Happy Sunday, friends! (And lycklig söndag to my Swedish readers!)
Jordan and I went to church this morning where it was youth Sunday, which means the youth in the church do everything: they greet, they usher, they sing, they preach. It’s pretty cool. Anyway, they were fabulous and I was so glad we got to experience that! Afterward, we came home and had tomato soup for lunch. (With grilled cheese for J and tater tots for me!)
Then, I turned on some Netflix and made this cool belt! I started by wrapping fabric around a strap of canvas to make the fabric sturdier. The canvas came wrapped around the blankets my aunt gave us for Christmas. =)
Then the kitties got involved and started playing with my thread.
So I built a wall to keep them out.
She looks disgruntled back there, doesn’t she? Anyway, after that I sewed both ends of the fabric into a point.
Then I attached velcro after trying it on and marking where it overlapped.
(That’s actually the velcro that came off of the canvas strips I wrapped up to begin with! Recycling for the win!) After that, I made a big bow out of complementary fabric and stitched that on. Here’s Fantasia rocking our new belt!
Craft 24 of 52: Complete! Mama Pihl pointed this out yesterday, and I think she’s right: I’m way ahead of schedule! Sweet!
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of this lazy Sunday afternoon while J and I go see The Hunger Games! (And may the odds be ever in your favor!)
