I've been sewing since I was in elementary school. I remember sewing my 6th grade graduation dress. Sewing has been a major part of my world as is my love of fabrics. Put me in a fabric store and I lose my mind. LOL!
At one point I made and sold lingerie. I loved it but I have this problem with not wanting to sew the same thing over and over and the last house party I did wore me out. Long story but I took a break from it and never picked it back up. But I still have a lot of the different colored laces and elastics, satin straps, etc. that I used to use.
Now that I'm finally going back to work my wardrobe has been in dire need of updating but since my funds are really tight my only option has been to pull out the sewing machine again and work on all of the fabric I've been collecting (smile). I think I made ten tops last week.
The photo above is of some lace I added to a top I made and the one below is of my collection of buttons that are in this huge tackle box. This doesn't even show all of the buttons in the box. I miss a store I used to visit where they had buttons in this huge box for like a penny a piece. Everytime I went I would sit on the floor and go through buttons. I have a whole lot of patience when it's something I really want.
I've got bins of thread, lace, patterns, notions, needles, etc., etc. Below is just one of the purses I've made. Yeah, sewing is a big part of my world.
