And..my first real sewing project (ever) is finally complete! Couldn’t have done it without my wonderful husband offering to drive!
This “tag-blankie” inspired by Lotta’s Simple Sewing for baby (except, I didn’t have a sewing machine, so it was a hand-sewn project, thanks for the extended loan : )
I did deviate by doubling up on ribbons and folding the tags in varying forms—Emmy loves nibbling on the IKEA “shallot” toy because of its mess-o-tags, so I thought, “why not make a, mess-o-tags for the blankie”?
Green was the accent color, and I used ribbon scraps from my stash.
It was a super easy and quick project, just three simple items, really: ribbon, fabric, needle/thread… I think she likes it.
Sewing wasn’t as difficult or tedious as I expected, maybe because I began with something rather small/simple–either way, I feel rather liberated from my fear of sewing and am looking forward to future sewing adventures!
