So one of my goals before going back to work is to sew stuff. I had a home economics class in 8th grade where we made a pillow and I made a few things for barbie dolls when I was a kid. However, that's about all the sewing that I've done. I enjoyed learning how to sew better with the projects that I did this month.
At the associate store, they have had this fabric for several months. It was only $5 for 10 yards. That's a pretty good deal since usually that's how much it probably would have cost for about one yard. I'm happy it was good fabric. I've bought a few things there where the design pretty much all faded after I washed it. :(
So... what did I make?
ironing board cover
I can't find the original tutorial that I used for it, but there's a lot of them. It was simple to make and it works. We don't have a standard size ironing board, so I'm glad I could make it.
more car seat cover straps .
I made two sets of these. I ironed a set and the velcro melted! Not cool.
I've never used it before, but looked like it would be fun to make. I have a project that I plan on using this for.
A new pillowcase for David. I didn't use any tutorial for this since it was pretty simple to figure out.
I adjusted the measurements to make it toddler size based on this tutorial.
There's all kinds of cute stuff for girls, but not much stuff for boys. David liked it and I think he'll be able to use it for a few years.
