#MicroblogMonday – I had something

I had a cute/witty/funny title and short blog post for today and then I forgot what it was that I wanted to write. Instead you get a rambling me with nothing really important to say.

I have several craft projects in the works and not much energy to get them fully started or completed.
I have enough buttons, bought second hand, to make heaps of cards, bracelets, necklaces or anything else my kids and I desire.
I’ve got zippers to make flowers.
Cloth to sew bags and veggie/fruit bags, doll blankets and more.
I’ve even got a skirt to make (I’ve had the fabric for at least two years) and a dress to take in. I just need to get my behind in gear.

What projects do you have in the works or want to have in the works?

#MicroblogMonday – cloth letters

Yesterday I started sewing Paxlet some cloth letters.
I got the idea from Twin Talk, who in turn got it from someone else. They were easy and fun to make. I plan to make the entire alphabet, plus maybe a couple extras of the most used letters. First, I need to buy more of the quilt batting before I can make the rest of the alphabet.
I realized only after I had made the S that the pretty patterned side isn’t the “right” side. 😦


At the request of Paxlet and Mr Siili, I also quickly sewed a blanket and pillow for Paxlet’s Ghost (nightlight), so that it would have a bed of its own and not need to share his blanket at night. He has enough other toys/stuffed animals that share his blanket. (And even more if we would let him.)
The cloth for these projects is re-purposed clothes and an old Muumi (Moomin) pillow case.
