Tasha woke me up at 7:40 am, and even though it’s the weekend, i got up. Usually i spend all day cleaning up after the kids and bitching that i can’t ever sit down for a minute without all hell breaking loose. Today i spent like 4 hours online. Then Madaleine made me some super yummy birthday cookies, and she’s been making them without a recipie!!! I do believe i have a future baking queen on my hands!!!
I started making an amigurumi cat for Halloween, but i kept messing up the head shape. So i plugged in the sewing machine and went to town! Tasha has a couple pairs of camo jeans that don’t fit right anymore, so i cut those up and also a tank top i’ve had for years.
The cat’s eyes are from Luis’s shirt. I just cut out 2 of the buttons and did a zigzag stitch around it. The bunnys eyes are from Tasha’s tights. I cut out one of the flowers and then cut that in half and glued it on.
Tasha also jumped on the sewing bandwagon and made herself a bunny!
She used the foot parts of the tights for the ears, and then glued on felt eyes and a nose.
I also tried the bunny pattern from http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com/, and very quickly found out that i can’t sew circles on!!!! I think it turned out cute anyway!! And so did the kittens!
I have a pile of old clothes right on the living room floor, and really i did not feel like driving over to Goodwill today !! The house is trashed again, but i had such a calm, boring day playing with the sewing machine!!
