My sewing space currently looks like this...
Yikes. I'm in the middle of trying to make, or at least cut out, a Patchwork Prism Quilt. I'm slowly but surely going to get it made, but I'm finding myself getting slightly bored, or maybe it's antsy, and wanting to move onto another project. I only have one more color to cut out, sew I'm hoping I can get it cut out before I clean up this fabric disaster.
Remember how I told you I sewed like mad right before my kids went back to school. I saved all my sewing projects that could have been done over the whole summer and crammed them into a week and a half before school got started??
Here's the official list of things to sew over the summer (I'm cringing at my handwriting. I'm a school teacher and that is terrible penmanship!)...
At the very top of the Summer Sewing List is "2 CA Pillows." I worked with the Young Women at my church and I mentored and befriended 2 girls who graduated in the spring and headed off to BYU a couple weeks ago. I was hoping to give them as graduation presents, but instead they became farewell gifts.
I thought a CA pillow would look cute in their dorm rooms and also remind them of all the loved ones that are cheering for them as big freshman at college.
I found a CA silhouette via Google images, blew it up, cut it out in felt, added a heart, pinned it like crazy to a linen like fabric, and sewed all around it.
I then used an invisible zipper on the bottom, and added a cute Anna Maria Horner Field Study print to the back.
These pillows are super cute. I even got a sneak peak of what it looks like in the dorm! Can you spy it resting on the bed??
Anyway, this is officially the 3 post in like 2 weeks for me. Maybe I'm back for real. For real I'm probably not, but I keep surprising myself, so who knows what this week will bring! Maybe I have another project I forgot about.
Til' I sew again!
