First, I used The Purl Bee's tutorial to make this drawstring bag. I was happy with how it turned out! It took a little longer than the tutorial suggested it would, but I expected that! I had a few mistakes, as in sewing the bag shut - oops! But after my work with the seam ripper, it all worked out. I found this adorable fabric at Hancock Fabric and was super excited to use it.
Then I created a half-apron using Prudent Baby's Fat-Quarter Apron tutorial. This project turned out to be a little more difficult than I had imagined! The problems were caused by the elastic trim I chose to use on the apron. It made me think of the pink boas that breast cancer survivors wear at the parade, so I went with it. I should have stuck with a non-elastic trim, but I had no idea! Luckily, my fellow Mama, Sara, helped me figure it all out and I finally got it finished! I learned a lot about my machine and sewing through the troubles I had with this project, so it ended up being alright.
Lastly, I decorated some plain tea towels I found at Target with some breast cancer awareness fabrics and patterns. They turned out alright, I like some better than others. My husband says I am too hard on myself and I am just learning and with practice I'll get better. I'm sure he is right, but my perfectionism can get to me at times!
I then grabbed all the goodies, and placed them inside the drawstring bag. I hope the person who wins it enjoys it, as much as I enjoyed making them! I was pretty proud of myself for my sewing work.
