Day Time Cover - First Attempt!

For the longest time I've been thinking of little things I would like to create using felt. I never had the time to drive out to the frabic store but earlier this week, I made time to stop by. I can say that I was little overwhelmed by all the frabic, items, tools for sewing. I guess this is what it feels like for a non-scrapbooker to enter in a scrapbooking store! ;) Anyways, I found some fabulous inexpensive felt, some fun fabrics and voila I was set to start some projects. So today during nap time (gotta love nap time) I quickly created my prototype for my day time cover project. I plan on doing lots of these babies for some fabulous friends and I wanted to practice first as I am not a really good sower. Along the way I made notes and reminders for my next projects. This one isn't great, I'm not giving it to anyone, probably Danika will end up getting up but it was my learning experience and I really enjoyed it!!!



Tonight I'm eating pizza, watching The Hangover and wrapping gifts. Of course I'm not doing this alone, Dan has to help me. There are too many gifts to wrap! Once I'm done I just might come down to the basement and work on another felt cover! teeeehhhheeeee! ;)

That is adorable, Mel! I love to combine my scrapping with sewing projects - a journal cover is the perfect place to start! I just know you will be a natural! :)

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!!
