Been missing from blogging this last month , we all had the flu, I thought it was never going to go away, Coughing, hot and swollen throat for over three weeks, Daughter, hubby and youngest son were all ill at the same time, It was just horrid, but we are all better now.
This week I got out the sewing machine and made a few projects.
Just really enjoying sewing at the moment .
Treated myself to this little Beauty just before I fell ill, so enjoying playing with it again, My other was 40 years old , and needed retiring , I have given it to daughter,I don't know if she will ever use it, but its good enough for a starter machine
The first is another Sock monkey this is the second one I have made, see my posts below for the other one.
this I made for Grandson Cameron, they are so easy to make, you use a pair of socks, you can find lots of Tutorials on Google and YouTube , they make up really quickly, and are so cute
My second item is a little Square bag made up from scraps left over from the quilt I made my little granddaughter , I have given it to her mummy to put in her bedroom to drop little baby things into.
Really enjoyed making this little bag, this was my sample one, that why I used left over fabric.
I'm going to make another one, but I might quilt this one to give the sides extra strength , so the bag is not so floppy
The third project is a sock cat, Older grandson Keaton wanted a cat instead of a monkey now he wants me to make him a Monkey also after seeing Cameron's, This one I finish a month ago just before I fell ill, this is my first chance to blog it, again lots of tutorials on Google showing you how to make this and other animals , I found it easier and quicker than the Monkeys to make up.
Thanks for looking
