My goal this summer was to learn how to sew. So... I got out the old machine and here are a couple of projects I've been working on. I've been having so much fun making things for friends!
When I went to Casa Grande back in July I went to Enrichment with my mom and we learned how to make these nursing covers better known as hooter hiders. I LOVE making these. I have made 3 so far and I just love picking out the material for them.
Then with the leftover material from the hooter hiders I make a matching burp cloth. So easy to make and really cute!
This was the first thing I made. A receiving blanket. My sister-in-law Ashlee taught me this one. I made mine a bath blanket instead. Again, really simple to make. I never knew sewing could be so easy!
This project I did yesterday in about an hour. It was inspired by Kyle's wife's sister, Lindsey. She redid a footstool so I hauled myself to DI and picked up a chair. I've been needing a piano chair and this worked perfectly! This was SUPER easy. It only took me about an hour. (then of course the stain had to dry but that's it!)
Here it is when I bought it.
Then I removed the cushion. It's the first time I've ever used a drill.
Then I stained it. I chose the dark walnut color to match my piano.
Stapled it on with a staple gun.
Lastly I sprayed Polyurethane on it to give it a nice shine and seal the stain and ta-da!! The finished product.
I love it! I'm sitting on it right now.
