I finally bound a baby blanket that I made 5 years ago! Holy smokes. How sad. I was lazy and used that silky blanket binding that I had a random pack of. it took like 10 minutes and I have stared at that stupid thing that long! I also whipped out a felted purse. Just a felted cabled cream sweater, some black ribbon, recycled purse handles that have been irritating me, and some lime green lining. Turned out super cute and I think I will send it to my grandma for her birthday. And dang easy and one of my girlfriends- but I am making a carseat canopy for the new baby. I am going to use the last of my fav green floral that I have been saving and debating between teal linen (which matches so well and would be sooo lovely- but I was kind of saving for a skirt for me...) or muslin lining and making contrasting bias tape.... I could always get some more of the linen if I still want the skirt I guess- especially since I didn't have a pattern in mind even.... Ok teal linen it is I guess.
ohhh yeah- 4/52. And pretty much recycled if you figure out how long it has been sitting here :)
OK- well scratch the fabric I choose so far. Need to go through my stash I guess...
eta again... I made the canopy. super simple. just a yard of fabric for each layer and I bound mine with contrasting bias tape. very cute! so now I am 5/52 and I think I might knit tonight. I have a headache- so I think it will be a low key evening.
