Sunday Stash #1, originally uploaded by SewLaTea.

I know, I know, its Monday…but I had a crazy busy weekend and couldn’t get to the upload until today. A day late, but its here. So excited for these fabrics…hmmm, what to make, what to make?!
Any ideas? I was thinking of the Flutterby Quilt…I think the Anna Maria Horner will look awesome in that pattern. If I do that I’ll need to get some more 1/2 yards from Fabric Supplies 🙂 Anyhoo. Time to get some sewing done (I really need to finish the Birdie Sling!!) Man am I slow!

Crayon Rolls, originally uploaded by nikkifilo.

I am so glad to finally be posting these!!!! It took me a couple weeks to get all the cutting and sewing done…but I think it was worth it 🙂
I used this tutorial: Skip to my Lou which was super easy to follow 🙂
I made mine a little different, and had I been sewing during the day when lighting was good, I would have photographed my progress. Instead of using interlining, I used a light organic cotton batting. And instead of ties, I just sewed in some elastic. I figured these were for very young children who don’t yet know how to tie. I still can’t figure out why SOME of my elastic loops would end up twisting when all rolled up. I so carefully placed the elastics when sewing…I just can’t figure it out! Oh well, most of them were straight and neat. Lastly I skipped the ric rac…how dare I right?! LOL. Well, I needed them to be as simple as possible as I had to sew 30 of them!!!!
Anyway, back to Sophie’s quilt…yes, baby girl Sophie Alexandra was born just a few days ago, and three weeks early I might add!!! The quilt is going to be a little late I’m afraid, but I think Meg will understand! Welcome to the world baby girl 🙂
