I got a lot accomplished this week. I love it when my hubby is available to hold the baby and I can sew - sew - sew! I made three bindings, then basted three quilts, quilted two, and bound one and a half. I also made two crochet hats ( one of them several times) and added more listings to my Etsy shop. Phew! I'm linking up with WiP Wednesday.
Even with all of that I didn't quite finish all my goals for the week. Maybe I aim too high? I still have some book blocks that I wanted to work on. Hopefully I'll get to them this week.
|I'm one of those people who love making binding. I think it's fun and fast and it looks so fabulous when it's done. I use a pen to roll them up and then put a pin in it. The rolls make them so much easier to work with and keep them nice and neat when I'm not working.|
|I just adore spray basting. It wasn't until last year that I knew such a thing even existed. I basted three quilts during nap time where before it would have been an all day event.|
|I got my first order from someone I have never met. It was so exciting. This is an adult/teen hat. I really love this owl hat!!|
|Here's a top-ish view of the hat. Love!|
|I also put my first quilt listing in Etsy. The hardest part was trying to decide how much to charge for it. Seventy seemed to be the median going rate for one this size with fabric of this quality. We'll see how it works out. As a side note I was pretty funny in this listing mentioning that the baby wasn't included and referencing that little serving suggestion in the bottom of the photo like on a cereal box. I crack myself up.|
|I did a zigzag machine binding. The thread matches so well you can hardly see it but I'm pretty proud of it and it looks crazy sturdy.|
|This one is also for my shop. It has been basted and quilted and the binding was sewn onto the back. It's so close!|
