I wanted something fun so I started making these. Two layers of fabric, three layers of interfacing, two layers or more of batting, kam snaps, elastic of course thread 😂. 5 1/2 hours later we got wings
I purchased these used coveralls for Farm work. I had plans to machine embroidery Zombies all over but I was worried about the colors and I would have had to rip seams out. At this point I changed my mind and said... I just going to get JIGGY! with it. LOL some of the dedigns are on the machine. I even embroidered the Lord's Prayers on it.

Took me two months to finish these. I got really sick and it delayed them. The inseam gave me fits had to redo it three times. Now lets see how they wear.

Just a heads up its Feb 2021 two months after i did these black& white jeans. I can not stand them! So I cut them up to use on different projects. I just did not like them/ the feel/ you know.... I did not feel pretty or even comfortable in them.... Got to go.... GONE!
Once an awhile you come across a payterb that fits great. ( with a slight modification) i has these t- shirt squares cut out from years ago! Why I did it I do not remember?? LOL i serged them together to make a panel and cut out these pants. I added fliers and hearts from the left over pieces. Crazy arnt they!

During all this freezing rain/ snow I had goals I wanted to do in sewing. I have made some hats, gloves, enlarged some thermals so I can wear them. I finally got to making a pair of panties. I found this book at half priced bookstore and wanted to try several patterns. The gloves has given me some fits. I seem to sew one great and the other one would be to small. The hat was easy but I had to enlarge the pattern - I have a lot of hair! The panties in this book are 'Granny' panties but I really wanted to stay in the book. The instructions on the panties were confusing and unclear. I had to go to you tube for addition help with tutorials. I have not tried on the panties yet but Im very excited about getting some of my goals accomplished!!

I wanted to try doing a theme USA Quilt. This is what I've learned so far. It will not fit perfectly. Best to over size the midwest. I di mean overside and trim it down. Somehow i cut several states upside down. ( with directional print this is really important) I drew arrows on the states to show which direction the print should go. Than amazing i placed two states upside down. Lesson: TAKE YOUR TIME!. 😂

I have been thinking of making this quilt top for years. I am vowing to myself to do more and look at less I want to do. Ie: Pinterest. Lol there were problems the states are not flush. There was a big gap ( see picture) but i do not like filling it in with thread. Im leaving this one as is. For reference.

3/3/2021 I wore these cleaning out pens around the farm today. I am beyond happy with how they feel. Comfortable YES! I will say probably not super stylish but I am really happy. Ok very Happy😃This was a project! Looked easy on you tube but not so much. 6 days! A lot of seam ripping and in the end just making it work. I copied a pair of over alls I already had. But that did not work well. I had a great deal if bunching in the back. Thank goodness for a 1957 sewing machine. I added sone applique for fun and practice.
