Time management used to be my forte. I live by lists and labels. Somehow I can't seem to fit it all in any longer. Must be my age? Perhaps I just no longer worry so much if I get it all done. Whatever it is it is making my lists longer and my nerves frayed lately. Tackling projects that should only take a few hours now are taking days. Wait...I got it...its my kids. We live too close to the schools for bus service but not close enough to walk! That leaves me the taxi. In other words...start and stop on projects. But today I finished a fun little project that produced sweet little storage and I managed the kids car lines.
Drawing inspiration from my favorite designer Janelle Wind. These three fabric bins have always been on my to do list. I however needed to make them my own.
Polka dots...primary colors and children's hankies.
Yards of homemade ruffle trim. I have tried my ruffle foot attachment several times with very little luck. Not a big fan of the large hem stitch either as the thread often breaks when I pull too hard. This is my preferred method.
This way I have full control of the ruffles and placement. I sewed right down the middle to give it a double ruffle look. It will look fuller when done this way.
Another project with such sweet results. Sweet hankie images ready to fill with storage in a nursery or studio. Hang a tag with a safety pin to label and your set.
Love how the ruffle graces the floor. I am so surprised how much they hold.
All nested together. You can just see the bands at the tops perfectly placed.
A perfect trio of dots to fill...
