One thing that has been on my to-do for this Christmas break was to have a sewing day with my DD1 (age 13) As this was our last realistic day that it would be possible, we got cracking to make a couple of reversible journal covers. Thanks to Lara from Kirin Notebook we had a great tutorial to follow.Both were sewn on the little Bernina my DH bought for us last year. It's such a lovely machine to sew on and just right for the DD1 to practice her sewing skills.
These are the finished covers...I think they are very cheery.
We were done in plenty of time for me to start on another tutorial I found on Oh, Fransson for a door stopper. We have one door in our house that blows shut during the summer and this is the perfect solution. I used some denim and oriental charm squares that have been waiting to be made into something special and used dried chick peas to fill it. I'm thrilled with the results.
Well 3 posts in 3 days!! I think that's a record.
