This is what it was for:
A bedwarmer for my mom - pattern brilliantly designed by Ashley. (Free pattern is here.) It's such a great invention. You heat up the little rice pillow inside, put the pillow in the cover, and put the whole toasty mess at your feet (or on your neck or head or wherever, really). Toasty and cute!
Here is the little rice pillow:
And another close-up of (my first attempt at) piping:
I went on to make two more bedwarmers that I will show you later. Just so you know, the fabric may very well be too much for you to handle. Consider yourself warned.
Other warnings/A peek at some information I plan on sharing with you:
- My back goes out more than I do.
- I was gifted a sewing machine that might also make waffles.
- If I hear one more conversation on my phone line that isn't the one I am having, I may give up on telephone technology altogether and rely solely on the Pony Express.
