Sewing is something that I have always wanted to do, but was always too afraid to do it. In Home Ec class, we were always told horror stories of some girl that the needle went right through her thumb nail. It scared me, just a little.
So the photo above is my first project since I don't know when. 🙂 My friend, Michelle and I worked on it for what seemed like forever. The crazy thing about this carseat canopy is that we didn't even have a pattern. We had to make our own.
These are the yo-yos that we put on it.
This is our second project. Michelle and I did this one as well. Long story short. A friend of ours was pregnant with her third child. She had picked out all of this fabric to make a rag quilt, but had misplaced it. I went to her house, found it, brought it home and we whipped that thing out in a few days.
Here is the back of it.
Please pardon the blurry photo.
That quilt was a lot of fun to work on, and in fact it is the first project made on my new sewing machine.
Several days before the baby was born we learned that the 1956 bassinet needed a new cover. So, we whipped this thing out in a few days. Here again, we did not have a pattern, but between the two of us (mostly Michelle) we got it done.
This was the last project completed, my chenille potholder. I love this thing, and it was so easy to make! We use it all the time. Making the potholder out of homespun fabric, and cutting it with the Olfa chenille cutter was easy. The best part about the whole thing was washing it to see the homemade chenille.
So there ya go. I have several more projects to get started on, but won't be able to post photos for a while. They are going to be gifts, and I kind of want them to be a surprise! I knew you'd understand.
What are you working on?
