This weekend I would like to finish up some of the projects I have started. I have a habit of starting a ton of things at once instead of doing one project from start to finish...I'm so ADD. I've mentioned in a previous post that I am like this...and that I get bored easily..(ADD), so this is why. Plus, I feel like there are so many things I want to sew so I start something, read about something else, get excited, and then start something new....It is what it is!
This morning I have cut everything for my Giveaway Bag and the Matching Wallet. All I need to do is sew it..YAY!!
I also need to finish my Step-Mother's Birthday gift...It's mostly cut. I cut 2 of the pieces an inch too short and need to go to the fabric store for more fabric. That way I can actually finish. I really should not cut anything when I'm dog tired, cause that's when mishaps happen :0(
I REALLY need to finish this one, and have it mailed on Monday. Her B-day is the 5th...so....Wednesday. I think this is feasible. Hopefully it will make it to Vegas in time.
I have also cut, and pinned 3 crayon rolls. These are Christmas gifts..one for my son Devin, and one for each of his boy cousins. It is race car fabric I found in my fabric stash :0) Don't you love finding something in you stash you forgot. It was perfect because I thought I'd have to buy some and I had the perfect fabric here!! It is the same print, but one is blue, one is black, and the other is red.
I also plan to start my friend Abbie's Christmas gift....she already know that I am making her Amy Butler's Birdie Sling, with Joel Dewberry's Chestnut Hill Fabric. Tho I think I need to order another fabric to go with what I have cause I am not 100% about the combo. She picked out the 3 she wanted together, but I dunno if she was 100% about the combo. The fact of the matter is that is all I had for this collection, so she didn't have a ton of options with the combo...we shall see!
I have some charm packs that I need to find something to do with....I am really interested in learning to quilt....I'm a little nervous about quilting. Don't ask why, I just am. But I am thinking of making a doll quilt for my daughter...and giving it to her for Christmas. I found a Tutorials for them HERE, and HERE. I will also be making a diaper for her doll. Diaper Tutorial can be found HERE. Fia keeps asking me for one of her diapers so she can put it on her baby dolls.
