Remember when I used to make stuff and then blog about it? That was fun. There haven’t been any crafty posts in a while–but happily it’s not for lack of projects. Here are a few things I sewed up this summer:
The “lion bag.” I followed the child’s bag pattern from this book and found it to be super easy and really functional! However, I made it while Owen was sleeping and didn’t take his height into account–so the strap has since been shortened! He does seem to dig having a bag to carry around his random treasures, so of course I want to make him like 50 more.
A quick pillow for the den. Usually pulled from its spot on the chair, drug into the playroom, and told, “Mickey sit.”
The Taxi Tote from Seams to Me, one of my favorite sewing books. Truthfully, I had made this bag for my mom over two years ago, but the binding had come loose in a few places. She entrusted my advanced sewing skills (HA) and asked me to fix it. So, new orange trim and a fancy new button too.
Soon I’ll be posting from the new and improved playroom–where I share a fun filled creative space with Owen. (and Kevin when he’s feeling crafty. and Skylar when she follows us around. which is always.) It’s been a project in itself since last year really, but I am feeling like it’s almost there and will share soon!
