Last week, Jerry was out of town. To fill what could have been very long days, I decided to work on sewing projects for Christmas gifts. I'm still a sewing beginner and have decided that I like small projects that rely on a lot of straight lines.
I did three different things: cloth-covered notebooks, crayon rolls, and a bag. If after reading this blog you feel inspired, Google instructions which are all over the internet.
I feel a certain amount of satisfaction when I take something wrinkled and frayed ...
and turn it into into something that looks tidy and complete.
I made eight cloth covered notebooks. In order to avoid boredom I tried pockets on a few. On the last two I sewed on ribbon. I liked it better than the pockets.
Here are the final products. (I made three BYU notebooks which are not all pictured.)
I decided that the younger crowd that I am making gifts for would not appreciate notebooks so much. Then, I remembered that everyone at church as little cloth rolls to store their crayons. With the help of some online instructions, I came up with this.
Last, but certainly not least, I made a bag to hold craft supplies. It's pretty simple, but I think I have decided on a new technique.
