DIY – Nostalgia, my very first application

Two years ago I sewed a table runner (my first) as a present. It was then that I made applications for the first time and noticed how much fun it was for me.

Today I just wanted to show what I had done this year with the rest of the fabric from the table runner. And yes, it went to the same person as the table runner hihi

I noticed that I hadn’t posted the table runner at all, like many things I had sewn myself.

OK, here it is. I found the idea of sewing birds with fabric printed with birds funny.

Here’s a pair of birds. I had found something similar on the internet and used it for my own good.
The black seam, which is not very even, I made extra like this. I thought it looked better that way.

The only things I don’t like anymore are the eyes and the beak. Today I would no longer sew them with the machine, but with my hand.

It was not only my first application, but also the first time that I sewed such a corner. Thanks to Youtube 😀

And now for the table runner. There are some things I sewed that I don’t like anymore, but I still like the table runner ❤

But now to the part I wanted to post today.

I still had some fabric in my closet and was thinking about what I could do with it. It should go to the same person as the table runner, so it wouldn’t be bad if I found something that fits.

It was the time before Easter where you can buy Easter decorations in all shops. There I saw a basket in white and I got the right idea what I could sew.

The basket is big enough that you can put flowers in it in spring or a rabbit at Easter 🙂

Maybe I should learn how to sew stuffed animals? Hihi

I also got new nautical fabric

Fabric 3

do you see the one with the stripes? One side is blue, the other side is red. This fabric is a little thicker. I;m not sure will I sew 2 shorts or one 5 pocket jeans?

The 2 fabrics on the left will get blouses, the dark blue is jersey and will get a nice tee

The nautical fabrics are from my fabric store where I’m learning to sew. Every saturday I tell myself not to buy a new fabric. But when I see the new ones I had to have them hehe
