If you follow me on Pinterest or Instagram, you might have noticed a new board or a few pictures recently labeled #52weeks52projects. I have been on a pinning hiatus recently because I felt guilty for pinning tons of things that I never actually got around to making, and it seemed silly to hoard ideas. But the new intentional me decided that, instead of abandoning ship, I should just make them, already! I'm aiming for about one new DIY a week - maybe slightly more/less depending on how difficult the tutorial turns out to be. Here are my first two attempts:
1/52: bobble-frame purse [things I learned: don't start with such a hard-to-match-up fabric the first time, take your time with the embroidery thread part or it will look super messy; sewing a curved line on a sewing machine is way harder than I thought it would be]
2/52: yo yos [things I learned: I can't sew even stitches to save my life, apparently. Thank goodness the Joann's in town sells yo yo makers so I could just do this the cheater way.]
Next up: a skirt for Lorelei. Wish me luck!
