I decided to practice sewing by making baby tag lovies. There are several people having babies soon and I thought they would make sweet gifts IF I can learn to sew straight. I read these blogs for instructions and hints:
When I get the hang of sewing straight, I'm going to make one using minky for my great-nephew, he is due in Nov. so I have plenty of time to practice. It irks me, though, that I can sew straight on a scrap piece of fabric, ugh! I bought the fabric and ribbon at Joann's. I learned to test the ribbon before using it on this though, one of the ribbons "pulled" when I ran my finger across it-not good for chewing on. Anyway, pretty I'm happy with how it turned out and look forward to making more of them.
