This week my mom came to visit for a couple days. Our plans revolved around sewing this visit. I kind of got a little burnt out on crocheting and knitting. (I promise this was very temporary). I ended up getting this big urge to sew. This is very common for me. I get impatient or burnt out on a project and need to move to something else.
I had two sewing projects in mind. I wanted to make a cute “I Spy” Matching Game from here. And also a Scripture Cover for my Bible, which you can find here. Last Sunday I took a little trip to Joann Fabrics to get some things I needed, including a rotary cutter which is awesome to have. I got fabric for the matching game but waited on fabric for the Scripture Cover.
This is some of the fabric for the game. I will make two squares from each fabric
Then the other side of each square is all the same pattern. I chose this brown and pink fabric. Love it!
When my mom got here, we headed back to Joann’s and got the rest of our stuff. I picked out the fabric for the Scripture cover. This was the project I wanted to focus on the most.
I looooove the fabric! The pink cotton fabric is so pretty. I only needed a 1/4 of a yard but I got a whole yard so I would have extra. The green is also just a favorite color of mine. I was liking this project before we had even started.
I am so thankful that my mom was here to help me. I always seem to pick projects that are way too advanced for me. I am still a beginner for sure.
So here it is!
I can’t wait to bring it to church with me Sunday
It’s definitely not perfect, but that’s ok with me! I think the little flaws here and there just make it more special. I can look back when I get more experience and see my progress.
The green fabric is like a canvas so it’s really sturdy.
This project taught me a lot of skills and patience for sure. The best is looking at it and loving it more and more. I can’t wait to finish the match game for Hailey, which is definitely more my skill level.
I also think I am ready to knit and crochet again. I got my fill of sewing for a couple months. But I do still have to finish the match game for Hailey.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
