The floral fabric is from a vintage bed sheet I received from a vintage bed sheet fabric swap. I need to make a matching headband with the leftover scraps.
My next project is a WIP that I will be linking up to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday. I am very excited to have the chance to work part-time at a fabric and yarn store down the street from me. My final "test" is to make this darling baby bunting called Hushabye Baby designed by Favorite Little Things. I was given the pattern and supplies, then sent home to play around. I was a bit nervous about the teeny-tiny trim as I have not had much, if any, experience with this kind of trim. I used my zipper foot and it turned out fine. The same goes with the zipper - not much experience! I hope that goes as well as the trim!
Love the fabric given to me! The colors are great! If all goes well, I might make a couple more for friends having babies.
Lastly, I have been knitting here and there when the mood strikes. I found some organic cotton by Lion Brand called Nature's Choice that is so super soft. I bought it in three colors - pink, blue, and green - and have been making washcloths for the kids. Knitting with cotton yarn can be difficult because there is very little stretch but this cotton yarn is a delight to work with!
I found the pattern on Ravelry called Garter Dishcloth with Pointy Corners by Marlene Wood.
I hope you enjoyed viewing these projects. I love the blogging community for its ideas, inspiration, and community. Everyone has been so kind and encouraging.
Happy sewing...and knitting!
