Since i had not been able to sew much in the past several months, my sewing table somehow got piled with junk. I discovered some of my sewing things had gotten knocked into the trash can. (Looks like i need to move that trash can!) lol I decided it was time to clean off my sewing table and get back to sewing! In addition i am trying to get my space better organized. My sewing area is in my bedroom, which i share with dh. lol Well, it is more like i let him sleep in there. My sewing stuff is taking up most of the room. I have most of my fabric in the basement... but dd#1 has taken over much of that space...sigh...and i cant hardly get to it. That is what happens when you have 7 people living in a shoebox. lol
I decided to start small and do a few quick projects. When i was done i realized they weren't so quick. lol I had picked up this Curious George fabric really cheep when Joann's was liquidating. I was going to make something fun for my 2yo. He loved playing with the fabric and using it for a blanket just as it was. I ended up getting more CG fabric during liquidation and made this quick blanket for him. He was confused at first because i took his *2* blankets and gave back *1*!
The time consuming part came when i decided to put his name along the edge. It turned out really cute though and he really likes it!!!
I had also purchased some baby fabric to make some baby blankets. I decided to start with this one. I just loved this fabric! To bad my baby dd is 6yo and a little old for baby fabric. Luckily i knew someone that just had a baby girl! So one day soon i will be sending this off to the littel sweetie! I hope she likes it as much as i do! :o)
I also put a little more time into this one and stitched her name with hearts. It really is adorable!
I am going to do more cleaning today and think about my next project! :o)
