I think learning many of the lost skills of our past are very frugal. You can save yourself and family a lot of moola and have some one of a kind keepsakes and gifts. Not to mention usable gifts!
This summer Farm Girl has a had a friend (lets call her Cutie Pie) and her mom over for sewing lessons. Cutie Pie is a lot like Farm Girl in that she took right to sewing! They've made homemade pillow cases out of sheets. Then the embroidered their names and cute little scenes on them.
Our next project, which we completed last night was Ruffle Aprons.
Okay, maybe just a bit. When the work was done they had some of our favorite mini ice cream cones and tried on their creation. Cutie Pie was fixing her hair for the camera
Here's the proud seamstress'. Don't they look cute?
Cutie Pie and her Mom. Mrs. Cutie Pie now is a great seamstress!
