Hi.... I'm a life-long crafter, sewer, and learner. Technology is getting so awesome and exposing me to so much terrific stuff that I don't think I'll ever get all I want to try done. But I'll keep trying.
Hello, I was also able to do some sewing this weekend. I entered a potholder into a potholder contest sponsored by http://www.prudentbaby.com/ . The winner will receive a sewing machine and they are giving away 2 machines. You can enter as many times as you wish. The potholder I entered was one hanging in my kitchen now that I made when I was a teenager for my hope chest.
I've got another one to enter already made, but it is stored in the shed and I can't get to it by myself. I made it when I was sewing quilt squares into potholders. Blue jeans was my next choice of material. I cut the backseat out of a pair and serged bandana print around it, used flannel for the inside and more denim for the back. I saw this idea on another site. You can slide your hand into the back pocket. I also embroidered a design on the back pocket (after an hour of ripping the thread out). I have no idea what the judges will like so I'm going to send a variety. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.
Joey was with me on Saturday and we decided to make a few things for his mother for Valentines Day. I already had a kitchen towel with multicolor stripes. I used those colors to put hearts and "Best Mommy" on it. I also have several black with light gray polka dots and pink trim cosmetic bags. I embroidered a L in curlz font in light pink with black dots. Both turned out pretty cute. At least Joey liked them.
Another busy weekend. I should get my new sewing machine by Friday. I can't wait!!!!! I've got one project to finish and more to start.
Oh, I also sent Mainstreet Milledgeville a few pictures to see if they will let me enter some of my wares in their Milledgeville in the Arts for First Fridays. Maybe I'll sell a few things there. At least it doesn't cost anything. No loss but time.
