Becoming obsessed with my hobby

These days I find myself thinking about sewing, constantly. I would be sitting watching TV or riding down the ride and I am designing or modifying a pattern to update a look. I have recently discovered African Print Fashion. The two photos above are what I am working on now.

I have found several sites where I can get fabric. I have several patterns that I can modify for the dresses, blouses, coats, jackets, etc. I am truly obsessed with this. I still make American Girl clothes, on occasion, or if I granddaughter or niece ask me. Recently, I purchased a mini sewing machine for my truck, so when I stop to take my break, I can sew for 2 hours before going to bed. I use it mainly for the doll clothes but I have used it to make a blouse.

I am in process of trying to set up my room for my sewing, which is looking pretty cluttered right now. I realize the room is not as big as I imagined it, so adding another table won’t work. I just recently purchased another dress form, smaller one for those who are not plus sized. I may need a larger one as well.

My latest projects.
