i’m back!! whew, the last few weeks have been a little crazy, but my house is empty again so i was able to tear up the dining room with all my sewing gear. the day wasn’t uneventful though – about 80% of the way through this project i snapped a needle and couldn’t find the bottom half for a while…thought it was inside the machine…until low and behold i found it stitched into the back of my project! well, happy that it wasn’t in the black hole of my machine.
anywhoo, another month of baby showers for me! i was getting bored with the standard issue bib & burp so i decided to get a little creative with my first applique. since this baby’s gender is unknown, i stuck with green, yellow and orange fabric scraps. yeah, that’s right – scraps. i bought nothing for this project, whoopie!
i did use the fish pattern from a mccalls pattern i had, but could have created something similar pretty easily.
