I am working out this slump by taking baby steps. I began by making all the ladies in the family scarves for Easter. Unfortunately, I have lost my camera! With any luck, I will find it when I get back to my classroom. What is a post without pictures?
Well, since the urge to walk into the sewing room is coming back, I took another step today and made new beanbags for my class. We will soon be doing "The Beanie Bag Dance." A little advice for anyone making beanbags: use brown rice. I have used beans, but the bags are a bit too hard and lumpy. White rice will give the fabric a white powder residue. Brown rice creates a soft bag without the residue.
I am thinking of taking a bigger step by trying my first sew-along. Karen over at Did You Make That? is hosting the Pyjama Party Sewalong--just my speed. I have the fabric, the pattern, and the desire again. I just have to find the camera!
