sew!

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

so, this post has been a looong time coming, i suppose...
a few months ago i got a really big urge to start sewing. SO i went out and bought a sewing machine! since then i've been sewing anything + everything. minus clothing {i'm still a little intimidated by clothing}.

while flipping through martha stewart mag a few months ago, i saw this necktie envelope. i knew it was a perfect gift for irv for valentines day [i know this post is a month late, but the gift was on time! :] since i had already started making him a tie!

so here's my version + i decided i wanted to add a button to the front.



i'm super happy with the way it turned out! its extremely easy and the outcome is really satisfying. i know more necktie envelopes are in my future :)

thanks for stopping by my blog hun! i am soo glad i found yours, i JUST started my sewing adventure too and the only thing i have made is a camera strap cover, i did a tutorial post on my blog. it was straight lines so pretty simple. since then, i have sewn fabric wallets (i learned at a class) and i love them as gifts, will do a post about it later. i am excited to see all your future sewing projects and maybe i will try this necktie envelope someday!!! =)
