Remember when Princess set the goal of learning to sew? She has recently been inspired to get started. She is making her own creation of bags and she is very excited about it. She has spent a lot of time making her designs just right.
She is thrilled with the results!
A couple of years ago, we stopped using paper napkins and paper towels. Rags and dishtowels replaced the paper towels. I found napkins at Goodwill to replace the paper napkins, but I've never really liked them. I thought a fun sewing project would be to make my own napkins. Our dishes are FiestaWare in a variety of colors. I found these Fabric Quarters in colors that will go really well with our dishes. I plan to follow this tutorial.
I also bought some of the little necessities that I need to make Princess' dress that I told you about last week. I wasn't sure what size bias tape I needed, so I bought both and will return the one that's the wrong size. I needed to order 1/4" clear elastic (found it on Etsy) because the fabric store didn't have it. Hopefully, I'll get to finish the dress by next Thursday?
On the photography front, I decided to buy my own copy of The Digital Photography Book, Volume 1 & Volume 2. These books rock!
I'm still doing my weekly workout and this week I had help from the Lizard King. If I'm going to reach true muscle failure, I need someone to grab the weight when I just can't move it anymore.
Now head on over to Cate's to see goal updates from around the world!
P.S. Princess trotted this week at her riding lesson!! Looks like the fear is behind her. :D
