As a favor for a friend I sewed a quilted bag from fabrics she picked. I love it so much that I will be making one for myself. And possibly some for an Etsy shop. I've been thinking about it for quite a while and I think it would be a great outlet for my creativity.
I've been knitting away on my swap socks and not making any progress. I started with a gusset and heel flap (headed toe up) and didn't like how the gusset looked so I ripped it and decided to try a short row heel. I didn't like that one either. I think it made the sock shorter that it should have been, too. Stephanie, do you have a heel preference for a heel on a toe up sock? There is a whole page of sock toes and heels here.
I sewed another little outfit for Anneliese. She's very appreciative of the clothes I make for her, which keeps me making them. This was my first time working with a ruffle since I was 12 or so. I learned a few things and the next one will be even better.
I just finished earlier today a skirt for Anneliese, but I don't have pictures yet. Look for another post in a day or two. And as always, more photos are available on my Flickr account, the link is on the right side. At least, I think that's where it is.
I've been putting together swap packages for a few swaps I'm in. I really enjoy putting packages together for other people.
