Yesterday I got back in the sewing room to work through more of the serger projects. I finished the edges on some postcards that I'll share as soon as one is received by my brother for his birthday. He reads my blog every day and I don't want him to see it here first.
After the cards were done I got back to the walker caddies that I cut out weeks ago. I had a basket of leftover hand dyed denim scraps from various projects over the past few years and I cut them out using this pattern from my local organization. But once I started putting one together I realized that it wasn't a great pattern. The straps are way too long and there aren't any side straps to keep it from swinging.
I had to re-work it.
These photos are the 2 sides of 1 caddie. I don't think this one is perfect either but it's better and much more functional. I needed to work within the parameters of what I had already cut out so this is what I'm going with.
I spent the rest of the day cutting out large pockets and lining for the other 8 caddies. They are all ready to sew up today and I cleared out more fabric from my stash. But at the end of the day I still had an stack of denim scraps big enough that I didn't feel like I could just toss the out.
This is where the serger comes in real handy. I just started sewing them together randomly to see what I could come up with. What we have here is another pet bed cover!
Something out of nothing. I like that.
This is what I'll be doing today. This weekend will be lots of cutting out stuff to get the piles off my cutting table. I hope you have a great weekend.
