You Can Sew a Simple Skirt

Today on Sew Krazy… I taught my viewers how to make an apron skirt! You can watch the replay of it here:

Catch me every Saturday at 11am EST on MomTV!

The skirt I made today doesn’t require a pattern. Just some simple measuring. The instructions are similar to the ones I’m going to post for you. The difference is… I sew on a separate waistband in order to attach my apron.

The instructions I’m posting here, are for a simple single seam A-line skirt. It’s a fantastic beginner’s project! Enjoy!

How Do You Pink?

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I’m thrilled to tell you about a fun blog carnival called “How Do You Pink?” I’m sharing my Pink post on Fridays with Cheryl Budge of The Budge Bunch.

I participate in an ongoing Skype chat with an amazing group of women. The conversation turned to Breast Cancer Awareness Month and what we could do to bring awareness on our blogs. Many ideas were tossed around and it eventually settled on the cute tag line: How Do You Pink?

This is how I pink:

I Pink by planning… a couple of years ago… I found a lump in my breast. It was very scary… I was 28 and my doctor was calling for an ultrasound, a mamogram, and an MRI. In the end it turns out that it was some sort of fiberous mass that I would have checked out again the next year.

So far nothing of any danger has materialized from this lump… but now I plan. I do a monthly breast exam in my home and each year when I visit my gynocologist, we also spend extra time checking my breasts.

Take a cue from my pink calendar and start doing some pink planning of your own!


Make sure you go and check out all of these wonderful ladies and see how they PINK!
