A Crafty Sunday October 1, 2007

Filed under: attempted sewing,family,other crap i do — gnathalie2 @ 12:06 am

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!!
