Say What? Sew what?











{March 7, 2010}   I’m back in the saddle again!

Success, or at least I think so.  I guess I’ll find out tomorrow. A friend of mine asked me to come up with a gift for a 2 year old girl that was funky and earthy, but not too girly.  The child loves Yo Gabba Gabba.  Think. Think. Think.  A messenger bag!  I made one for my 4 yr old son to carry his cars in, based on mmmcrafts’ tutorial (http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/06/basic-messenger-bag.html) So, I racked my brain.  A trip to Goodwill to find just the right materials.  I found one child’s hoodie with orange terry fuzz in the hood and one earthy green silk skirt.  Then rummaging thru my stash at home, I found one prom skirt that was a peachy orangy pinky color that would be perfect.  So here’s the before and after.  My machine and I had an argument last night and I had to step away, but I cleaned it today and now we’re back on each other’s good sides.

The inside, four pockets for whatever her little heart desires.

Now what to sew next??  I have to do 2 birthday crowns for upcoming first birthdays for friends…  I also think I’m going to do a black and white with red accent type of baby quilt for my Little B.  I’m kind of tired of seeing overtly girl and overtly boyish stuff, so I want something a little different.

Well off to bed now!  I cannot wait to hear how the little girl likes her bag.

Lots of love!
