A few little sewing projects to show.
New pillows (the turquoise ones). Nothing fancy, just been wanting to add another color to the front room- it has been mostly lime green. I've had the 16" feather pillow forms and fabric for months.
I don't know why I procrastinated so much. They were really quite simple, just basted that cording onto the front panel with my zipper foot before I pieced them together. No zipper openings for me this time, just a quick overlapping in the back. Feels good to get that one off my list, and I'm loving that lime green and turquoise combo.
Shower curtains are so easy to sew. Just buy about 4 yards of fabric, cut it in half, sew the two pieces together down the middle using a french seam, then use a 2" hem on the top and bottom. I don't even bother with the selvages- I just leave them as they are. I make button holes in the top hem for the rings and wa-lah- a shower curtain.
The last little project was for Baby. I made the cozy hooded towel from Purl Bee. The towel itself is made from fine terry cloth. The binding and hood is accented with soft flannel. It was all a bit squirmy to work with, but I persevered. With the left-over fabric I made a few washcloths. I just zig-zagged the edges of two 9"squares of flannel and terrycloth wrong sides together. My friend bought us the Spa Baby tub that you see there. I am so excited to see how that works out!
The countdown is on for real now. I have a post prepared to show what is involved in setting up for a home birth. Oh the waiting!
