The Object Project – Sewing Projects

This being back from vacation is brutal.  Teaching all my classes this week after not doing a whole lot wasn’t too fun….and is it possible to gain weight in one butt check?  Because my shorts have felt crooked all day……..no matter how many times I adjust them.

 

On with the feature………..The Object Project is one of those amazing sewing blogs.  I’m sure the author, Leigh Ann started sewing when she was 3.   She’s like one of those great cooks that never follows a recipe……but with sewing and making her own patterns.   She’ll make you jealous……..I’m warning you now.

Her tutorials are to die for……..they even make ME feel like I may be able to  do them.  ME!  What I love the most about her tutorials is seeing the everyday objects she uses for making her projects.  LOL  Get it?  (objects……projects……)

She’s a pure sewing genius.  For instance, this little owl coloring sheet may be her inspiration………sewing craftsA little bit of paper piecing………hey I used to do that back in the day of scrapbook paper piecing…….back in the day when I scrapbooked.  :) sewing projectsChoose her fabric………6a01156f2b6799970c0115706a4b66970b-800wiAnd made a cute little owl wash buddy……….the full tutorial is on her site.sewing projects

Not only can she make her own patterns…….look at the drawings she does to design a bag.  Holy heck Martha…….I would frame that.

Love the fabric choices….sewing crafts bagThis is what I was talking about………in her tutorials, she’ll use household items for her measuring templates.  Cracks me up.6a01156f2b6799970c011570795013970b-800wiLittle purse……..it looked simple too.  It’s nice having her give you so many details in her tutorials.6a01156f2b6799970c011570794f46970b-800wiI don’t remember what this tutorial is for……….I just liked the Starbucks cup….feeling a bit Starbucks deprived after my 2 weeks in Utah.  (which by the way if you want to follow my vacation wrap up and who wouldn’t, you can view it on my personal site.)6a01156f2b6799970c0115705f22b6970b-800wi

Oh……here we go.  This is what she was doing with those scraps……she makes fabric corsages.  Cute.

She has all her tutorials listed on the side bar making it very very easy to navigate.  So I guess she’s organized too.  :)

You’ll find things such as this doodle bird………a cock a doodle bird.  I thought it was pretty funny….some of you may not think so.  But what a great “gag” gift for someone…….not sure who, but someone.  Good thing I can’t sew……..everyone would be getting these for Christmas.
