So I bought a very thick sponge/cushion at a fabric store long time ago and forgot about it… But now, my dog has a minor back issue, I need to have extra steps he can use, so he does not have to jump up and down to go up to couches, beds, etc.
Then I thought about the cushion I bought (it was expensive) and I have tons of fabric my neighbor gave me when she was moving away. I have not sewn for a while, but I figured it should not be too hard. It is just rectangular shape. But I wanted a zipper, so I can take it off to wash it.
My dog fell asleep while I was working on it… Since it took a while.
So glad I got a serger! This fabric was unraveling so much, I could see it could cause problems eventually. So I cleaned it up with the serger. Love it!
Here it is! It is a bit loose, but the cushion is so dense, I could barely push it in there…
And he approves!
I have tons more sewing projects I would love to tackle during my summer break. I will see how much I get done…
Ever since I started working as an instructional aide for a special ed program, I have been making birthday cards for students since we celebrate their birthdays at school. We only have 18 students, so we get to know them pretty well, so I try to make cards that fits their personality. So it is fun to think about design every time!
My dog has a few friends he grew up with ever since we met at a dog park when they were all around 6 months old…
Frannie is one of them. Cute miniature poodle and CEO of Frannie’s Harnesses.
So I made this card for her 7th birthday. Boy, they are getting old. My dog is turning 8 this year. He is growing too fast!
I have been taking pictures of cards I make, but have not had much time to post… So 4 months later, I am finally posting Valentine’s Day boxes and card I made.
This is a box for my colleague who does not like chocolate much, so I had to make different size box to fit Sour Patch in. A small bag of it didn’t quite fit in, so I had to eat a few pieces… But he would not know, right?
Box for students and other colleague. I put a few pieces of Dove chocolates. I will make simpler boxes next year… I had to make 20 of these and it took way too much time! But kids were happy to receive handmade box of chocolates, so it was worth it! 🙂
And finally a Valentine’s Day card for my hubby. I wanted to make something simple. I got an inspiration from a design I found on Pinterest.
I need to start working on the boxes earlier also… I barely finished the day before!
So continuing from yesterday’s blog, here are a bunch I made. They are all similar to business card size. I really like the sizes of them, so I am planning to make more!
OMG! I have not blogged since last Dec??? I have made lots of cards since then and have photos… So I will start posting them slowly.
I made a bunch of thank you cards one day and my sister wanted mini version of it… These are in regular sizes (5″x7″ kind of size).
Here is one in a business card size. You can see its size next to a business card of a barber who does my undercut. My sister loved it!
So I made a bunch more… I will post them next.
One of our students is very into Hello Kitty, so I knew I wanted to make Hello Kitty card for her. I found an image and converted to png, and it worked! She really liked it. 🙂 The next day, she came in and said she put it up on a wall in her room.
I forgot to make a birthday card for my in-law until the last minute, so I picked the design and made it quick. She was very with the card, though.
My mom turned 70 this year, so I made a box card! It took a while to make these flowers, but I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
