Posted by Tanya. This weekend the only sewing I did was a few baby Taggies, one heart shaped and one that is supposed to look like a strawberry. The heart is MIA, Julia took off with it.
I also worked on some weighted lap pads for Jared's school. I have made about eight lap pads and one weighted blanket in the last few weeks. I never realized how messy it was to work with poly pellets. I have made a huge mess of the floor with escaped pellets. The worst was that one got down into my machine and into the bobbin case. I have broke more needles with this project than any thing else I have ever done. I ordered 75 lbs of the pellets. I have used close to 50 pounds. I learned to put polyfil in the end of rows and only leave small holes in the pads and use a funnel to pour them in. Here is a picture of three of them. I forgot to take a picture before I took them to the school.
Have you ever had a project that you have broke or bent multiple needles on?
