I'm in Heaven. This is the cutest little thing EVER. I am so proud of my little project that I made during Peanut's nap today. It took me a little longer than naptime but Daddy's home and he let me finish. I did things like make box corners and bias tape for this one. Wow! I didn't have a clue but the awesome tutorial that I followed was wonderful. I think I want to crank out a bunch of these. They are perfect for gifts and baby nurseries and such. So, so, so, so cute and really not too hard. You can find the tutorial here at the Pink Penguin blog.
I have had so many of you comment about having sewing machines but not sewing. Pull that puppy out, dust it off and try. I sewed in high school for home economics class. Then around 2001 my mother-in-law helped me start a quilt for our bed but I never finished. Her mom actually finished it up for me, then mama-in-law quilted it. So it was kind of nice....all of our hands worked on it. But I haven't sewed since! And now I look forward to making things. It may be the newness of it all but there is something so rewarding about making something with your own hands.
I know a great teacher if any of you want one! She is my personal sewing trainer! Ha!
