Sewing Challenges

This week I'm working on a variety of sewing challenges. The first one was easy, is done and the happy owner has it. I made a sleeve for fly rod, 36" long with slots of varying sizes to fit the poles.

The second one is slow going, I'm making a stuffed cat. My youngest granddaughter requested a pink jaguar, my son said anything in pink that resembled a cat would do. I found a McCalls pattern for a cat, had some pink fleece and cotton and I'm using a bit of black for ears and nose. I'm not fond of working with small fiddly pieces but I've almost got it done.

The third challenge is for another granddaughter, this one graduating from high school. When her sister graduated I made a t-shirt quilt for her, so that was requested for this graduation also. Today I got the box of t-shirts in the mail. It had 4 t-shirts, a cheerleading jacket, cheerleading uniform top and a head band.

School colors are blue and white, but granddaughters favorite color is pink and there is one pink t-shirt. I'm thinking of doing predominately pink and black for the fabric I add to it, I'll probably dye a pink to match the one pink t-shirt. I'll think it over while I finish the pink jaguar.

  1. Wow. That's a lot going on. You are brave and also organized to be able to do it all and do it well. I'm enjoying the colorful daily papers.

  2. Oh wow! Seems like you were really up for some challenges. So, how did everything go? I'm sure your granddaughter loved her cheerleading uniform so much. Not only was it made neatly, it was also made with so much love, seeing as you considered her favorite colors while making it. Thanks for sharing that, Linda! I hope to see more of your projects! All the best!
