I totally disapeared from this blog, I’m sorry!
I have some really big news to share:
– I moved from California to UK
– Because of the voltage difference between the two countries, I needed to sell my sewing machine, and I can’t afford a new one right now.
So I’m giving up 😦
Hello Everyone !
I didn’t forget yhe blog or the challenge ! It’s just that I have had some issue with my sewing machine .. So right now I can’t sew 😦
I hope to be back very soon for the challenge !

This is the last project of my sewing marathon ! Actually, I did this one before the brooch … but anyway, this is almost the last project of March 2010. I already did 1/4 of the calendar !!!
I don’ t use shower caps, I don’ t find shower caps attractive or useful. As you probably guessed, I was not excited about this project. I chose the cheesiest fabric I had, and some lining that I usually use for wet bags fr my son’s diapers : I know it won’t leak ! Anyway, I didn’ t put too much effort in this project but the result came out great !
My son loves it and plays with it. I may try it once just to see how it feels, but don’ t expect me to take a picture of the cap on my head 😉
I just have for now the picture of the preparation step. I will come back with the result one later this week.
Here is the picture of the preparation :
I’m done for today, I hope you enjoyed the last few posts !

I was excited about this project ! I chose the same fabric than my bumper for my sewing desk : I want to use the basket to keep my desk empty. Just by looking at the picture, I was expecting a bigger basket, so I’m a little disappointed by the size, but the result still looks great !
The tutorial is well explained. I did a mistake though : don’ t sew the corner with the square shape !!
And now the pictures :

I imagined this project to be super fast and easy … I went to Walmart today and go some ric rac ribbon. I planed to spend about 30 minutes on it but surprisingly I needed way more time ! It requires patience 😉
I didn’t use a button or a pompom in the middle : I didn’t have anything that would have matched. The result looks pretty nice ! I just need a pin so I can wear it !
And now the pictures :

And the result :
What do you think? I really like it 🙂

Do you remember the Matyroshka doll ? Well, I didn’ t improve myself …
I really tried to make it work but I think it’ s too small for me .. So next time that a project like this one shows up in the calendar, I will double the proportions so it doesn’t turn out to be a disaster.
Well, the pictures …
And the (crap) result … I added a little mice or whatever it is so at least something looks OK in the picture 😉
Sorry I didn’t update my blog earlier. I had a bunch of work, a sick baby to take care of, and lots of different errances to run.
But I’m back ! I originally planned to tell you that I needed to skip a few projects, but I actually finished all of the late ones tonight except the brooch one : I first need to get the ribbon.
I’m too lazy to upload the pictures tonight but I will come back very soon !!
