School's almost out!!! My dog is behaving!! It's time to start crafting/blogging again. I have been making things... just haven't had the time to post. Today I have some shower gifts to show you! A good friend of mine is pregnant with her first baby and she and I are both musicians.... I found some very cute music fabric! =)
These are made with flannel on one side and chenille on the other. After looking through many tutorials I decided on the size of 8 inches by 18 inches. I simply sewed them right sides together, and rounded corners. I left a hole for turning. Turned them inside out and topstitched! wahoo!
I know its kind of a 'pukey' green color, but I couldn't resist the monkeys! I figure if he pukes peas on it then it will match. =)
I think I finally figured out how I want to make these. I basically did the same thing as I do for my tote bag straps. See the tutorial here. I did put some interfacing inside for a bit of stability. I also basted the loops before folding all of the fabric up. I cut the fabric about 10 inches by 3-3/4 inches.
I love these clips! They are plastic coated on the inside. I completed the finished strap, slid the clip on and then stitched it down.
I think they came out pretty well!!!
I whipped up another Taggie Blanket. See my tutorial here. I bought this adorable panel this summer. I was very excited to use it. I sewed some mustardy fabric I had to frame the panel.
Blue swirly soft furry fabric for the back always works perfectly.
Yes, the pictures were all taken in a hurry. It was raining so my skylights didn't help with lighting. AND I didn't have time to clean. yuck. Someday my craftroom will have a photography 'area' or something.....
It's still rainy today. Seems like a good day for sewing!
