I'm really enjoying learning to sew! I've been working on cards and paper crafts too. I'll have some of those up soon.
My little girl has been wanting a snuggie/slanket/sort of thing made with cupcakes so I got some fabric 30% off at Hobby Lobby and gave it a shot. That is so easy. It's literally sewing a few straight lines, cutting arm holes and sewing the sleeves in. Oh if only making clothing were so easy! Anyway, we had a little scrap left and it seems like everyone we know is having a baby, so we put those scraps to good use.
Using a Ribbon Blankie tutorial we used ribbon scraps and fleece scraps to make this blankie. Of course, you know I had to put a twist on it. I put one of my pacifier clips on one corner so not only will this blankie be a soft toy for a baby to chew on and play with, it will also keep that pacifier handy.
It's fleece on both sides, I just pinned the ribbon and went to sewing around it. Turned it out and hand stitched hte opening closed. I'm not totally comfortable with top stitching yet. I like my uneven stitching to be hidden. lol! So do you think this sewing thing is working out for me or should I just give up?
