This was a fast and easy project, even for a beginner. I don't work a lot with knits, but they are comfy to wear, so I'll be doing more.
Here's a look at the shoulder, gathered with two strips of elastic. Easy peasy!
I had some kid-free time this morning, so whipped up one of these Do-Rag Sports Headbands from Brown Paper Packages. Another easy and useful project, especially for me and all my fly-away hairs. This will be great for biking, but I used it in my sewing room, too, and it was nice not to have my hair falling in the way as I hunched over my machine. It took about five minutes to sew, and there are measurements for adult, child and 'itty bitty' sizes. Here's mine:
The last item for today is a picture of the pillow covers I made a while back. I promised a photo and then forgot to take one before I gave the covers to their new owner. 'Luckily' I managed to insert the wrong fabric in two of the pillows so they came back to me. Here's the fixed up version (there were two like this and four with just the printed fabric):
Next up on my project list are a couple hair bow holders for two sisters having a birthday party on the weekend. I think they'll make cute and useful gifts.
