i can't sleep for the second or third night in a row. ugh. too much going on in my head...
i have my sewing machine back, so i've been messing around on it, which is sometimes frustrating but fun.
last night i made a bag. it's quite a funky bag out of some place mats and a tacky old tie. it's the perfect bag to sling over your body and carry the necessities. remember the place mats, karen?
tonight i made gracie a pillowcase dress out of a pillowcase from a yard sale this weekend. this is about the only thing i can make. here's some good directions on how to make one. you would think a former engineer could handle sewing with patterns, but i don't have the patience to even try.
i have an extra pillowcase & fitted sheet if anyone wants it!
here's my first "big" project i've sewn. i made a comforter for gracie's big girl bed someday. it's scrap chenille pieces & an old sheet of my grandparents is the backing. i used yo-yos to tie my knots in the comforter for some extra pizazz. there is a lot of character, aka mistakes on this blanket. but it was made with a bunch of love.
well, off to try & get some sleep...nighty night!
