September is National Sewing Month

Here we are again. September is National Sewing month! Do you sew? Would you like to learn to sew? How old were you when you started sewing? I've been sewing since I was about 10 or 12 years old, but recently I seem to be on break from much sewing, so I'm thinking this would be a good month to get myself back into gear and start sewing and creating again.





Here's a simple outline of a girl hand sewing that would be cute done up in redwork.


And a neat old calendar with children sewing.


In honor of National Sewing Month I will offer my Vintage Sewing Ephemera CD found at Patternmart for only 4.00 postage paid.

And here's a few links to some fun sewing projects around the net.....

Folk Art Needlecase

Mill House Inn Tote Bag

Prairie Flower Pincushion

Sewing Caddy

Over 50 Free Apron Patterns

Slippers

And speaking of slippers check out this great charity challenge for sewing slippers



Oh there's just so much more to sew out there, so quick!, grab a needle and thread and create something fun today!

I didn't know this was sewing month! I learned to sew at a young age because I was always in love with crafting. I went on to sew my own clothes, but in recent years don't sew very much. My love of knitting and crochet sort of took it's place. I do get the 'itch' sometimes to sew something though. I love the old calendar you showed and the girl sewing. You're right, it would be beautiful done in redwork. Have a nice week! Twyla
