Inspiration Workshop Week #1

So Gussy Sews is one of my fave blogs. Not only does she make gorgeous bags of all types, and write fun and interesting blog posts, she also never ceases to inspire me!

She's started a link party that I had to join in on! This week's prompt:

"This week's prompt, in true Gussy fashion, is everything HANDMADE. A great way to kick off the Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!, right?!  Do you have a favorite blanket that your grandmother knitted for you? Does your child play with a HANDMADE toy? What about that construction paper and macaroni creation on your refrigerator? What do you make or want to make?"

Just about everything handmade inspires me!

Like the other night I was wandering through Michaels ("A dangerous past time.""I know." Name that movie). I got all sorts of butterflies in my belly! I wanted to create everything in sight!

Or just now I was folding Marie's pajama pants and was filled with the desire to make her a pair myself!

You know, something like this:
Polka Dot Ruffle Pants...Sizes...6m,12m, 18m, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6
Found HERE
Or maybe I'll whip up something like this:
Noodles and Milk Sewing Pattern -Tutorial PDF DIY -Kinley Lounge Pants-Sizes 6mo to 5t
Found HERE
I guess I should probably learn how to sew first...

Anyway, I'm also inspired when I finish a big jewelry project. I spent hours working on these sets for a wedding:

And as soon as I was finished, I wanted to spend hours making more!

((I don't think the hubby would have been thrilled.))

What handmade sumthin' inspires you??
