Fall Projects

Joe and I are a crafting duo. I’m learning alot of useful skills. Joe is teaching me how to knit. I’m currently working on a pair of longies for Jude. They are brown and blue striped. So far I’ve only finished the cuff of one leg but I can tell they are going to be super cute! I’ll post more pictures as I get more done.

Joe is currently knitting a hat for his Halloween costume. Pictures of the final product will be available when I post our costume pics this weekend.
In addition to learning how to knit and I am also learning how to sew. Last Christmas my mom bought me a sewing machine and I used it for the first time yesterday. My mom came over and gave me a brief lesson. The first real project I finished was this cloth wipe for Jude. It’s pretty simple just a double sided flannel square. It’s not perfect but it’s also my first project and I’m proud of it.

  1. What are the dimensions on your wipes? I'm trying to decide whether to make wipes, buy reusable, or use disposable. Let me know how you like it.

    Your projects look good!

  2. The wipes are 7×7 inches. I just cut 8×8 inch squares and straight stitched them with a 1 inch hem. We have been using disposable but have just decided to switch to cloth… we'll see how it goes.

  3. I am jealous…I need a sewing machine. I love the orange hat! You lucked up to marry such a domestic man!

  4. How's the cloth wipe experiment working out? And it's flannel on both sides versus flannel and terry?
