I finished my first plushie last night! He is imperfect and I love him! The best part is that while I was making him "it" hit me! I was taking this class hoping I could somehow figure out how to do a similar project with my kids next year. (See, I'm always planning ahead!) I have already made the pattern and am excited to try it out but I can't reveal it to you quite yet. (I'm sure you are on pins and needles. I have to many projects on my to do list...I NEED SUMMER!)
Also, I am excited to own my own SEWING BASKET! They were on sale for 40% off at Joann yesterday and I have a teacher card to get an additional 15% off so you can see why I HAD to own one. :) One of the girls in my class had one on Saturday and I was very envious of it. Now, I can keep all of my hand sewing supplies next to my chair in the library. :)
And, (Mom, don't faint...) if you have a sewing basket and a 40% off coupon and a 50% off coupon you really must own your own fabric scissors and snips! :) Cutting felt with my paper scissors necessitated this purchase. I bought all of these things and 4 pieces of felt and one pack of embroidery floss for what I should have paid for the basket and I am silly happy! I had to explain to Jim that he could not cut anything with my sewing scissors. It was a funny conversation and I agreed to just buy him his own normal scissors because he hates the pair he currently has that I gave him. :) In all fairness they are Michael Graves scissors that I bought at Target years ago because I loved their design. Jim would prefer the dollar store variety.
