I finally put all of my blog reads into Google Reader and I couldn't be happier! I'm not sure why it took me so long to do it. I like having a visual list on who's updated so its to easier to go through and see what's new!
Now I'm on the hunt for fabulous new (to me) blogs.
It also had the word "beginner" in the title, so how hard could it be?!
Turns out, not very hard at all! (though I am by no means a bias tape pro...I can still see the the stitching I shouldn't be able to see...but anyway.)
I bought the fabric to make a pillow for a friends daughter (another work in progress) but decided to use some of it for a bag for another friends daughter. Minus a couple of minor errors (one handle is longer than the other..oops...I think I can fix it lol), I'm REALLY pleased with it and would love to make one for myself now.
___ I know I said in another post that the best camera is the camera you have on hand...well I lied. I hate the quality of my Blackberry photos so I need to get a new battery charger soon!
I finally responded to my invitation and got to the Harry Potter exhibit *just* before it left the Ontario Science Centre. It was pretty amazing to see some of the sets, props and costumes from all the movies.
So I wanted to start blogging again. And I wanted to blog about the things I make. I like to blog with pictures, so when I discovered my dead camera battery and no charger I felt like I had to delay on the blogging because I couldn't take pictures of the crafty things I want to make.
Yeah well, if I go with that train of thought, I'll likely never blog again. Besides, I heard that from the BlogHER conference this year someone said the perfect camera is the camera you have. So if that means my pics for a while will be taken with my Blackberry, so be it!
THIS is what I want to make next...
Isn't it purdy?!
The beautiful pics of the finished product and the free pattern are available on this website.
Amazingly enough, I have the fabric I want to use in stock. So my tight budget at the moment can't be an excuse for not working on it this weekend.
My crafty skills are a bit rusty....and my sewing machine is a bit dusty....so wish me luck!
