1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing Olympics 2010 on: February 06, 2010 12:14:01 PM
Hi all. I found this challenge for a Sewing Olympics on this blog and thought I'd help spread the word. The idea is to take on a somewhat challenging sewing project, work on it during the Olympics, and finish in time for the closing ceremonies.

I am getting in to applique more and more. Here are some new pouches I have made:

Upcycled wool pouch with a poppy. I made the poppy by burning the edges of a satiny fabric cut into a circle and sewed a button in the middle.

Houndstooth pouch with a rose. The rose is made from a strip of knit fabric that I sewed while folding it around and around.

I have seen mustaches becoming more popular, so I jumped on the bandwagon. This bag is made from an upcycled mens shirt.

I am still experimenting with applique. Made these birdie coasters. Husband thinks they look like cats with a funny tail...I guess they kinda do!

This was my first time doing any applique.

I think I will make more for Christmas gifts.

I thought I had posted this before, but I don't see it, so maybe I am going crazy. Anyways, I made these for a friend's upcoming baby shower.
2 burps (made from trifold cloth diapers), 2 bibs and booties.
