Something for the boys...

This afternoon I have spent a little time with my trusty roller cutter, cutting mat, patterns and pins to work on a little something for the boys (while they are taking a short nap!).

This is what I'm currently working with. Both lots of fabric were gifted to me.

Cutting fabric still scares me silly sometimes. I can be a perfectionist - or maybe it's just that I am scared silly of making a mistake (sewing machines and roller cutters still have that effect on me I'm afraid). Then there is the possibility of breaking out the "new to me" sewing machine that I received from Hubby's Grandmother a couple of months ago. That too will be a learning curve. Anyway, I'm hoping to have some of it done by the weekend.

For more productive creations, have a look here...

And stop by tomorrow for a little completed hookey! :)

  1. Oooh I wonder what you are making! Good luck with your creation.

  2. Cutting fabric is always scary, no matter how long you've been sewing, I reckon! Love the little alligators! So cute!

  3. Cute fabric!! Just go for it... I'm sure it will all turn out just fine :)

  4. Ooooooh! Can't wait to see what you come up with! Happy Thursday and happy fabric cutting! YOU CAN DO IT!!!
