Playing With Fabric...

I don't aspire to be a great seamstress or anything. I'm just aiming to become semi-competent at the projects I'd like to make. I followed the change purse tutorial from Split Yarn, and I made it slightly bigger. When I was finished, I thought my iPod might fit in it, and it does! Perfectly! It's not a Mini or anything either.I'll have to decide what it's actually going to be used for fairly soon though, so I can place the snap in the proper place. I probably won't be picking up the snap until the weekend though, so I've still got a bit of time. It is so nice to be able to make a two sided fabric. It looks so much more professional.

This change purse is a great "practice my somewhat lacking sewing skills" project.

I had this great idea about knitting a blanket and having the "wrong" side lined with fabric. Or quilted fabric. Or something along those lines. I might make a practice blanket for the cats. How 'bout felting the knitted side, and then quilting the other? Oh, I like that idea. Perfect for the kitties. Stu will definitely give me attitude when I make the boys a pink floral blanket. Hehe.

That's inspiring. As soon as my guests leave (imagine - staying in my knitting room!), I'm going to break out the sewing machine.

I love the fast projects that increase the competence! I think I may have embarked on the world's longest sewing project right now.

Love your fabric!
These cute, simple, small projects make me want to learn to sew. I'm so jealous of all the cute sewn stuff I see on blogs.
