- I just order some of the flannel fabric to make my first rag quilt! ( I couldn’t order it all because it was just to much!) I want it to be twin size so according to this handy website it’s going to take about 15 yards 0_0 I have ordered the first 6 yards. I figure by the time I cut up all the squares and start quilting them together, I will have the money to buy more fabric! I am going to pretty much follow the tutorial found on this website, with a few minor changes. One being I found this super cute owl fabric that I’m going to use as a large panel in the center. Then I am also going to start out with 10in squares instead of 8in (That’s only because I personally have a hard time sewing really close to the edge and i want to make sure i still have a good 6-8in quilted square when finished.
- I have a few more sewing projects lined up, just waiting for the fabric. I want to try and make a Peasant styled dress and a square top shirt. I remind you everything I sew is on a super mini $20 sewing machine 🙂 I do plan to upgrade one day. I had a friend ask me to try and make her daughter a few dresses for her up coming birthday. As she knows I am very new at this, I am glad she is trusting me to get my creative juices flowing!
- Future TuTu creations, I just received 2 new printed tulle! One of them is blue and black zebra print and the other is black and white cheetah print, not sure what I’m going to do yet. But I am still excited!
- My dad is sending me some blocks of wood (I don’t have the tools here to buy a 2×4 and cut it up) Once I receive them I am going to sand them paint them and modge podge some really cute scrapbook paper (big top series) & put the letters of my daughters name on the blocks. ( My youngest daughter is having a circus/carnival themed second birthday the blocks are to be one of her presents) On the note about her birthday, I planned to also make a custom birthday banner, and a lot of other cool carnival themed items. Her birthday is not until October but be on the look for many home made custom birthday ideas!
I have lots of future creations planned and I’m very excited about sharing my process with you all! I love feedback, If you have something in mind and would like for me to try and make it just send me a message at my face book page or leave a comment below. If I have never made the item before I am very hesitant about charging. I usually only charge the exact amount for material anyways. So don’t be afraid to ask! It’s much more fun to craft/sew when you have someone in mind!
Thanks again for reading
