|The pattern pieces|
I like to sew but it takes me a long time since I'm so new to it. Usually what happens is I get in to a groove.....I get motivated and I run through an entire project from start to finish.
If I have to let it sit for a day or two, I find I don't have the time to get back to it (as the half completed knitting needle caddy is a testament to. :-( )
My niece is expecting her first baby in about three weeks. Well, new babies are the best excuse for making things. LOTS of things. I really have to be careful here. I could go a little nutzo and before you know it this child will have an entire wardrobe courtesy of me. Luckily I'm too busy. Imagine that, busy-ness saves me from insanity.....not sure that that's not a bunch of b.s. but we'll go with it for now!
But I did use aforementioned expected child as an excuse to practice my sewing.
I found a pattern for a simple but very cute bib. I bought a yard of fabric and was able to make three (with some fabric saved out to make one for my hope chest as well!)
|OMG have you seen these? Thread with pop top thread end holders, I was impressed! I impress easily.|
|An update from my old clunker, my husbands machine, it's nice.|
|Iron, iron, iron, love your iron if you sew and love it more with lavender water sprayed on everything!|
|Who knew bias tape could make things look so cool? Yup, beginner seamstress here!|
|Inside out, don't forget to leave a hole in the seam to flip it rightside out!|
|Another one in a different fab|
|All three! It took me a lot of time but it was a great project for a beginner like me, hope my niece likes them!|
