Sew it-Wrist Pin cushion

sewitblog_thumb
I finally dared!And joined Sew-it.I was very shy to join in,but Nima’s kind words were encouragement enough:)
I am glad I did.
This project was super cool..I finished it in half an hour flat!But,Oh My God!I can’t tell you,how nervous I am when I start cutting the fabric..My heart was literally racing,ready to burst out of my chest.And to think,it was just scrap fabric!But,when I finished..I was so happy.
My finishing is not so good..bobbin wasnt filled correctly.I unwound(?) it waste of good thread..but I dunno what I could have done to save it.I refilled the bobbin again..and will try it again.I didn’t have polyfill,so,cut up a dish scrubber and used foam from it.still have a piece leftover for my next attempt.

Grubby little fingers,making a grab for Mamma’s new Bracel-let
My little Princess is suddenly into jewellery and she loved my new bracelet..and all my attempts of teaching her to call it pin cushion were met with”No mamma its ur Bracel-let!”
Well Whatever!!I am happy!!

Try and try till you succeed…

I got a new toy,about 2 months back..

my new sewing machine.
But I was adamant that I would only use it when I got a new table..I waited and waited..but it didnt happen..So,finally I gave up and opened the box..set up the machine on the dining table.
I found this cute teddybear fabric remanant in BigW and that was the reason,I gave up on waiting for the machine table.

I decided to make pajamas.I traced out one of Aadya’s trackpants on to the fabric and cut it..and then joined the pieces and sewed it..but something is off..the pajams are too tight,at waist.Ofcourse I havent put an elastic yet..but I know something is wrong.

I am so sad..may be I should try something even simpler?But almost everyone says pajamas are the simplest..may be pillow cases???yes thats it..I am going to try my hand at that next.
what you think,my 3 readers?some more simple projects?

Edited to add-I am trying to post pictures,but WP wont let me..check again later for pics of my sewing disaster:P
