These past couple of weeks I have been working on a couple projects some turned out pretty good and of course I hit my bumps in the road.
The first was a quilt I started working on last summer, now this was before I had a sewing machine so I started it by hand and it wasn't turning out to good. I have never made a quilt by hand so I wasn't expecting it to be amazing but I was becoming frustrated and a little disappointed with it. And well I'm not the type of person to give up so easy I do try to find an alternative solution if something doesn't work out. So I thought well now that I have a sewing machine why not turn it into a sewing machine cover, so that's what I did. I was not going to let all that hard work go to waste!
My second project I made sure was a little easy, I guess you can say I needed to re-boost my self-esteem a little. I made pillows for our bed. I felt pretty good about this one because the fabric cost me $4.19 and I already had the stuffing so for 2 new decorative pillows I didn't have to pay $10-20 each and I always find great joy and satisfaction in knowing I saved myself some bucks!
Lastly, this project hmmm...... well let's just say it was fun and great practice!
I made an apron but I wanted to use some of the pieces of fabric my aunt sent me and went for this tie-dye kinda theme and I just wasn't pleased with the outcome. Can't really say what, I just think it lacks something. So anyways I'm sure I'll use it and make more but that's what I have been up to. Summer is almost over so I'm finishing these projects and will probably start new ones. Fall is on its way I can't wait its one of my favorite seasons!
