Kinda wish I had a more interesting topic to blog about for my 100th post but this will have to make do. I played around with scraps last night and got one half of my oven mitt completed. It's super simple but took me some time as I couldn't decide what fabrics to use. I ended up just sewing a bunch of stuff together and seeing what I ended up with. Looks a bit yellow in the photo, but the main part is a lime green polka. The blue striped fabric in the photo is the lining piece for the other half. I also used the little quilting bar that came with my walking foot for the first time last night. Pretty nifty. I guess this was the first time I've ever really quilted anything. Fun! I plan to use Pink Penguin's Pot Holder tutorial to make a matching pot holder too. Then, just as soon as my mom and I can hit Ikea, I'm going to get the cool Asker Rail/Container thingy to hang above my stove. Perfect place to hang my new oven mitt and pot holder.
Also in the works. . . more Gathered Pouches using Anna's tutorial. Looks like I'm on a navy blue stripe kick!
Soon to be added to the To Do list. . .
I'm playing around with the idea of making Sydney a little toddler back pack. Anyone try Made By Rae's pattern? So cute. I guess I should go see if I can get my hands on webbing before getting the pattern. I'm thinking that's not something I can pick up at Hobby Lobby :(
