I had a productive sewing day Monday. Below are some pictures of what I made.
First up are three skirts for my daughter. FOE (fold over elastic) is my new BFF. It made these skirts go together very quickly. All of the fabrics for the skirts were given to me by my husband’s aunt. She had cleaned out her trunk of “scraps” (Obviously, they are big scraps.) and gave them to me. My daughter just loves skirts right now and I am so happy to be able to make her these so frugally.
Next, I used some fabric that was given to me by my former neighbor to make the re-usable grocery bag pictured below. The fabrics are a sturdy cotton (not quite canvas) and are identical except for the fact that one is red and the other is blue. I think it is bright and cheery and will hopefully make the recipient happy to use it.
Lastly, I made a 10 inch quilt block for a dear woman on Diaper Sewing Divas who just lost her full-term baby. She almost died herself as a result of an amniotic fluid embolism. However, I am praising God that she is on the road to recovery. God still works miracles. The block I made will be sent to a member of the group who will put it together with all of the others who donated blocks. It is far from perfect, but I know she will appreciate the cross.
