I pulled out some fat quarters of Anna Maria Horner's gorgeous flannels and my trim/ribbon/webbing collection and got to work. This tag blanket was shockingly easy to put together. I cut 13" squares from each of the fabrics and 4" pieces of each of the trims one morning before he woke up. That same night I sat down at the sewing machines while the Freds were in bed reading and whipped it up in about 15 minutes. He's chewing on it at this very moment- the best review possible!
For the Future
Old Material, New Ideas
I think I've found my next Tshirt project- I promise to share when I have a winner.
Bag Sale Fabric!
In my mind (meaning I have yet to make an official prototype), the fabrics on the left will be paired with the polished version of my bleach test above for some lovely rectangular throw pillows. Stripes and plaids with simple circles and dots- delicious!
The fabric on the right will be turned into more bibs and baby hats. I have discovered that I have a surprising affinity for paisley. I never go out intending to find paisley, but I have at least 6 different paisleys in my studio right now. Hmmm...
Secret Un-named Projects
Over the weekend I will be posting my tasty borscht recipe (who doesn't like pink food?) and I will be making mushroom stroganoff, tomato-free chili, steel-cut oats to feed an army, a fancy chocolate cake, and chocolate pudding popsicles, yum! Will post recipes next week. Enjoy your weekend!
