Fabric-By-Fabric August: Swaddle Blanket

August Fabric By Fabric Sew along

Friends, this sew-along is not my friend. I’m telling you, I was 80% through this swaddle blanket (or as I like to call it, Death By Bias Tape blanket) and realized I was having ZERO FUN.

Sometimes these sew-alongs are a tough mission in simple following through. God bless Surya, Sue and Winnie for rocking this challenge:

Prizes coming your way!

Sewing sometimes just makes my impatience flourish. And if there is one piece you can’t be impatient with, it’s bias tape. It requires a lot of ironing, pinning and going slowly. Finally, I got the hang of it.

Guess what project we are doing next month? Sue’s! And it is a great one. She’s even put together a fantastic tutorial. No excuses this month!

The camera case looks both challenging and useful, which is more than I can say for my swaddle:

Oy.

You know how it works: project from Fabric-By-Fabric, photo in the pool, most participants receive prizes. Have fun!
