I did not make one thing for myself when I first started sewing. Everything was always for someone else. Which I really enjoyed doing dont get me wrong, but it seems like the things we are good or best at doing we reserve for others. For example my husband absolutely loves my Strawberry Lemonade, Fruit Pizza, and many other of my special meals/ treats but the only time I make those special things are for when im taking them to other places. I guess because im best at them I save making them for special occasions. I really shouldnt do that, I should make them more often then I do, like during the week for no particular reason. Sewing has been that way for me, I make special things for my daughter or for a gift for friends and family. In June I finally did something for myself and now i've sewn 3 or 4 things for myself, and its been realy nice. I dont think im being selfish at all, I think im just treating myself a little and becoming more deliberate in makeing sure I skim a little off the top for me. If you have never done anything for yourself for whatever reason try creating one of these little numbers just for you. I very purposely picked simple and easy projects so you have no excuse :)
Come On
Go Ahead & Do It!

per yard! I firgured this dress with all the material and elastic cast less then $4 to make!
