I'm still here!



I know it's been a while since I've posted a real post. Even longer since I posted a sewing tutorial. Yikes has it really, been since November?!  

I can assure you that I have been working hard to share some new projects with you. The problem is, I have about half a dozen unfinished projects laying around and none that are totally ready to share. Do you ever have that problem? It makes for some very inefficient blogging. 

So I thought I'd share some sneak peeks on what's to come soon. Well hopefully sooner than later. School just started back up and I'm overwhelmed by the work load this semester. It's safe to say that I am SICK of group projects. 

Anyways, here's what I'm working on. Hope this gets you excited about what's to come!


A Target clearance find with a little renovation


Eek! A free pdf pattern. Be excited. 


Remember when I tried embroidery way back when? Well I've made a teeny bit of progress since then.


I was really excited to find the pleated skirt at Goodwill. A little length off should give it the update it needs. 


 Another super cool thrifted treasure. I'm still on the fence on what to do with it though...


And a tutorial for the It's a Cinch Bag is just around the corner! 



Anything catch your eye?

A tutorial for the Cinch Bag? With zippered lining? Yes, please! I could always use another bag for easy textbook toting. I'm excited to see everything else that's coming up, too! ^-^

I love it all! But I'm most interested in the cinch bag! It looks like the perfect diaper bag solution! ( I can't find anything that I'm really in LOVE with)

Can't wait to see everything you come up with!

Sending you sunshine,

The Cinch Bag looks ADORABLE!!!! I know exactly how you feel. I have about 4 unfinished projects (d.i.y./sewing) right now. But I did finish 2 last week... It makes ya feel good when you finally complete them. BEST WISHES!

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

love free patterns! and your embroidery is looking great! I too have several unfinished projects on the go - or just started in my head... so frustrating I should do them, but then cleaning and napping takes over!

Renee said...

I look forward to the bag tutorial!

Rachel said...

AAAAHHHH, you're killing me, Katy! I drooled over the adorable fabric on that SAME Target shirt this week and couldn't get past the funk-tastic sleeves. Why it didn't cross my mind to just alter them, I'll never know. I may have to head back to Target now ;-) I'm excited to see your new top!

Ali said...

I think I have 6 different projects started right now and school has definitely left them at a little bit of a halt... It happens to the best of us!! I'm certainly not learning though - I find myself going out and buying supplies for some other new project that I just can't wait to add to the queue! Maybe I'll finish one soon? Or just keep shopping... :)

Looks like my crafting space full of unfinished projects!

I just wanted to say that I ALWAYS enjoy your blog. You do crafting and you have a LIFE. There's no shame in that! So many blogs are stay at home mums and I'm sick of having to look at photos of people I don't know's kids! Your blog is a breath of fresh air!

Look at it this way... you're just a teeny-tiny statistic inside the big income image. No offense, but you are not worth the work for them to complete what it takes to truly knock you down, after you know how to defend your self.
