For any of you who have read my blog in the past two months, you know that it is a big deal when I say that I began and completed a sewing project this weekend. Of course I completely forgot about pictures until this morning, so I will try to get some up in the next few days. I made two throw pillows for a friend who has impecable taste and a knack for finding absolutely gorgeous and posh fabrics. Pictures to come.
I also took on another project. My hair stylist is getting married in a few months, and as part of the gift she’ll be giving to her bridesmaids, I am going to be making some cosmetic bags. Nothing really fancy, just some simple zipper pouches that incorporate her wedding colors (pink, green and yellow). I am using the three fabrics on the left for the outer fabrics of the pouches and the wavy fabric on the right for the interior lining of each pouch. I ordered the fabric this weekend, so once it comes in I will pick up some coordinating zippers and start sewing this one! I really enjoy making these little pouches, and am excited to have a “large” order (12) to work on.
Finally, I am going to attempt to make some more napkins–my other favorite sewing projects. Joann’s had a sale over the weekend, and I picked up several fabrics. This lemon print by Alexander Henry is by far my favorite. I wish I had purchased the entire roll! The original intention was to use half for my own napkins and half for a gift set, but now I’m backing down on the second half of that. I may just keep all of it and make a new table runner for my table to go with the napkins. It needs some sunshine and lemons!
