rainy days

5 Sep

Happy Labor Day 🙂 how has the weather been in your neck of the woods? Well, here in the 540 it’s been raining non-stop all day long. So, I figured I had nothing better to do than teach myself how to work this sewing machine that I just bought… After all, it can’t be that  hard… right?!

Actually, it wasn’t! I got lucky and found this great tutorial online this morning by Nancy, on how to make the cutest rolled fabric flowers. Sooo, about 3:30 we packed Muffin up into the car and headed out to Jo-Anne’s fabric with our Labor Day coupons in hand. I got my glue, fabric. felt, thread, and $60 more worth of stuff and spent the rest of the night threading the needle and cutting fabric until I finally accomplished a basic zig-zag stitch… So, after many trial runs and tangled strings, here’s the final product!

These will be going on to a headband soon! Plus: keep your eye out for new fabrics and designs all week 🙂
