An end to the week of wips

Whew, I got so much accomplished this week! My wip pile is much smaller and more manageable, so I have rewarded myself by starting two new projects haha!

 

Now onto the rest of the finished wips!

A top I sewed out of material from an old pair of pj pants and added crochet embellishments to. Not the best, but I am pretty happy with it for a beginner sewer!

I finally got around to sewing a lining into the rainbow bag I made for this years ravellenic games.

Ok this one was not a wip, but the face washers and sheet  it is made out of have been sitting in my linen cupboard waiting to be turned into a cushion for a while, so I got it done while I had the sewing machine pulled out.

 

And finally I got Miss 9’s Winter set for this year finished.

Kids craft – Paper plate dream catcher

I was looking for something to keep my two year old occupied the other day, and I had a thought. While he is too young to introduce him to knitting or crocheting, he isn’t too young to have a go at some sewing!

 

I was considering making some sewing cards, but then remembered a pic I had seen on pintrest and off we went.

 

Obviously him being 2, I cut his plate, and pre punched the holes for him. Then I gave him some stickers, a large plastic needle with his choice of yarn, and off he went!

Afterwards I tied of his ends and lifted him up so he could hang it in the lounge room. He was so proud of himself! Showing it off to daddy and big sis!
