National Sewing Month Sew-Along

Pin It Now! Well if you follow my facebook page you know that this month is National Sewing month.  And if you know me at all.... you know I sew.  LOL!  (if you know me well, that is an understatement!)

So for National Sewing month I thought it would be fun to have a sew-along.  What is a se- along?  Where lots of people make the same thing at the same time.  This way they can talk about it and share progress, and pictures.  It is fun.  I had a bunch of people say they wanted to do it, and I hope they did... but they didn't follow through and post pictures for me.  A few have... and I love seeing them.

So I thought I would share my pictures of the T-shirt Hat and the Picnic Blanket Tote I sewed up this month.

T-shirt hat.  I made it using this tutorial: T-shirt Hat

My little D-doo likes it.  She wears it all the time.  I think I will make more of these.  They were easy to make and they were fun.

Then there is the Picnic Blanket Tote.  I made it using this tutorial: Picnic Blanket Tote

 Here it is all unfolded.... 
 Then all tucked up in the tote.... front
Then the back of the tote

This is super cute... it was easy to sew up too.  I made it up in a few hours.  This is a small blanket... really only big enough for one or two kiddos.  But it will be a perfect Christmas present for my little one.  She loves to have 'picnic lunches' in the living room while the big kids are at school, so this will be perfect for that!

I hope you have some fun sewing up this month!!  PLEASE do share what you sew I love to see, and get new ideas.

Happy National Sewing month from this mama to you!

Still Sane,
