Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Book IC 35

This week the iron craft challenge was create something book related. I thought hard about this one. I just could not get myself to tear any of the books I had on hand, nor did I have any time to go and look for another book to tear up. Then I stumbled on a christmas fabric book I never finished. So I finished it! :)

I have the last picture of me sewing the books together. It was really thick so I chose a heavy duty needle, a long stitch, and lowered the tension- this helped it a lot. I opted for my clear open toe b/c it was about the same width as between the 2 sides, I could easily line it up, put my needle in the center position. Additionally I had to help guide the book through! Hmm maybe I chose the wrong loft for batting. Food for thought!

The end product! Now I have another christmas gift ready, just don't know who I am going to give it to but it is ready! :) It is a cute little story though!

Finally got this in, no on to the next iron craft challenge! :)

I never thought about how hard it would be to sew through all those layers!
