Good Sunday morning everyone!! well it seems much cooler this morning..kind of overcast..but that is okay in my book..we are supposed to be 77 degrees today and tomorrow cooler at 65 with a shower or two...we can always use the rain..well yesterday was a great sewing day..This photo above is a BEFORE... I made a sleeve for the rolling pin...
Here is the AFTER photo...I was inspired by Firecracker kid..and I had that wonderful rolling pin to work with..so I dug through my fabric stash and found the piece I wanted to use..
I printed up my tags onto my fabric sheets got 4 on a sheet..going to make more of these and put them on my etsy..but gotta search for some more rolling pins...I stitched this onto the fabric and then handstitched in on the back in kind of an X fashion..I love how it turned out and now my little rack is complete...I ordered one more item from Carol last night..it is going on my peg board where my blanket crane is..it is a primitive wooden sconce...:) and I am doing a swap with Kimberly of My brown bag studio and a new quilt will go up there in place of the other quilt I have...will post those when I get them and show you the finished product..I can't wait...I love how my home is becoming just the way I love it..its finally come into its own with the help of some wonderfully talented folks out there..wouldn't have been possible had I not started blogging..I can't believe where my blogging journey has taken me..but I have met some truly wonderful guys and gals and look so forward to hearing and chatting with you..I feel like I have met you in person..and really hope to someday...:) blogging has opened up so many opportunities, etc and the giveaways are so much fun...where else could you do this..well maybe facebook..but I love this blogging thing...stay tuned..cause I am doing another giveaway by the end of the month...:)
Okay now for the rest of the program...I am making "nursing Covers" for nursing moms and have 3 completed and 2 more almost done..as you can see in the top photo..they "bow" out at the top so you can see baby while you are nursing..but you are completely covered so you aren't "exposing yourself" to the world..and baby doesn't feel smothered..:)
below are the fabrics I am using so far..but I have about 5 more I want to make using different fabrics.;)
I am trying to come up with a catchy name for these..here are some I have come up with..so if you can think of any I haven't thought of please let me know..
Milk bar Covers
Hooter hiders Apron
meal time apron or cover
