Sneak Peak…

Just call me Martha.

…Except I haven’t been in prison.

So maybe you should just nix that.

I have a confession.

I learned to sew.

…A somewhat straight line…

I am SO SO SO proud of myself.

To anyone who isn’t blind, my work has a lot of flaws.

Hopefully my girls will appreciate me for those flaws.

At least now I know how to operate a sewing machine.

Kinda.

But seriously, look at some of the cute creations from last week.

Burp Cloths…

I honestly made one 99% by myself.

It’s still in one piece.

Thank you Laura.

You have made me feel so proud of myself.

Does this officially make me a ‘homemaker’?

How about the fact that I have purchased my very own sewing machine that is on it’s way to my house at this very moment??

***Spoiler Alert***

Here’s Lauren’s crib bumper that is still in progress, but completely takes my breath away. I can’t wait for our little angel to catch some Z’s cuddled up against the minky fabric.

Just kidding. Seriously, thank you for giving me a crash course in home economics…

and seam ripping :)

I’ve learned the true secrets to sewing.
