I received three packages this week, and the biggest one was a total surprise! Brandon’s great-aunt sent me a box full of goodies. There were books (pictured above), patterns, notions, fabrics, and even a mini rotary cutter and a pair of Gingher Embroidery Scissors. That was so thoughtful of her! I probably will not be making any silk and fur coats, but I am so thankful for everything she sent! I can’t wait to use it! Here is what my table looked like after I unloaded the box:
And yes, I did clean up all of that mess before starting on all of my projects! My poor hubby would not have enjoyed coming home to that!
I finally had the chance to make something I have been wanting to do for a while: burp cloths. I made some for two friends who are having a joined baby shower on Saturday. I used some Robert Kaufman Corduroy with little apples sewn onto Gerber pre-fold cloth diapers. These are so cute and (I hope) very practical. At first I wasn’t sure about the corduroy, but the grooves are so fine that it feels really luxorious. I am sure any baby will love having his or her face all over that! I bought extras of all of the material, so I am putting some of these in my shop as well.
Finally, during the VP debate, I made some more bobby pin sets. The other two packages I received this week included the materials for the bobby pins and the magnets I make. Here are the bobby pin sets:
Tonight I hope to be just as productive. I will be trying my hand at applique to make a onesie to go with each of the burp cloth sets. I am also going to start an order that Brandon’s mom placed for a baby shower she is going to soon.
