I decided I wanted to learn more about the things my sewing machine is capable of so I pulled out the manual and got to experimenting. I posted my first attempt at applique on FB cause I thought it was just so cute. Here it is again:
|I put it on a cloth diaper so it could be a cute... um burp rag... I guess. haha|
I have loved ruffles for a long time now and I have been fairly intimidated to tackle any of my many pins on Pinterest that involved ruffles just because I haven't made very many so I decided while I was practicing my sewing I should work on my ruffles. I found a kitchen towel that a friend gave to to craft with and some cute fabric that would match mt kitchen and got busy. Here is what I ended up making.
The towel on the right I made a while back and now with the added towel on the left I am just so pleased with my little display.
I also finally got around to decorating an "R" I bought awhile back. I modge podged some cute scrapbook paper on and roughed up the edges with a dull exacto knife added the embellishment and hot glued magnets to the back.
Now I have the cutest fridge decor!
I'm still debating as to whether or not to add a clothes pin to it so it will be a bit more practical but for now I'm just enjoying it as a non functional piece of decor.
Speaking of debating... when crafting I often find myself torn when trying to "commit" to a design. I don't want to mess it up and ruin something that I feel like there is so much potential for me to love.Does anyone else ever feel this way?
