Now the long and hot summer days are over. I didn't feel like sewing with the machine during these days. And yet, some little projects could be finished outside, while sitting in the shadow.
Some elephants (my "favourite" animal) with little bells in the belly were made with minky fabric which I still had from the various blankets I recently made. These cute and soft animals are perfect little gifts. I made eight of them and seven are away already. Many of our friends became parents or grandparents this summer.
The blankets with minky fabric have a front of flannel fabric. They go as a gift together with a pouch for diapers.
I also tried to sew little bears. The two prototypes now belong to my two little grandchildren. I am not very convinced about the shape and I think that I need another pattern. The music boxes hidden in a star and a sun were further little projects with minky fabric. Luckily the two grandchildren don't mind yet the actual design which is far from being perfect ;-) !
Actually eight blankets for children are finished and ready to go to a refugee center.
Being away from home for a few weeks in due time, I had to sew a certain amount of hear pillows in stock for "my" hospital. They need every month about 18 to 20 hearts for their breast cancer patients.
My pile of UFOs is growing. At the moment I try to finish some placemats. I am looking forward to the long autumn evenings with more time for my sewing machine :-) !
