Default I made Middie a bandanna today!

It took me a couple of hours. I sat out on the porch with him in the sunshine (it was soooooo warm.. almost as good as sitting on top of the dryer.. which of course I never do! ) and tried to convince him that YES, his rope toy IS tastier than the tomato I stick the pins and needles in... lmao.

His new bandanna:

Him modeling it for me (sorry I couldn't get him to look at me!):

The longer I sewed the more even my stitches became and the easier it became to sew.. so I guess practice does make perfect. I've got just enough material for another, and I think I'll at least start on it tonight. The next one I want to sew or write "Merry Christmas" on... not sure how I'm going to do that so it'll look good. Any suggestions? My only halfway decent idea is to spell it out in cursive with a ribbon and sew the ribbon on.

That's a nice bandanna! Are you artsy craftsy like my sister? She's always sewing and croche-ing and scrapbooking...

Your bandnana is LOVELY! I love the pattern. Did you only sew it, or did you make the pattern too? Amazing

If I had words to make a day for you,
I'd sing a morning golden & true
I would make this day last for all time
then fill the night deep with moonshine

Nicely done Nolu..........

You could Embroider on the words, it's not very hard at all. If you can hand sew, you can embroider

LMAO Lily! I wish! I got the fabric from Jo Annes (awesome sales... ***37;50 off of already cheap fabric was a steal), I just cut and sewed it myself. Coop, I already used this glitter glue stuff I had on it.. but if embroidering is easy I think I'll try it on the next one.

Sadie, he's not too thrilled about it. He gave me a look today when I put it on him that said "MOM!!! I'm NOT a girl, stop putting pretty girly crap on me already!"
