Put Your Sewing Where Your Mouth Is!

For the longest time I was afraid/intimidated/totally freaked out by some of the projects over at Hopeful Threads. I always wanted to participate but I thought my “sewing” skills weren’t quite up to snuff. I am beginning to realize that those were just my own little fears. You see, I consider myself a quilter, not a sewist, but I am working on changing that. I have made a handful of dresses now (5 to be exact), a couple pairs of shorts and now I have made my second ever stuffie. I am doing my best to put my sewing where my mouth is!

This month the project at Hopeful Threads is to fill Kristy’s car with FLUFF!  I am excited about this project as it benefits foster children, and it is my belief that every child needs someone to love. Here is the adorable owl I sewed up using a wonderful pattern by MyFunnyBuddy. I used some of my all time favorite Alexander Henry fabrics (they are leftovers from a dress I made Anne last spring).

Owl Squishy

You can see all the adorable items that have been sewn here in the flickr group. Are you sewing fluff this month?

    I think your owl is wonderful! Your sewing skills seem just fine to me each time you show something you’ve made that isn’t a quilt.
