Even though I haven’t been running, I have kept myself busy with other hobbies. I recently scored a sewing machine on Craigslist for $20 (closer to $50 once I ordered the pedal and manual) and was super excited to try it out and do some projects.
Here she is:
She’s from the 80’s, but all metal and good construction as far as I’ve read so hopefully she lasts me through many a sewing project.
The first thing I tackled was a little stuffed lamb for my cutie pie baby. I found an adorable pattern on Dolls and Daydreams, and couldn’t wait to make it. I am a little nutso and I have to do things right when they pop into my head, so we are lucky to live in an area where Joann Fabrics is literally across the street. We have a Michaels, and a Hobby Lobby not too far too, so getting crafting supplies is always fun. Most of the time I drag my husband too, which he loves (not).
I got all my supplies ready, and got to work:

Note to self when learning to use the rotary cutter: Do not touch the blade. Very sharp. I cut myself immediately.
All cut out:
I couldn’t wait to add a face to it to give it to the baby, and she doesn’t seem to mind that it doesn’t have a face yet. I just love her!
