Here's a run down on the sewing-related things I've gotten done. Some of them. I can't find pictures for a couple of things that I'm sure I've sewn since January.
Using this book by Sandra Betzina I made a puppet theater for the girls' Easter present. (Instead of candy).
The theater hangs on a tension rod in a doorway. This is the back (the performer's side) of the theater.
It's made with felt - and even though I used my walking foot to sew on the red strips (for stabilizing of the windows) it rippled some. I'm annoyed at that, but there's no way I'm ripping it out and doing it over!!!
Sandra's instructions didn't include curtains, but I didn't want what was in the background to be seen by the audience, so I dreamed up a way to include curtains. I'm really glad I did. They work perfectly. And the red stabilizing strips on the back serve as a clue for where to stick the puppet in front of the curtain.
The girls were tickled with it (H, C, and G more than O). And I also made a bag to keep it in (along with the puppets- which I did NOT make. I'm getting smarter in my old age - keeping things easy to clean up and store...I forgot to take a picture of the bag. I'm also getting forgetful in my old age!!!)
I made G a skirt:
And in case you haven't figured it out, those are high heels. White with black polka-dotted high heels. Mom bought the fabric!
And, O got a new dress for Easter.
And H's doll got a skirt and blouse.
I've got a more casual dress cut out for O. Plans of a dress for H. I've got a dress cut out for the doll. I think that's all.
