Long time no post. Ok, so it's only been a week. I've been working on projects and practicing my sewing....
First, I recovered some pillows. The striped pillows were for the couch and the truck pillow was for L. He tends to use them all anyway. I didn't really have a pattern for these. I just sewed two fat quarters together then fastened them with velcro. The day after I finished, I found tutorials for envelope pillows. Wish I had found that before!
Then I got to work on first birthday presents for a friend's baby. I covered a stretched canvas with this fabric. I made one for L while I had the glue gun out, but haven't taken a picture of that one yet.
I was going to buy a little toy to go with it, until I saw a tutorial for a felt and fabric colors book and decided to make that too. This was the most time consuming project of the week. It took 3 evenings and part of a Saturday. There's lots of prep to it, but it's super cute.
Saturday afternoon I got a Mommy reprieve as J took L to the beach for a few hours. So I decided to try making the One Yard Tote.
Finally, since I can't stand the little tomato pin cushion (it's too hard to get the pins in and out) I decided to try my hand at the no sew pin cushion. I didn't glue it down, but it's much easier. I couldn't resist using this mug with the coordinating dog fabric.
So that was last week in a nutshell! We're on vacation this week. Daycare is closed so we're mostly hanging around here and going to the beach. I have a lot of projects lined up for this week as well as working up some posts since I've been to busy sewing to write.
