I can not begin to express my emotions about tomorrow. I am excited, hopeful, nervous and scared. Here are a few pictures of things I am taking with me tomorrow. Feedback is appreciated!
I tried to pay attention to detail, not only while sewing but also with presentation. I bundled the home-made burp cloths in sets of 3 and wrapped them with ribbon. For that extra touch I added a home-made tag.
These burp cloths above are the only set I made with terry cloth instead of cloth diapers. I think they are adorable as well as functional!
There are several methods I used while making these. Some I covered the whole front of the burp cloth with fabric (like making a pillow) and then flipping it right side out and top stitching the hole closed. I also appliqued and included ribbon to cover the raw edges. My fave was the green polka dot set!
I thoroughly enjoyed making these next ones. I used plain Mason Jars. I have 4 different types: Bath Beads, Soup, Candy Filled and Potpourri. They indeed “look” home-made but have this special appeal to them nonetheless and would make great teacher or co-worker gifts!
This is a crib quilt I am taking. There is a part of me that wants to keep it. My daughter actually asked me to make her one, only bigger. LOL I fell in love with this fabric/print.
