More craft sewing for me. Sometimes I just don’t feel like making clothes! I’ve been re-organizing the arts n crafts room, and in the process found about a dozen more UFOs. Ugh! If I’m not feeling a project, away it goes. Then I find it again a couple years later… I got a wheeled cart from my mom for Xmas to store them, but I quickly realized I need another one! Since that’s not an option, I’m going to try to clear out some of it. Here’s one that I found, chilling in a random plastic box for the past 3 years:
I believe it’s called a “quiet book.” I probably spent a good 5 hours on it today. Lots of cutting of small shapes! Its original intended recipient is now 3, so I decided to make it for a coworker who’s due in April. That should give me enough time to finish, though I really want to get it done in the next week or so. I’ve got almost all the supplies. I just need the foil dot fabric for the butterfly wings, something for the nest (they say faux fur, I say that’s just silly), yarn for the hair, and a shoelace. I went looking for some scraps for the doghouse, and found that I have not one plastic tub of remnants, but two! Even worse, one of them had that dozen or so UFOs I mentioned. On the plus side, it’s fabulous that I’ll be spending almost nothing on this project!
Here’s to hoping I don’t screw this thing up!
