I consider myself a very very very beginner sewer because 1. I have not spent very much time sewing and 2. I, as Brett would say and I would agree, lack attention to details, so most of my stuff is rough. However, I am happy to use and enjoy my creations. Especially if it means I got to save a few dollars in the end! Today I made a cute camera strap for my lovely canon camera and I also attempted and then practiced (A LOT) how to make a baby blanket with mitered corners! Yes, I also learned the term mitered corners today while you tubing and googling my project! Here is how I did...
First attempt... Whoa that is ugly. This was before I decided to look up how to do it! This is typically how I do things. Try, suck, google, try again, get a little better!
Getting a little better...
If you ask me, this looks much better.
Unfortunately, now I am out of the silk border so I have to head back to JoAnn Fabrics to get more! I am also working on our stairs up to the nursery so pictures will be coming soon! I did however, apply my first clear coat to them today and I have also painted the kick stops blue. Tomorrow is another clear coat and hopefully attaching the kick stops to the stairs and finishing them!
Here is a bit of a teaser!
