Hooray! Some finished projects to share with you...
A sneak peak at my Craft Hope project!
All that's left for this project is the store bought stuff!
This is a pin cushion using a baby food jar. Another idea I got in my head somehow and have been looking and looking for something to put in the jar. Found these little birds at Michael's and they are perfect!
I'm semi-happy with how it turned out. Needs some work on the top portion. I think I'm going to try to make a felt pin cushion top for the next one and see if that goes better. This top is just some stuffing in a circle of fabric that is gathered at the bottom into a big poof. Then I had the problem of covering up the rim of the lid. I think felt will be better over all.
And this poor apron was started over a year ago. It is for a friend and was supposed to be a housewarming present. She's been living in her apartment for over a year now! I was working on the ties when my last sewing machine seized up on me and I got so frustrated I went to hand sewing for a long time. I had already started this with machine sewing, so I wanted to finish it that way. Better late than never, I guess. The base is half of a pillowcase that my mom found and the pocket is made from a vintage sheet (I embroidered the A for Ali on it!).
My friend Andee (that is doing Craft Hope with me) has a little interview with me today, you can see it here. I'll be interviewing Andee in April, so look for that here soon!
