Week 2, Project 3 and a First.






National Sewing Month is halfway over and I have had the privilege of completing 10 projects in just 2 weeks. The following pictures are of project #10. This was started on Saturday night. I spent a couple of hours on printing, cutting, pinning, cutting again, interfacing and cutting appliques... again. Only to realize at 10:30 p.m. that I did not have the correct color of thread to sew them on with. How disappointing :( At about 9 a.m. on Sunday morning, I ran over to Walmart (again!) and found the perfect thread. I was able to knock out the project before lunchtime! And I am so happy I did. I absolutely love, love, love this blanket. It is soooo comfy, without being bulky and I think the 10 year old girl I made it for is going to be as in love with it as I am. I was told she loves pink and cheetah print, so this is what I came up with - My First Appliques!!




So what did I learn with this project?? Don't applique with material that stretches! Seriously, how many times can I learn my lesson.. before I actually learn it?! I am really tempted to make one of these for each of my kids for Christmas. I think they'd be something really special that Andrew, Kaitlynn and Mitchell would love for years to come!

How is National Sewing Month going for all of you???

The blanket looks very nice.
