Day 333: Shawl progress

It's been over a week since I worked on my beaded shawl. I never seem to have the patience to deal with the tiny beads on weeknights. I made a lot of progress on it today though. This photo shows that I've officially passed the halfway point of the border! Most likely it will take... Continue Reading →

Day 332: Hoodie seaming

I started seaming the back and arms of my hoodie. I've never done much sewing, so this was the first time I learned mattress stitch. I used this tutorial at Moogly. It's so simple and it looks so good! I wish I had learned this stitch much sooner!

Day 331: Hoodie progress

Day 330: Hoodie progress

I have added 5 extra rows to one side and 4 to the other. Once they're both even again I'll be pinning them together to see if everything fits! I'm so excited to be making something I can actually wear around the house in the winter.

Day 326: No-slip slippers

Since these are going to someone just home from the hospital, I wanted to make sure they would be stable on slippery floors. I added some bits of silicone caulk to the bottoms so they get good traction even in the kitchen.

Day 325: Slippers

When a loved one is in the hospital, what better get well gift is there than a pair of handmade fuzzy slippers? I finished one this morning and plan to finish the other at the hospital. It will give me something to do while waiting, and I know they will be appreciated.
