So I have been back into the groove lately and it is so much FUN!
One of the firsts project I made were a few pincushions out of scraps from the flying geese block I made Nettie in my Bee Inspired group. I just LOVE the way they turned out. I am thinking of making a few of these to give to my Bee Inspired friends when my month comes up (not for a while). I think it will be a nice thank you gift to the group.
I also made a cute little hat for my nephew. Haven't been able to see it on him yet but I am sure he will look adorable, I am somewhat biased you know.
I got the pattern on etsy and it was super easy! I might be making a few more of these guys for him.
I also copied an idea from a friend Laura. I volunteer for her at DC Threads once a month. Two months ago she made the volunteers wonderful pattern weights. Since I have gotten a little into sewing clothes (and not just quilts) they have come very much in handy. I have been wanting to make my mom a set and I finally got around to doing so. I think she is going to like the brown and blue ribbons.
*They are really easy to make if you are interested in making some for yourself. Just buy inexpensive 2 in. metal washers at your local hardware store and wrap them up with fun ribbon. You put a dap of hot glue at the beginning and end of the ribbon and voila!!
The last thing I have made in the past couple of days were some burp cloths. I had some coordinating fabric scraps from placemats that I made a while ago and finally found a use for them. I sewed a thick strip of different scraps together and sewed it to the center of some cloth diapers. They were easy to make and I am sure my sister will find it very useful as my nephew is going through his teething phase.
I feel so productive! I think I am going to really enjoy June :)
hope you are feeling productive this week as well.
take care mucho,
