My mom taught me to sew when I was in the 4-H program, but since then I haven’t done much. My mom recently gave me one of her sewing machines and I’ve been trying to get the hang of it again. My progress has been slow, but once I got some help from my mom and bought some new sewing machine needles, it’s gotten better. Here are a few things I’ve worked on, they are all items that I have repurposed.

These were both dresses that were too short. I cut off the bottoms to make headbands and used the remaining to make a top to wear over a shirt.

This is the project I am most proud of. It used to be a dress, I cut off the top and made it into a skirt.

And this is what it looks like on. (Please excuse the busy background).
