Not surprisingly, after I made Lucy's little bubble dress on Friday, I got inspired to sew something else.
After a trip to Sirs fabric store in Fayeteville, TN on Saturday, I came home - not with my #1 priority which was to find flannel fabric for a new rail fence rag quilt for Jason and I to use - but with several yards of fabric that I fell in love with! (Sadly, the flannel selection currently is not anything that I need. It's a small selection to start with, and every print was a licensed Disney character flannel print or a drab, not cute solid flannel color. Looks like I'll have to pay a premium at Creative Sewing here in town for my fabric.)
I'm going to make slipcovers for the outdoor cushions I have, which are perfectly fine, except for 1) I don't love the blue and white striped pattern, and 2) have become a little dingy after the ties loosened and Toby figured out how to pull them off the chairs and use them as beds :-)
But, problem solved...I made new slipcovers, and I love how they turned out. I had just enough fabric leftover to make a table runner too.
So, after a few more hours of sewing this weekend, ta-da...
My friend Jamie went with me to Sirs...check out this adorable Easter Basket she made for her cutie-patootie daughter, Hastings. So great, Jamie! I love it!
