                                  Started another blog!

I think I am a glutton for punishment, as I have started another blog.  I am inviting all of you to check it out, comment and join up.
I wanted a place I could play with decorating and food. Then still keep the sewing spot and do more tutorials on sewing.

Please give me a shout out:

                                         Love this, it was made by a local Indian.

               Keeping up the mess

 You have gathered all sorts of prints. I am trying to keep purple/lavender in all my prints because the person getting the place mats likes purple.

 Cut your scraps into strips. I chose to do 2" strips but you can chose any width you want.  Tiny one inch would be interesting.

 Now, you have another pile, those are the strips you have cut.  They are ready to apply.

 I used a basting spray to hold the filling to the backing fabric.  You could use pins, I just like using the spray adhesive
Now, lay out your strips in a design that will work for you.  All place-mats do not need to match as far as lay out, just use the same strips in each.

We will sew them down next.

             A sewing mess

I think we all make messes as we sew.  This is a new project.
I think it will be fun, taking it from mess to something else.

 I think you can tell what it will be.

           Lots of colors, always fun 
              to work with lots of colors.

Don't forget to check back and see what I make with all those colors.

                                   MY BUBBLE?ROMPER

For the challenge I chose the pattern, "Baby Leah".
It has variations that you can chose from and of coarse I choose to do the ruffle because I think little girls should be in ruffles as long as possible.
