Good idea.

Not so good execution.  Sometimes even I make things that I rather think don't deserve a post.  But it's proof that I did touch my sewing machine today.  And when I'm feeling sorry for myself in a few days about how little I've been able to sew, I'll be happy to look back and see that the machine and I did have a few moments together today.


I saw a link to these adorable baby teethers over on homemade by Jill.  I suddenly remembered that I had a baby shower to attended, and that I do so love bringing even just one small thing handmade.  But I'm not sure these are going to make the cut.  I followed Jill's additions and added the layer of batting and that layer of wipes plastic.  It's true that they end up sounding just like a wipes bag, which I remember the babies love.  But I do not like the hand sewn closure.  Mine obviously turned out poorly, and with the added layers, it's just hard for it to get a nice finish.  I'm not sure what to do about that.  Also, the pattern I think is a bit too small.  Were I to start over, I'd definately try making the whole thing bigger.  Somehow I think this would help iliminate some of the difficulties I had.  Who knows.  Maybe it just wasn't my night for sewing.

I sure hope I get a second date with my sewing machine before the week is over! 




I seriously need to redeem myself after this post!!

I think these are so cute, and I can't wait to make some! I have a couple of friends that are about have babies, so maybe I'll try my hand at these.

Well I think they're really lovely and any expectant mum would be pleased to recieve something that's been so lovingly made. Stop being so hard on yourself - that's an order!
