Ninth Street Notions

Howdy ladies! How fun is Spring Fling? Yesterday’s activity was How to Use Twitter. I met so many new tweeps!

Now for the real reason you came by- to support a SITStah!

Meet Amanda of Ninth Street Notions.

She’s done something still outstanding on my Bucket List- Learn to Sew.

I began teaching myself to sew last year, and I needed some place to share my projects. Thus began my blog, where I’ve found a great place to share crafty tutorials as well as recipes. Everything I share is easily created by a novice because guess what? I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m sharing it all on the blog.

Take a look at the beauties:
Why I Gave Up On Sewing
Cardamom Snickerdoodles Recipe {Yum}
How To Make an Envelope Clutch {SO CUTE}

And, there you have it.
Roll call below and then head over to see Amanda!

  6. Loved the clutch and how easily you broke everything down with pictures and easy to follow directions. I am not crafty so I appreciate when something is broken down in very easy to follow steps. Happy SITS day!

  23. Hey Amanda! There’s nothing like learning as you you go along. I love that you’re taking on sewing; something I never had the patience to sit through. I’m one of those… I like thee most complicated Vogue pattern imaginable AND I want to make it today (in a matter of an hour or two) and I want to wear it TONIGHT. Now you KNOW that’s not gonna work! So… see, I admire you for taking on sewing (thinkof the money that you’re saving… and I’m not).

    It’s gangster cool to eMeet you here on SITS and what’s even cooler is…

    Bravo to you!

  33. A while back I decided to make a list. One of the easier, but not yet mastered, things was to learn to hard boil an egg. It changed my life. (silly but true) I need to get a bit more daring. Can’t wait to read about someone else’s.
