I spent this week being semi-crafty. I finally sewed my little guy his sleep mat for pre-school. I was so excited to find this cute animal print fabric and I used a navy blue quilted fabric to match it! I’m trying my hand at a matching pillow later today – we’ll see how well that goes! My grandmother taught me how to sew on her 301a Singer Sewing Machine a la 1953. I must admit that thing is badass. Heavy, powerful, and beautiful stitching! I recently had it cleaned and tuned up and I am more than thrilled to start working on some new sewing projects!
I’ve always wanted to sew one of those crayon roll/fabric roll things to hold the kids crayons in. They are pretty practical when it comes to travel or for tossing in your pocket-book/purse/diaper bag to have in case of “emergencies.” We all know kids love crayons! And the fabric prints are super cute!
Have a wonderful and inspiring holiday weekend! ♥
That crayon roll is adorable! Now I want to make one for my colored pencils! 🙂
And the quilted mat looks amazing.
Wish I had your patience! I used to sew for my kids when they were small but I have so little time now, and they’re at the stage where stuff Mom made isn’t as cool as what all their friends are wearing. lol
Wow, great job!! The blanket is adorable, love that print. I wish I knew how to sew, perhaps that will be my next project 🙂
Wow, impressive! I regret not letting my mom teach me to sew.
Great projects! They are both super cute. The crayon roll is such a great idea, I’ll have to remember that for when Little Bear is old enough to use it.
