I finally got out my sewing machine and sewed this weekend! I finished this textured blanket. It's not very cute but it's fun.
I was tired of using plastic bags to hold toys for several reasons:
1) Plastic bags should be kept away from children
2) The bags wear out
3) Children can't close them easily
4) They don't hold a lot of toys
My solution: make drawstring fabric bags! I ended up making 3 bags since they are so easy to make. I made one for MJ's tea set, one for play food, and one for little cars. I tried to use fabric that symbolized what was in the bag. It makes it a whole lot easier to sort and find toys for little ones. You will notice that this fabric bag with teacups holds MJ's tea set.
Project #3: Fabric book. I made this book for a friend's baby shower. I LOVE fabric books. They last a lot longer than board books. They are harmless and baby can turn the pages easily.
Peanut wished this one were for her.
I am also sewing a costume for MJ. I usually don't sew clothes because it requires more than just straight seams (notice my 3 previous projects above) and it takes time! I like easy, quick projects. I need to have the costume done by Wednesday so I hope to post it sometime this week.
