Just wondering if anyone here sews? If yes, what do you like to sew (clothes, random projects, quilts, etc.?)

 

I have a few projects I'm working on. Mostly boring stuff like hemming pants. But I do like to make quilts. Contemporary ones. 

 

Tell us what you like to sew!

I sew some... I like making pillows, stuffed animals and doll clothes. My grandmother lives really close and sews a lot of our family's clothes. Sometimes I'll make doll clothes to send to some of my relatives that I'm somehow related to... Once my grandmother and I made comfort dolls to send to women and children in shelters. I would choose the hair and fabric and help put everything together. I've been helping her to sew for as long as I can remember, whether it's by holding the fabric on the sewing machine or hand-stitching random scraps to a zipper becuase I feel like it at age 4 or cutting and measuring everything and sewing the seams with little help threading the machine today!

My mom and I sew, mostly her. She sews a lot, mostly shirts. All I've sewn is a pillow case, a bag, two doll dresses, a pillow, and I'm working on a skirt. My grandma also sews. My mom is working on a apron for her job at Church, working in the kitchen. I've also sewn a baby blanket.
