This last week, I've sewn a little and helped my friend Denise a little.
She had a bit of knee surgery and I
Her Noni has reached an age where she needs a lot more care than she'd like and her care giver (Denise's uncle?I think she might even be in a facility...I gotta get my brain fixed, sheesh)) requested a few more adult bibs.
This is the original. It's neck opening isn't centered.....that drove me nuts.
We played with some fabric at her place and came up with some dimensions and reworked the shape a bit, then I brought it home and made a pattern so she could make a bunch for Her Noni.
The first try. We decided a little bit more length and we took off the sharp corners to give it a more refined look. You should've seen it...hahahaha it was cut sooooo lopsided...we don't even know how that happened, but it did.
Ta and daaaaaa
I also finished up my little bag project. Denise pointed out they were just the right size for a thread catcher...or even put a leak proof pot in them and make them a planter cover or giant pencil/scissor holders. Decisions, decisions....one is definitely a halloween bag.
I think I have decided to make fabric gift tags for all my packages this year. They can also double as gift card holders too. Teens love $$ as a gift and that makes my shopping all that much easier and those that do love a homemade pressie, I can spend more time on them!
Let the Holiday Season begin.........
