I loved the Occupy Your Sewing Room movement started over at Cat Patches! This has been a busy week for me so it was a good mindset for me to think of myself as “occupying” my sewing room!
I completed the above memory pillow. This a simple and fun project and makes a lovely gift. This one is a gift for a daughter whose father died.
I completed several custom sweatshirt totes. This one we started with an inexpensive, plain sweatshirt and used iron-on letters. The photos are a blur because these were heading out the door as fast as I was sewing them.
I am beginning another memory pillow this evening which is beginning with a varsity jacket. The jacket belonged to a man my age who lost a battle with cancer. His sister asked me to make it – and I learned that he passed away today. She knew it was imminent but wants it to be a memory for his family.
I also completed two T shirt quilts – but I can’t share those, either, until they have been given as gifts!
So….my sewing room occupation has been successful, but there’s more to do!
