another of the home made stencils. sometimes judah likes to get dressed up. now he's prepared for every black-tie occasion
my first ever applique. i used scrap fabric from old burpcloth projects and cut these shapes out then machine stitched around them. it was hard navigating the sewing machine around the nooks of the branches!
jo-ann was having a stupid sale where simplicity patterns were only 99 cents. usually these are like 17 bucks each. so i stocked up even though this is out of my league for right now. i got patterns to make baby shoes, kitchen decor, throw pillows, wallets, make up bags and plenty of other stuff. also on my list of new crafts to try is dyeing. try to contain your excitement.
