A little confidence…

I’m afraid I’m turning into a fabric hoarder. Originally when I started sewing, I bought fabric for projects as needed. I did this because I didn’t want to spend too much money on a hobby I might hater, but now, well, I buy them when I find a great sale. I basically went a little nuts here, but I have projects in mind for most of these fabrics.

New Fabrics

Oh, and did I mention that pre-washing/ironing fabric is quite a task in itself? The not-so-fun parts of sewing.

I also laid out the baby quilt. There will be some Kona cotton in between the rows to break it up a bit as well. This is the pattern for the quilt, just to give you a general idea. I can’t wait to start sewing this together. :)

Baby Quilt Layout

This weekend, the Amy Butler fabric was screaming at me to make something out of it. I made a cover for my planner that I bought a couple of weeks ago. I love the way it came out! :) There’s still some minor tweaks I might make, but overall, it’s an improvement than the black cover it had. :)

  1. I love all the colors of that quilt, can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  2. I feel like that in general about crafts. I started collecting too much yarn, freaked out and then purged right before we moved. I have friend who has two full closets of craft stuff. I mean if you opened the closet everything would fall on you full. My fabric pile is growing so I finally signed up for an online sewing class I’m hoping will remedy that.

  3. Love, love, love the planner cover! I need a new planner for this coming school year, if I find some pretty (pink!) fabric can I commission you to make a cover for it? :)

  4. the quilt is wonderful! wow that’s quite an accomplishment. i love the fabrics and patterns. plus, i think your and the hubs’ side by side fleur de lys paintings are very cute! mine would have resembled a chocolate chip cookie or something.
