Sew What! Reader Showcase!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today the sun is shining and the air is cool but alas I am tied to my house with typing (I am hubby's secretary) and laundry (I am hubby's laundress) but I may get out for a stroll with my wee angel so I am going to let the pictures do most of the talking.


My partner in crime Cynthia's answer to the challenge. How clever (and awesome) is that tree applique?


Deci of The Rick rack Shack's lovely number using recycled denim. Isn't the embroidery detail from a pant leg great as the centre piece?


Steph of Mon Petite Poppet made this adorable ruffled number for her Petite Poppet. Sew cute!


Erin of Luck & Bliss used her chosen fabric for the month (Knit cotton) to make this uber twirly skirt for her Flamenco classes. I love the photo and the thought of kickin' up my heels in this number!


Thank you so much for sewing along with us! It has been so much fun! Remember it is never to late to join in the fun, you can even make the skirt from last week if you like. This is about inspiration and fun! And speaking of, here is this weeks challenge in case you missed it at the top of my blog space or over at The Sewing Dork's posts.

SEW WHAT WEEK TWO CHALLENGE:
The next challenge is a bag/clutch/purse with words. Any kind of words. Use your chosen fabric, some words and a healthy dose of imagination. Once you're done, add your photos to the Flickr group  to show the world.

Those are so cute!!!

I'm sorry I didn't get to post my picture of my cute skirt for the contest. It's on Comin' Home...a square dance circle skirt out of an old cotton sheet. It was on yesterday's post. Ah well, you might like to see it anyway. It's on my sewing blog with a tutorial, DC.'s Creations. Maybe I'll be able to do the purse one. :o)

Hi Melissa, Don't worry about not getting my skirt in. I should have sent it to you and there was so much going on that I forgot. I hope to enter this weeks. I need to do it! I want to do it. :o)
