While I was out of school on winter break a few weeks ago, I managed to get a little sewing done. I made some gifts for family that lives near me for Valentine’s Day. Now that they have their gifts, I can post about them.
This one was for my niece L. She loves the dolls of LaLa Loopsy. I found the fabric on spoonflower and ordered it. I had the blue and the yellow. Yellow is her favorite color, but I didn’t have enough of any yellow fabric to make the ruffled parts, so I opted for just a contrasting band.
Here is the one I made for my other niece, M. She absolutely loves anything with mustaches on it. The new fabric “Honky Tonk” by Moda, fit the bill. I added a brown Moda “solid” to it.
I made this little runner for my SIL and BIL for V-day. It is from Northcott’s Stonehenge Line.
Last, but not least, I made some napkins for my MIL and FIL. Again, “Honky Tonk” by Moda fit the bill, paired with the same “Solid” by Moda that I used in the pillowcase above.
I had a wonderful time making these gifts. They were small enough projects that I didn’t feel overwhelmed (well, I would have preferred to have had a ruffling attachment for my sewing machine for the pillowcases). I was elated to get to spend time sewing in my sewing room instead of working on homework, longingly looking towards the fabric side of the room.
