I don't do much of our sewing at all. I love sewing, but feel overwhelmed just to think of getting everything out and having another mess to deal with! I did buy some fabric the other day to make a pillowcase for my niece. I find that with sales, sometimes the fabric price isn't too outrageous. Depends on sales and what you're making. Jeans are pretty tricky to sew and have look good. My mom took a course on sewing jeans, but they still always looked so homemade! She's an amazing seamstress and sews a lot, especially dresses and special occasion stuff. She sewed my wedding gown, and made up the pattern too, to get it just as we wanted. Someday I'll be like my mom!
