1, 2, 3….

I said I was going to take my time getting through the list, but that doesn’t seem to be possible for me.  I have finished three projects and I’m still going.

First up, I had some leftover fabric from the dresses I have been making lately, so I thought I would make a pretty bag to match.  It is lined with a fabric in a lighter shade of pink, and I used batting to give it some shape. It came out with a sort of plush quilted look to it that I thought was cute.  It is suppose to be shaped like a heart, does it look like it?

Next up, I had plenty of smaller scraps of fabric left and the only thing to do with them is make accessories.  These cuffs were made to take advantage of the edge of the material.  It also allowed me to practice doing button holes, and I really do need the practice.  At least they stay buttoned.

I had planned to make this capelet much later seeing as it is much too warm here in Arizona still to wear it.  I’d be lucky if I can wear next month.  Still, I was too excited to wait on it to finally cool down.  I got the fabric for it at Goodwill for 50 cents, it reminds me of fallen snow.  I used a fitted t-shirt to help get the shape of the shoulders and I sort of winged it to get the neck of it.

Here’s the updated list:
  • Bag
  • Cuffs
  • Bookshelves
  • Books
  • Magazines
  • Poncho
  • Table
  • Desk chair
  • Chair
  • End table
  • Lamps
  • Capelet
  • Headbands
  • Globe
  • Rug
  • Curtains
Three down, thirteen to go.  I need to hunt down some cardboard before I start the next few, unless I go ahead again.
