In between minding a fussy baby, I have managed to get in some sewing time. Thanks largely to the use of an electronic baby monitor that allows me to sew down in my studio and hear Evangeline if she stirs from her nap. Great invention. How did we ever manage without these devices that are available now?
My project du jour are these fun little eyeglass cases. I had some whimsical Michael Miller fabric and decided to make some pairs of eyeglass cases and matching cosmetics bags. They go together so fast, especially if I do an assembly line process. Iron on the fusible batting, sew on the contrast strips, put in the zippers, top stitch, etc.
They hardly take any fabric (less than a fat eighth) and take no time at all to make. Anyone getting Christmas gift ideas???? How would you like to make a dent in your gift giving (but not in your budget) and be done by the end of May?
Thanks to all of you who were so kind as to send Grandpa a get well card! I plan to go visit him in the nursing home this weekend and will take all that have come thus far. He is going to get such a kick out of receiving them from all over the country--and some from such far away places as Canada, New Zealand and England!
