Sew Good

Completed Projects
Baby Items
I was working on a few things to send to my best friend's sister who is having another baby.  She lives in France and I don't get to see her as much anymore.  Using the new sewing machine, I can sew much straighter and even got the chance to do a topstitch that does not get all "jacked up" as it did with the sewing machine I got from my mom.  So here's what I made:

Baby Blanket
(Cropped to edit out my husband)

Contoured Burp Cloth

Burp Cloth

Round Bib

Square Bib

Wipes Holder

These were really easy to make.  The blanket front came pre-quilted and I attached a piece of fabric to the back that matches the patches that are yellow with polka dots.  The other pieces came in a kit where you just cut out the pieces, sew a 1/4 inch seam, turn them inside out and press, then topstitch a 1/8 inch seam.  It took just a couple of hours to complete everything, including about 45 minutes of ironing seams.
