Channelling the Crafter

So I'm trying something new. I'm trying to create rustic painted mason jars with tissue flowers for my Mere's big birthday extravaganza this weekend.  Of course, it was a gong show getting the chalk paint I needed.  So here's the start. They have two coats of paint, I hope that's going to be enough. I froze my butt off painting them outside tonight and have them drying in front of the fireplace.  I'll update you on the progress.

Self Binding Blankets

I'm so glad you made me learn how to do this!!  I made 4 of them today.  All rectangular blankets!!

I did figure out a little trick.  Sew along the sides right to the 1/4 in mark and then start the next side in the same spot that you finished the first side.  I'll try to take some pictures to show you when I make one tomorrow!!!

This is the first one I made ... Love the blue with the elephants!

The corner lines up really well!!

Here's number 2!!

I like how this fancy stitch turned out!  Might need to use it again!!

I need to hem the bridesmaid dress and alter my bathing suit tomorrow before I make more of these blankets!!

Happy Monday!
