My 100 Day Sewing Challenge #13

Let's see, in my last 100 Day Sewing Challenge I hit day 25, and I've been able to stitch at least 15 minutes for four days this week!!!!  I know, I was surprised too!!!  

This puts me at 29 days!

Here's what I stitched up ...

Remember this sheet that I got at the thrift store for $2.98 ...



I told you my plan was to turn it into sleepwear for myself.  



Well, that's what've I've been working on this week ... 10 minutes here, 15 minutes there until I finished it.


I added this decorative stitch on each sleeve and to the hem to dress it up a bit. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. I've enjoyed turning my thrift store sheet into what I think is a lovely garment ... and all it cost me was $2.98.

What have you stitched up lately?

    1. I did use a pattern Angela, it was a blouse pattern that I extended to the length I wanted. It is See & Sew pattern # B5480. And yes, it is super soft!

  3. Today I made curtains out of a set of plaid flannel sheets. They're for a son's room in our new home. I had bought the sheets on sale a long time ago and then never used them. Now we have twin xl beds for the boys and these sheets no longer fit the beds. But they look great as curtains! Plus the pillow case is for a second pillow on the bed and it coordinates with the navy blue sheets and comforter.

  4. I had a client who wanted me to cut up some of her grandmother's quilts to bind into smaller quilts to give her great granddaughters for Christmas. How scary to make the actual cuts!!! But here's how one of them turned out (there will be 3 more just like it from that particular quilt) !

    1. gardenpat, you did a very good job on the quilt. I would have been scared to make the actual cuts too! Do you have pictures of the doll clothes?

    2. Thanks, Patsy! I forgot to take photos of the doll clothes before I gave them to my granddaughter for her birthday! I'll try to remember with the next batch! I found an actual book that had master patterns for an 18" doll so I will be doing more for 3 of my granddaughters! Got the book with a 50% off coupon so it was a lot cheaper than buying individual patterns!!!

    3. Gardenpat, can you share the name of book?

  8. I am just learning how to sew and am trying my hand at making simple things so I really like to see what more experienced sewers do and get ideas that way. I like how you've turned the sheet into something new for yourself. It looks great! Meg:)

    1. Thank you Meg! Starting out with simple things that you enjoy is the way to teach yourself to sew. Youtube has lots of tutorials to offer as well. I wish you much success in learning your new skill!

  10. Now that is just lovely! I like that bit of decorative stitching too. It's that little something extra that makes it look nicely finished.

  11. Hi Patsy, I was inspired by your post and had a pretty sheet from the Thrift store so I purchased the pattern you used and made myself a nightgown. The sheeting is so comfortable to sleep in! Thanks for all you do to inspire us.
