adventures in sewing...and a cool tshirt necklace (that did not involve sewing)

It's been a while since I've been here. Honestly, now that I am graduated and still job hunting I really should be better about blogging consistently. So I'm just going to jump back into it today!

My aunt gave me a 1951 Singer Sewing Machine! It is beautiful. I'm really excited to make stuff with it. (Which is a big deal for me, because generally I steer clear of any kind of sew that involves a machine.)

I started making a really simple and cute wallet...of course the bobbin got messed up and I am currently waiting on my mom to fix it because I tried everything I could think of.

Yesterday I wasn't exactly feeling good. So I spent the day cutting up old tshirts and made this necklace that I kinda LOVE! It did take me all day, but I wasn't feeling good and I was just making it up as I went along. There are tons of tutorials for similar necklaces on Pinterest that wouldn't take very long at all. So if you have old tshirts laying around this would be a super cute way to recycle them!

I turned all of these strips into this!

I really love it. I can't wait to go to my parents and find some more tshirts that I never wear :-).

Other than that, I've been looking for work and planning my wedding. It's a crazy wonderful life.
