I don’t really know how to sew. I keep meaning to read a book or take a class, but both of those sound like a serious infringement upon time I could be playing video games. Imagine me weighing the options in either hand. Video games? Sewing? VIDEO GAMES.

Anywho, my ignorance of sewing and love of video games have not prevented me from buying tons and tons of rad fabrics that I am so sure I will use one day. To maintain some semblance of control and/or storage space, I have recently limited myself to purchasing only from the fabric remnants bin. This way, I know I’m only getting a wee bit of a fabric (less of an impact on my storage space), I’m spending less money (most stores discount fabric remnants), and I get to be all MacGuyver about whatever I end up making (improvising a project with whatever materials are close at hand).

What I did with this particular batch of fabrics requires absolutely no skills whatsoever. But, in addition to the fabrics themselves, I did whip out the sewing machine at two points and I also purchased these awesome plastic slide buckles. I can’t remember where I purchased these particular buckles, but you can find similar buckles on M&J Trim and eBay.

I did the obvious thing, of course, and made scarf-type things. [I love scarves. You may have read that I think scarves are essential to human survival.] Obvious and simple, yes, but I am still quite happy with the results. Check them out behind the cut. Read the rest of this entry »
