I Made It!

I got a sewing machine for Christmas a couple of years ago and ever since I've been doing little projects here and there trying to figure out the whole process. I've had some successes and some failures. Okay, a lot of failures but with a little girl on the way I've got more incentive than ever to make some cute things.

A while back I found (thanks to DeAnna!) some American flag fabric at the SWAP shop and I have high hopes of turning it into a baby blanket. See the baby will be sleeping in our room for a least a little while and it's decorated in an Americana theme so I think a nice, country rag quilt made out of a flag would be perfect!

So yesterday I took some other fabric and made a practice quilt using these instructions. The fabric was a little thin and it could stand to fray a little more to make it look more "raggy" but I think the general idea worked.

Now to take on the American flag fabric!
