While I was disappointed to have missed the Yarn Harlot in Austin this weekend, I had the opportunity to be at one of my best college friend’s baby shower and to see all my girlfriends from college. At the baby shower, my secret sewing project was revealed.
And she liked it!!! It was pretty cool because another girl made her a playmat and a cart cover out of the same material, so they coordinate but they are different. Here are some close-ups.
I had a lot of fun making this project and it definitely improved my sewing skills. I made it with two different cotton fabric patterns and jeans I wore in college. Hopefully it will be something that will be useful for Em and her soon-to-come baby boy. It was even worth sticking a sewing machine needle through my finger, accidentally, of course. For those of you who pop in that knew us in college, here’s a pic, minus Jen as she didn’t fly in until today (seriously, could I be taller?).
