Colour Book

I set out to do this some time ago but never got around to it. I was even going to make the book with a bunch of people but that never happened either. I followed this tutorial at Everyday Celebrations blog.

I had a rough time finding enough fabric scraps for the colours orange and yellow but between what I had here and my Mom’s workroom I was able to get enough! A few changes I made was that I used grommets for the corners instead of cutting just a hole and a nice heavy key ring to hold them all together, I think that the binder ring would come apart too easily. (again the grommets were found in my Mom’s workroom, you have to love free things! and my sister found me the key ring). I also decided not to add words to my cover. Oh and I also sewed down the letters which was a pain in the butt but after making lots of felt stories and knowing felt doesn’t like much to stick to it I decided to stitch them along with the heat n bond. No peeling letter here!

That’s it! I am pretty happy with how it turned out, I hope she likes it! Now I have to decide on whether I am giving it to Lorelei for Christmas or her birthday.



My sister’s apron

I have neglected my poor blog for quite some time. I once heard that blogging is kind of like a diet you are really great at it for a while and then stop but then get back on. Since it is Christmas season I have been very busy starting projects. So hopefully I will have enough creative things to post for a while :)

I was making this apron for my sister for Christmas but then we decided to draw names between siblings so she got it early. I used parts of my Amy Butler pattern and then I traced out one of my halter dresses to create a pattern for the top. I changed up the pocket and the pleating from the pattern as well. I had a lot of fun putting it together and was glad that my creating pattern drafting worked out!

I used a fabric line by Henry Glass called Fandango:
