Sewing again



Here’s my newest project. It’s a baby bag for my friend yasemin. She had a little girl last week, and I decided to get my sewing machine out and make her one. I made a red whit and black one for another friend about 2 years ago and she loved it. I hope yasemin uses it. I make these and sell them on Artfire. You should check them out.
I still have to add the plastic rings and the strap. I’ve got the strap ready to go, but when I looked at the clock after getting this far, it was 1:30 AM. Wow! Bedtime for this little crafter.


Inspiration from auntie

I need to post inspiring things that I find. For now I’m starting with my most recent creation (although this is my second attempt at the pattern)

Pixie hat. My friend got me a new pattern book, but not realizing that it was all knitting projects, and me only knowing crochet. Alas I must learn a new craft now! So I started with a cast on. I had no idea that there was more than one way to do this… ack! What to do? I checked out a local yarn store and sure enough, their were some grannies there who showed me their way, and then whipped out a knitting encyclopaedia.”this way is best for stretch”, she told me. So onward ho! My next stop was the bargain bookstore. Success! I found a really sweet book for 4 bucks. Sadly I can’t do any of the projects yet, but it inspires me to teach myself more. Well, I think I’ve got the knit stitch down. What do you think?
