Here this is again. Well, I got this crazy idea to enter a competition...a sewing competition. It is over here. It is called "Sew-vivor". I entered this sewing project that I made. We will see how this goes. Next week they will post the Top 10. I know, crazy, but a whole lotta fun.
This was something I made for my family reunion auction. A little complicated but totally doable. First, I found pictures that I printed off the internet in the size I wanted. I then pinned them to a piece of white fabric and started cutting the outline. I had to be careful on the small pieces to make sure I didn't cut them off. I put wonder under on the appliques and ironed them on and then zig zagged around each piece. Then I found red cowboy fabric in my sisters stash and made a border and a back. I put a thin layer of batting between and pinned it all around. I used my machine to do the stitching. It was fun, but definitely my first time, and you can tell so don't look too close. When I was done with that, I used bias tape for the binding. Mostly because I was in a hurry. But then I had to do it twice cause the first time didn't work to good, so I might as well have used my own bias tape. Oh well, you live and learn right. I really liked how it turned out. It took a long time and only sold for $6. Definitely worth more, but it's a family thing, so I can't complain.
