505
Hello Scrapbook Campers. The photo I used is from Unsplash and was taken by hector-j-rivas, such lovely colours! The cluster I made using a script from Pink’s Poetic Scraps. Thanks for takin a peek.March 5, 2019 at 11:05 am #26508
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!March 5, 2019 at 11:07 am #26509
Annie – Another nice work! Like the reference to the song in The Sound of Music, too! Perfect for your composition!March 5, 2019 at 7:42 pm #26511
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,

Cassel, cute costumes and the kids look lovely in them. Lovely memories.
Annie, I love the blue layout… lovely watercolor, colors, and elements.
Royanne, I love the background and the elements… great story.March 8, 2019 at 2:24 pm #26566Royanne HewkoParticipant
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.March 9, 2019 at 9:42 am #26588MicheleParticipant
Wonderful work, ladies!

Royanne – Sounds like you and your family have lots of good memories wrapped up in sewing! Very nice work on your pic!!March 9, 2019 at 7:19 pm #26603
Thanks dear Cristina, much appreciated. <3March 9, 2019 at 7:22 pm #26604
Dear Royanne, I love this one, so very natural and oh so cute, well done my friend. Can’t have enough jammies! LOL! <3March 9, 2019 at 11:17 pm #26613
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, 🙂March 12, 2019 at 4:27 am #26733
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.March 12, 2019 at 1:40 pm #26746
Another great creation, Annie!March 13, 2019 at 3:14 pm #26795CristinaParticipant
Annie, what a nice layout…The background paper came out great and the sewing machines are so cute. I like the cluster too… Lovely work, my friend <3March 13, 2019 at 9:23 pm #26813
Royanne and Annie….. you both have once again created wonderful pages… well done!
