A little Sewing


Last week I made something that was waiting for a long time.
I got a layer cake from Moda fabrics on e-bay to make a table runner but just never got to make it.
I love quilting. The problem is that I am not very good at it...but, I keep trying.  So, here is my Ruby table runner.

I love this line of fabric, an old one now, but beautiful. I played safe and just sewed the squares together. Simple, but fast and less challenging. Sometimes easy is the best.

I also made this pie carrier. Another simple sewing project.

It's just a padded square of fabric. You can get the idea with my picture, but if you need, you can find many tutorials online teaching how to make this.

To close the carrier, you just pass the middle of the fabric handle trough the two loops. Just great to take round or square casseroles to potlucks this summer. If you use a one way print fabric would be perfect. Mine is not, but I love this apples and pears fabric and used it anyways.

Last Friday Brenda went to a birthday tea party. I made this little apron as a gift to her friend. The birthday girl was one of those girls that have a lot of stuff. Hard to shop, a cute apron was the solution. I hope she liked.
And now this week's sewing. It was kind of hard, a very difficult fabric to work with.

These are thirty long sleeve shirts that I had to sew a stripe of silver fabric on. Brenda's school is doing the Disney Beauty and the Beast play. These shirts are part of the costume for the silverware from the "Be our guest" song.  I volunteered to help with the costumes.
So, that's what I was doing lately. Lots more to come.
Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend!
