I actually finished this blanket quite a while back – except for the fringe. For some reason, I always get to the point of putting on the fringe and then stall.
Nothing goes to waste in my sewing studio and both the cats and I are happy about that.
When I first heard about making cat beds out of scraps of fabric and batting I wondered how they would launder. I’m happy to report that mine launder very well.
One of the online charity crafting groups that I belong to, Sew For Kids Volunteers, has projects that they work on throughout the year. Members of the group are free to participate in the group projects or to make other things. I tend to skip around and do a lot of my own thing because for the most part I consider myself more of a quilter than seamstress, crocheter, or loom knitter…though since joining Sew For Kids Volunteers I’ve branched out from quilting into all of these other areas and am beginning to see myself more as an all around maker of things.
Anyway, the current project at Sew For Kids Volunteers is to make summer clothes for the children at Pine Ridge. I’m not much of a seamstress, but a while back I did sew some doll clothes that turned out pretty well. I figured if I could make doll clothes, then surely I could make people clothes too….
