for 2 washers and 2 dryers, because waking up to a kid puking in your face makes for a lot of laundry.
My sewing room is a disaster. I’ve started tidying and cleaning, but that means dealing with a lot of unfinished projects. A LOT. For example, I started this purse over a year ago. I hate the handles, so I never finished. I can’t decide if it’s worth working on some more or if I should just cut it apart and use the scraps for something else.
BC has a 42″ plasma leaning against the wall in there, too. He claims he’s taking it to work for training videos. Or something. I think it should be the prize for our next giveaway. And I’m sending him a link to this post. Maybe it’ll be the motivation he needs to remove it?
I made this bag for a friend. She picked the fabrics. I think they’re Alexander Henry, but I bought them a very long time ago for a dress for Macy so I’m not quite sure.
Tutorial and pattern here. It’s a little small (keep in mind I pack around a diaper bag called “MotherShip” for day to day use and take my opinion on that with a grain of salt). I also didn’t like how the straps were attached last. It’s a little sloppy for my liking. If I made it again, I’d attach them when I sewed the lining to the outer fabric.
Just for fun, a picture of Macy in the dress. 2 years is a long time in kid years.
The winners are….
Ambrosia (totally typed your actual name the first time), who guessed correctly when she said “Did you find it tangled around the rotating brush rod on your vacuum cleaner after it stopped sucking stuff up/rotating while you vacuumed your latest craft mess?” Indeed I did.
Jane, who said “BC’s belly button?”. However, I’m not flying to Phoenix to make her dinner. Sorry, Janer.
Pretty sure you both already have my email, so let me know what you want for your prizes!
This was my ironing board cover this morning:
This is my ironing board now:
Tutorials can be found here, here, and here. I did a wide 3 thread stitch on my serger and then threaded the string from the old cover through the stitching with a doll maker’s needle. I also added 2 thin layers of cotton batting. Fabric is Heather Bailey’s Pop Garden.
And, the contest is over at midnight. Stay tuned for winners in the morning!
So, there was this thing yesterday at Pottery Barn Kids (aka the place we spend all our American Express points). We got tickets weeks ago. BC and the boys had to get up early on a Saturday.
(Sir, if you’re reading….you look like an idiot.)
And when the moment they’d longed for finally came….
Campbell said he hated Storm Troopers and needed to get out of there. Keller wasn’t much better. We try to be good parents. We really do. Our kids just don’t want to have fun. Stay tuned for our trip to the circus in 2 weeks. I’m sure that one will rule.
So, we’re having a contest. Tell me where I got this disgusting mass and win a prize. First correct answer wins. Funniest answer also wins. That’s right people….TWO winners. What do you win? Well, the choice is yours (that makes me think of those Chuck A Rama commercials). Maybe a scripture case? A tampon/pencil case? Lounge pants? Dinner at my house? Or, pick something else. Ready……set……guess!
(The quarter did not happen to be part of the original mass, it’s just there for size reference.)
