to get the parts that I needed for today's Sew Saturday, is that I tend to get a little sidetracked. My plan was to work on a baby blanket. In fact, I did work on a baby blanket...but not without a few distractions.
yo-yo's and yo-yo's and hours and hours of more yo-yo's.
I made this over 12 years ago. I remember because I wore it to my shower for Allan. Remember...everything timewise is measured by our children.
I wore it when I was 13 months pregnant. For my shower. This is a biiiiiiig pile of yo-yo's.
edited to add the photo of it in full - it's a vest. Not necessarily a maternity one---it just happened to fit. Yo-yo overkill.
I don't want to just pitch it. I want to make it into something else. It's not really fashionable anymore.
And then I found this piece. For my boxes of fabric..this is a bigger piece than what I normally have. I could almost back something with it. I love this fabric. Time to start thinking on what I want to do with it. Curtains? maybe. I've been wanting a summer curtain in the living room for awhile...
And this. *sigh* I heart this pile. This is going to be next weeks project. I think it will be a smaller bag for Brian. He needs a bag. I have a belt that I'm planning to use for the handle.
Want a closer look at that fabric?
Oh yes...that's most definitely a girl. You know what..this isn't going to work for a bag for Brian. I don't think he'd fancy a bag with a girl on it. This bag is going to have to be mine. Oh darn.
Finally I found my way to the project I had intended to work on
And I worked on it. I made a little girl blanket for my gift stash. I hadn't intended to line this one, but the grey shows right thru - so I put in a thin lining.
But I think it still needs something else...I'm not sure what. It just doesn't look, 'done' know what I mean? So I'm letting it sit for a bit. Until Monday. ;)
Did you sew today?
