Anyone crafting? - Page 3
MamaAna, here is one i finished this morning. I know the thread doesn't match, but since it is to bleed on i tend to use what is already in the machine because I'm lazy... I still need to put on a button or snap. Its about 13 inches long, but i love this size at night. Less worries of leaks.
Oh I like that!
I've nearly finished mine. The actual sweater is all done, I just need to make a trip to JoAnn's for another card of buttons and finish up the octopus to put on the front!
The thing I loved about the Puerperium cardi was how easily it lends itself to having foofoo decor on it, be it buttons or a little felt animal or whathaveyou. That's why I am going for the octopus (I am childfree tomorrow, so I am hoping to knock it out then!) to add to the front too.
The photo I posted doesn't do it justice, but the sweater is like, a pumpkiny orange (http://kraemeryarns.shptron.com/p/perfection-tiger), which I was not really sure about to begin with, but since he's a Fall baby, maybe it'll grow on me? Plus with the blue buttons and the yarn I have for the octopus is a denim/heather blue I am hoping that mutes the brightness of the orange.
We plan to get an Ikea crib this summer and hopefully sell our other one, so I will be making fitted sheets for the smaller mattress. I've been pinning fabrics I like on pinterest, and found a super easy tutorial to make them. I also would like to make curtains, but the fabric I picked out is gone - I delayed in deciding and ordering. :(. I need to find something else now and started looking online last night .
Seriously though, everyone's stuff looks great! Eric's mom has a machine and we're planning on making a blanket for the baby together, so that should be a good jumping off point to get me some sewin skills. I'm a intermediate knitter, but I get bored easily so I have unfinished projects stashed everywhere.
And I'm all "there's 20 things I want to knit but can't find motivation to even choose yarn for." WTH is wrong w/me?? Gotta start these projects!
