First, Rachel's birthday is rolling around soon and so will endeth "the season of the birthdays." So save a bit-o-cash I'm making her a dress just like the one I made to sell because she's been asking me if that one belongs to her. Here be the dress, cut out.
Then I am making 9 balls for her. I know we already have over 20 of these balls but it is amazing what brand new, pretty balls will do to reinvigorate play. I am taking apart some of the uglier balls so as to not completely overwhelm us with balls. This is the project I am working the most on because since they are all hand stitched, they are the most time consuming.
Then I'm making myself one of the bags that Tina won. I really liked it so I want one for myself.
Here is a project I am dying to start but really trying not to do too hastily because I *really* REALLY, REALLY want it to work out. Sometimes, Meagan can read my mind. I've been to Joann's several times trying to find what materials I can use to make maternity pants. The underbelly kind, not the cover-the-belly-with-itchy-fabric kind. So out of the blue Meagan sends me an IM with some message that I might be interested in this. It is exactly the tutorial I was looking for. I mean, it can be applied to any garment at all, not just jeans! I'm ecstatic. So I got the materials I need and I have a pair of jeans to cut up. Thank you Meagan. I love you!
Finally, I am putting new handles on this bag. I like the bag, but the bamboo handles I had on it are uncomfortable and don't stay on my shoulder at all. I really think those bamboo handles are meant for small handbags and not big "I'm a mommy" bags.
