I had grand hopes of updating the blog with my journey of learning to sew, but since it hasn’t happened yet, I decided to just jump right into where I am today.
Alex and I took our first sewing class last October. I thought it was about time I get a real hobby to keep me busy, and sewing sounded fun. I took about 8 classes in 2 months, and have been working through it on my own ever since.
A few months ago I saw a pattern for a baby quilt that I loved. Only problem, I don’t have a baby. Solution, like any stalker socialite, I surfed facebook and saw that one of my cousins announced she was pregnant and found out it was a boy; perfect! It took me a long time to finish – mostly because I kept getting distracted from it and took a break in the middle to sew a Mother’s Day gift. But, about two weeks ago I finished it and last Saturday I finally mailed it off. It should have reached it’s destination by today so I hope a cute little baby boy named Cole will be enjoying it quite soon.
Oh! And in the middle of making it I came across a pattern for baby bibs. Naturally, I made 4 bibs to match the quilt. I learned that I should have reinforced the snaps better, they may tear out of the fabric after a few uses, hopefully they’re enjoyed for a bit.
PS. Everytime I told someone about this project I’d say the gifts were for my cousin’s baby. After many comments/questions I looked it up, Cole is my first cousin once removed.
