I am spending the day today at my sewing teacher's classroom for a holiday sewing open lab. Last night I got started on these two name pennants for a friend's kiddos. My sewing machine doesn't do a pretty satin stitch, so the letters are fused on but not edged yet. I'll satin stitch around them, sew the backs on, then attach the flags to some bias tape! I bought my older daughter one of these before I learned to sew and I love it- Now I just need to make one for my younger daughter. But her name has nine letters in it! What was I thinking???
I also finished this little tote for an eReader. The print panels on the front and back are pockets and there's an elastic loop coming over the top to the fabric covered button. It's lightly padded with fusible fleece. It's meant to just be an easy way to tote the reader around, the recipient already has a more protective cover for the actual reader. I've never seen the kind of reader she has in person, so I hope this will work! I made this up as I went along, and I'm pretty happy with it!
So, they're not perfect yet but it was good practice and I'll get it eventually!
Can't wait to check out what all you other Friday Night Sew-In folks accomplished!
