The instructions called for walnut litter but since I didn't know where to get any of that, I used long grain rice and pillow stuffing. I didn't have any spray adhesive either, so I appliqued before sewing the owl bodies together. Lots of fun!
|A fun pincushion. Be sure to check out all the really neat pincushions on Flickr that folks have made. They are totally unbelievable. Mine is functional only, made of scraps of the cloth that I used this summer. But it was lots of fun to make, even if I DO keep forgetting to use it!|
Everybody needs a wrist pincushion! But do we really use them? This is from a free pattern that I downloaded from the internet - I just forget where! LOL!
I don't know who invented princess seams - they are SUCH a pain to put in, but really dress up a blouse. You can't see them in this picture, but they are really there. I'd never done cuffs before either. They turned out pretty decent even if the directions weren't very clear. I sorta muddled my way through.
|My VERY FIRST serged item! I knew that DH was going to create a sewing room for me. I wanted my fur babies to feel at home in there, so Karen at Bless My Stitches helped me pick out this really cute doggie flannel. It turned out a LOT bigger than I had thought that it would, but that's ok because all 3 of my babies can fit on it at one time. They were so funny the first time that I showed it to DH. I put it on our ottoman and all 3 of them jumped up and laid down on it immediately! "Mine, mine, mine," they said!|
