Baby bunting

Simple personalised for a baby gift. Her big sister had a blankie with her name it so wanted to do something a bit different. No idea what decor her room has but it'll blend in or contrast!

Pattern weights & yarn

Today's sewing finishes are my cord weights and the t shirt yarn all ready for weaving. I need to thread up the loom and get going. Not sure which pattern I'll next be cutting out but the weights will be useful for cutting slippy quilting fabric too.

On the lap today

Its way past lap size now so I'm flattening off the edges with folded hexies. Its a very unweildy size now and I have lots of other lap pieces to get on with. I have an idea what I'm going to use it for.

Bodice lining

I'm doing some slippy fabric practice with a lined satin dress, I've done the dress in cotton first so I'm moving on to this. Super amounts of basting and I'm stabilising with tissue paper when I sew.

In the sewing room today

Its t shirt yarn time for my next project. Its a very satisfying activity making something out of useless old rubbishy t shirts, pj's etc. I need alot of yarn so will be doing 2 or 3 a day until the basket is full.
