Crafting in Wonderland: almost cute

I made this tutu-ish skirt today so that I can practice cutting out fabric for circle skirts. Cutting was easy, but sewing a curved seam is crazy. And it only got harder when I started pinning the elastic the the inner circle. I'm considering taking sewing lessons. lol.

It didn't turn out too bad though. I definitely need more practice, but it could have been worse. :P At least I got the formula down for cutting out the circle.

Last night I harnessed the power of my one step button hole function on my new sewing machine! Amazing feature. Maybe I should have used buttons instead of elastic.

Oh well. I'm off to find some tips on sewing curved seams.

Wish me luck.


  1. I think its cute!
    I can't even thread my damn bobbin,
    so please take solace in the fact that you
    are an amazing seamstress in my eyes for pulling that off!!

  2. sewing circles totally blows, I'm not very good at it! :o(

    Keep on practicing, the skirt is cute!!

  3. Hey - Just wanted to say that i love your header image - its wonderful!
