November Friday Night Sew In
Happy Sunday evening everyone. I am very excited to show you what I have been working on all weekend. I started with the FNSI sponsored by Heidi and Bobbi and this project spilled over into the whole weekend because they are addictive-I warned you! A good friend shared this pattern with me and I have enjoyed making them for so many reasons. They have a small material list, they can be easily prepped(cut) with just a mat and rotary cutter, there are all straight lines to sew, they are a blast to choose fabrics for them, and they make the perfect gift for just about everyone. The tutorial is from LaRae Bunnell Clark and it makes the 10 minute table runner. I made the corn one for myself first to see if it would really turn out well. I loved it so I moved on to make gifts for a couple of family members and a couple of friends.
I had alot of fun picking out buttons for each one. This next one is going to be hard for me to give up.
And, last but not least, I wanted this one to look old fashioned because the person I made it for has a primitive colonial look to her home.
So what do you think? If you own a sewing machine, you should give these a try. They are fun to make in holiday prints and I was thinking one would even look pretty as a dresser scarf or on a buffet. I would love to see pictures if you make some. But remember, if you get carried away and make a ton of them, I warned you!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family and good food. I am trying a couple of different side dishes this year, one from the Pioneer Woman. I will let you know how that goes. Have a wonderful week and take care. Nancy
