home ec projects | second edition | kim learns to sew

A quick update on my sewing shenanigans! I seriously have the sewing itch. I love looking at fabrics and thinking of what I can make with them. How I can be crafty and save money. Here is one project from my Home Ec class (yes you will notice from this post that I am skipping around a little bit – project 8 is making curtains. They don’t scare me but I feel we are pretty set on curtains for the time being. I really have to think of the right fabric to put in our bedroom before I do it! Hopefully when things slow down a bit I’ll get to the curtains!).

Living in the community that we do fosters family life a great bit. And with that comes baby showers!!! This is the first time I have actually made something for someone. I’m really proud how all three items turned out. The reversible bib is the official Home Ec project, and I went a little further and made a burp cloth + a diaper bag tag. I have to say that Anne loved them and that is the biggest compliment!
