The first was a project I was finishing up for a friend. I'll give you more details later on (wink, wink!) but the final product was 2 very stylish aprons!!
The next project..well..y'all are just gonna die when you hear about it! For Christmas, we (as in Damon and I) are getting some new bedding. I went with a red and gray theme after a LOT of deliberation. I wanted the pillows to be what really sets everything off. One particular bedding set I saw online (didn't purchase it..but its what inspired my red/gray theme) had this pillow that I just fell in love with. A charcoal gray sweater pillow. It was SO cozy and just made the bedding set. Well..after searching online and in stores and the cheapest thing I found was $25..I decided there HAD to be a better way! I wasn't spending more on one pillow than I did on our comforter (it was on sale!!). So to pinterest I went..and came up with a great solution! Buy a sweater and turn it into a pillow! And it was SOOOO EASY! All I did was turn the sweater inside out..sewed close the armholes and neckhole...then turned it right side out..slid in a pillow (that I already had..$$ saved there!)..and sewed the bottom closed! The best part is I got the sweater for only $7
My last project on this very crafty day was a fitted sheet for Makayla's toddler bed. I knew it was something that could be done..I just wasn't sure how. So again..I headed off to pinterest where I found the perfect tutorial. I'm one that can sew, sure, but when following a pattern I have a really hard time. But this one was so simple even I was able to follow along easily! And I tell you guys..had I known back when I first had Makayla what I know now..I would have never bought the first crib sheet for her. I made this fleecy, soft fitted sheet for her for a little over $5. I bought her a flannel sheet for her bed last year at toys r us (which was also the only place I could find flannel crib sheets) and spent around $15 for it. The results were awesome..and Makayla loves her new sheet!
(ignore the stuffed kitty in the middle of the bed)
So there ya have it..3 projects in 1 day! And in case I forgot to mention it..the last project (the sheet) I did while Makayla was awake..she was actually at the sewing machine with me..on my lap..helping as I sewed!
