I'm so proud of myself!

I've been playing around with my sewing machine at home. It's been so much fun that I think I'm addicted now :). I made the black apple doll. It turned out so cute! It's my first softie and I'm so proud. It's definitely not perfect, but you can barely see the imperfections. I still need to sew the top of the head. I was thinking about adding some black yarn for more hair. I will also make her a scarf and add some buttons.

I also made a headband. It was very easy to make. I think I'm going to make myself a whole collection :)

So, what do you guys think? To be a newbie, not bad at all right?
I haven't finish my tote bag though. I've been working on that in class. Since I missed almost half of the class last week, I haven't been able to finish. I think I'll finish it on my next class. I already sewed the handles and iron the interfacing. Now, it's just a matter of putting it all together. I can tell you that it's looking very nice :)

I need to start thinking what my next sewing project would be. I want something more advance so I can learn as much as I can. Any suggestions?

Anyway, I should probably start getting ready for my trip tomorrow. I have so much to do today.


  1. Awesome!! Congrats! My sewing has been limited to tote bags and skirts; that doll appears rather complicated :)

  2. The doll is so cute! You should make lots of accessories for her :)
    I love the headband, as well. Can't wait to see the tote!

  3. The doll is so cute! And I like the head band too, actually I was thinking of making one for myself, thank you for the idea! And yes, sewing is addictive for me too, I wish for more hours in the day to make all the thing that I want to do.

  4. Thank you so much! Your comments mean a lot to me. Now, I'm off to a few hours of sleep before my trip to DR tomorrow. I'm really excited about seeing the family.

  5. You got lots of talent! Keep on rocking!!!!
