I tell you what, last week was a hectic one. We had one ER trip (the little guy, he’s fine) one big dentist trip for me (me, and now I have a broken temporary crown and an infected tooth – is that TMI?), and one bored kiddo (the original Bobaloo, home for spring break). I kind of dropped of the face of the internet for a while.
I’ve finally been putting all that brand new fabric to work! I ended with one bolt less than I thought (the blue and orange polka dot one is out of print), but it still feels like a HUGE amount of fabric. I love it.
The pink polka dot fabric makes just the cutest bias tape. Speaking of, I switched around how I make bias tape this time and it was so much faster. I usually use the continuous strip method, but this time I cut my bias strips first like this, then serged them end to end. The serger is so fast, plus the seams didn’t get bound up in my bias tape maker like they usually do.
I’m on an apron streak right now. I just finished up a custom Crayon Apron for an adult who wanted one for her face painting brushes (there’s a picture on the bobaloo! Facebook page) and now I’m working on new ones for the Irvington Iris Tea Room. Doesn’t that pink polka dot bias tape look adorable?
I’ve got our Craft-Night-turned-Sewing-Night at my house tonight and a meeting of the Uncommon Craft Society of Indianapolis tomorrow night, then it’s time to get to work on products for Record Store Day on the 16th. What have you guys been up to? I’ve missed you!
