The sewing calendar 2010 project

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 :

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 😉

I’m late for this project : my son was sick and I didn’thave time to work on it earlier. My son is actually still sick, so I had to take a day off from work. I did this project during his nap and I did it for him !

I was not as careful as Sarah was: I didn’t sew the ribbons first. I just pined them on the first fabric, put the second one on top and sewed everything together, on the wrong side. I just left an opening, returned to the right side and removed the pins. Finally, I seamed all over again and that’s it !

What do you think? The pattern will match the stuffed animal (elephant) I did for my baby a few months ago 😉

March will be a difficult month… I’m not inspired by the projects. I mean, I know that’s it’s impossible to be thrilled by every single project, but still … March projects look boring / useless and  I don’t think I will enjoy working on them.

Here is the list :

– recycled bath mat : I actually just finished it ….. just one word : Crap !

– Sewn invitations : yeah … we already had a card for Valentine’ Day .. Not to mention that I don’t have any invitation to send …

– Bow tie Hair clip : I have a baby boy, not girl … This one might still be funny though …

– Snuggly Ribbon Blanket : useless for me … and I don’t really like the look …

– Robot Doll Pocket Pillow : I already messed up the matyroshka doll …This project is pretty much the same but instead of a doll, it’s a robot …

– Ric Rac Dahlia Brooch: is it a sewing project or a craft project? seriously …

– Fabric Basket : ok, this one ay be the best of the month ! I can’t wait !

– Shower cap : ok, joker …. Not sure I’m interested in this one … at all …

I can’t wait being in April !

End of February !! I already accomplished 15% of the calendar !! This project did not really inspire me … I dont know anyone who would need a tooth fairy pillow, so  I wasn’t highly motivated …. I’m not sure about the result, but I did it, and that’s the main point !

The pillow doesn’t look like a fluffy pillow : I don’t have anything to stuff anymore. I used some batting instead.

My son is beyond pacifiers during the day. He is just using one to sleep.  So, I was quite concerned about this project … Then I found another use for this pouch : it will be my key pouch ! I am always trying to find my keys, always forgetting some of them (work or car or home …) … I feel like this will soon be a situation that won’t happen again!

The tutorial was easy to follow and super quick: I think I needed more time to choose the fabric than to sew the pieces together. I didn’t use vinyl though, since I won’t use the pouch for pacifiers.

I like the result, I think it will be useful 🙂

And now the pictures :

First of all, sorry for the delay. I should have finished and posted this project yesterday. My son was sick this week-end, so I didn’t have much time for sewing …

I knew from the first look that this project would be hard but great. I was right ! It was challenging for me but I looooooove the result. I was expecting a bigger bag, but otherwise it’s even better than in y dreams 🙂 Go check Ayumi’s blog : it’s fantastic ! I think I will try some other tutorials!

I didn’t have any cord so I used a ribbon, and it works perfectly fine. If I ever get some cord, I might replace my ribbon with it, but looks OK the way it is. I used 8 different fabrics for the outside patchwork, another one for the top part, and a plain orange one for the lining.

Here are the pictures, tell me what you think !
