Default Sewing?

I know a few people do it.... So what are your favourite things to make?

I just got a new sewing machine, and omg I'm addicted LOL I made a dog bed (it was gonna be for the ferrets but it's too big for them and too small for Rosey), and am going to make some bandanas with leftover fabric. Now I'm trying to figure out what else I could make, haha. Oh, I'm going to try a quilt once I get supplies for it, and crate covers are one the que waiting to be figured out.

I sew buttons and seams and the occasional hem. the last item I made with a sewing machine was a pillow in 8th grade home economics. But it was a pretty cool pillow

I do alot of hemming for my inlaws and SIL's ha ha.

I've sewn pretty much everything back in the day, I've have not really started up again in a long time. I think the last thing I sewed was some dog collars.

Although I do get the bug once in a while.

I sew when I need something, not just sewing for sewing's sake. The last thing I did was make the crate covers for the boys. Dog beds, taking in clothes, fixing rips and stuff... just whatever I need to do.

I use to sew a lot. Now not so much and since moving I don't have my machines here with me. So I've been crocheting because its portable and doesn't take up a lot of space.

Clothing. I've done household things like curtains when I needed them, but I don't enjoy those. Even with clothing I don't LIKE the actual process, it's the making exactly what I want, the outcome that I'm after. If I'm working on something I've been known to not sleep until I get it done.

Aprons and totes are my favorite things to make. Also, other little projects like oven mitts, window valances, yoga mat bags, etc. I got this book called "One Yard Wonders" for xmas with tons of cute little projects you can make from one yard of fabric. I use it a lot.
