Wow, I haven't stopped by my blog in a while! But I'm finally back to some sewing so thought I'd post about my new project.
But not until I show what I have been doing instead!
Visiting Farmer's markets, making jam and jelly and reading Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.
made with organic strawberries-yum!
and root beer apple jelly
made with Virgil's root beer (no high fructose corn syrup!) and organic apple cider from Hotchkiss, CO. I modified a root beer jelly recipe by adding apple cider in place of water.
(I haven't tried it yet but I love the color!)
now on to my new project-making a diaper tote bag for my friend Staci (who is due in 10 days!).
I am making a prototype since I am not using a pattern. Staci requested a tote bag with zippered top, end pockets for bottles, and waterproof lining. I decided to use my tiny stash of Orla Kiely dishtowels and laundry bag for my "muslin".
