Curtains II

Another set of curtains made for our new sleeping area. It took me 2hrs this time; 1.5hrs faster! :)

Hubs didn't know it was curtains until I started putting it up.

Now we can sleep tight in the day time too!

My sewing machine breezed through 6 layers of thick fabric! Much better than my old machine that couldnt quite get the tension right with loopy bobin thread.

Cutting mat

I bought a new cutting mat (60cm x 90cm) from Art Friend while waiting for hubs to check out some books at Bras Basah. This mat is 4 times bigger than my existing 12 year old mat and occupies slightly more than half of my sewing workspace. Now it's much easier to cut fabric blocks accurately.

Totally in love with it! :)

Crib sheets!

The baby cot was delivered last Sunday and I finally could get the measurements to make crib sheets for our little boy.

3 completed! I hope 4 crib sheets (1 came with the cot package) would be enough? :)

I've also sewn 4 pillow cases. Need to do cot bumper next! Hope I can finish before baby Colin greets this world. :)
