Free Beginner Projects

A bag is a good place to start: http://www.bhg.com/bhg/story.jsp?storyid=/templatedata/bhg/story/data/vintagefabricbag_03172005.xml

Or maybe a pillowcase skirt: http://belladia.typepad.com/bella_dia/2006/05/pillowcase_skir.html

Christmas is coming: http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=55d076ecfd22f010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=stocking%20pattern&rsc=ns2006_m1

Everyone needs a pin cushion: http://crafts.kaboose.com/pincushion.html

Hope these suit your budding seamstress. Happy Happy sewing to you & Gabby!

Thanks for the great ideas. Are you on-call if we run into trouble?

martha is a great source!

and i bought fabric for living room curtains today!! (yay!) for only 12 dollars! quite excited. it is all in the wash right this very minute. this may be the most cost efficient curtain project i have taken on so far. :)

but a very monotonous project to do as you very well know. :)

ohh, and i found your skirt book online used for really cheap. and i found another fun book. we could go in on them together and get free shipping!

Hi I saw the skirts out of pillow cases. Do you think it could be switched to a no-sew. My machine is out of commission and it looks like a great project for my girls.
