Sew Crafty Friday
I decided to participate in Sew Crafty Friday this week. I hope to be able to every week, but sometimes things like kitchen remodels or dinner parties without a kitchen sink may get in the way. Not if I can help it, though!
Thanks to Shereen at Waiting for Him for hosting! Go check out the other crafty projects this week.
Here is what I was working on this past week. I actually only took 2 days of sewing for me, plus a day of cutting. Which isn't really too bad since I only worked after the big kids were in bed and that happens to be the time that Abby is the crankiest.
I just made up the pattern. I wanted it to be this size (about 30"x40"), so I looked through my trunk full of cloth that I inherited from a neighbor years ago and found some stuff that coordinated well. The cloth with the rabbits just really lent itself to this final layout. However, I completely ran out of fabric for that center square so I improvised. I found some white fabric and blue fabric paint and decided to put Abby's footprints on there. I like how it turned out.
While I was digging through the fabric, I found some totally adorable Noah's ark fabric in blues & browns and some matching brown fabric. Oh, man, I can't wait to turn that into a quilt. I hope I have a boy next!!
