Its been awhile...

So its been awhile since I have posted... I have been busy though. My main projects have been Christmas gifts which have been keeping me busy and of course I cant post since someone might see something they are not supposed to. However I can sow you things I am making for Katie since despite her best efforts she has not mastered surfing the internet yet. I got this project from the book Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing for Baby. The idea was to make large letters that spell something, for example the child's name. This seemed and easy project and it was. I started by finding a font on the computer that I thought would work, I then printed them out a large as I could. I let Katie pick out the fabrics she liked and cut the letters. To assemble them the book suggests just using a zigzag stitch around on the outside around the edge leaving an opening to stuff them.

Once stuffed just sew them shut, easy. I think they came out good.
