Creative Baby Step

Lately I haven’t spent much time with my sewing machine. It definitely hasn’t been from lack of desire. The want-to-be artist within me has been very anxious to create. However, one thing after another kept getting in the way.

Today I NEEDED to sew! Instead I started cleaning/reorganizing my studio. Along the way, however, I came upon a small piece of wool felt that I bought several months ago to make some baby shoes. Aha! Just what I needed to get my sewing “fix”…a quick project! (Felt baby shoes are quick and easy since they need no lining.)

They came together so quickly that I decided to use the same material to make a flower for a hairclip.

I would much rather use the flower for a baby headband, but I don’t have any headband material that I think it would coordinate with very well….not even some plain black elastic.

At least I was able to create something today! And yes, I did manage to get the studio organized. Now…if I can only keep it that way! If I get a chance, I will share the changes with you tomorrow.

Until then….
