Fun Monday - Projects


This week's Fun Monday is hosted by Blue Momma. The assignment is to share any unfinished projects that may be lying around the house. I only have one around the house and thats because I started it yesterday. Usually, if I start something, I can't wait to see the end result, even if it means cutting down on sleep time.

The project I started yesterday is a Shopping Cart Cover for Aaron. Can you imagine how many hands, that also handle money, touch a shopping cart? So, I'm going to make a simple cover that I can throw over the front part where Aaron sits in. There are fancier covers in the market with padding and leg holes but I'm just going to make mine a single layer with a leg flap. This is going to be hand sewn so I'm not going to be too ambitious.

A single meter of this cute print cost me USD 2.50 and its nearly two meters wide. I'll have plenty left over for something else. Yesterday, I got as far as getting my measurements, marking them, cutting the material and hemming one side.

You and Agnes would get along well. she always has at least three or four different projects in various stages of completion. The shopping cart cover is a great idea!

I'm a pretty good sewer - but I detest sewing. Good luck with your project - see you soon. Kellan

Pssst... I need someone to sew those buttons that popped out from my coats and I've been too lazy, or rather, have not set any time aside to do that. You want to do that for me? :-D

Very ambitious!

What a great little project. And that fabric is adorable!

Good for you.

I just put my fingers in my ears and go lalalalalala when I think about the germs.

That's quite a cool unfinished project. I have a sewing machine, but I don't really know how to use it. I'd love to be crafty, but just don't have the gene for it.

What a GREAT idea! I never thought of that! You'll get it done - soon enough...and I can't help, b/c I can't sew. :-(

I'm just impressed you can sew. I know for a fact my son became sick from one of those things, so you are certainly smart for doing it.

WorksForMom said...

You can sew? Wow, now that's some talent!

As a germaphobe I think this is a fantastic idea! Lots of ambition to take on that project though. I wouldn't even know where to begin.

You should make them and sell them. Thats a fantastic idea.

I suspect 50% of kids bugs get passed on shopping cart handles. Ewwwwwrgrp
