New Sewing Projects

April 30, 2012

Filed under: Judi,New Products,Sewing — admin @ 2:28 am

I’m having a hard time deciding what my next sewing project should be! Since I broke my wrist in January, I haven’t really been able to do much sewing, and as it gradually recovers, I’ve started doing a bit of sewing here and a bit there, but I haven’t yet undertaken any projects that I’m really excited about. Mostly just finishing off a few things that have been started for a while.  I will be starting soon on a baby quilt for grandchild #2, but since we don’t know the sex yet, and I want to incorporate the baby’s name into the quilt, that project is kind of on hold for another couple of weeks.

One of the new products that we got this spring is Clover’s new Trace ‘n Create E-Tablet and Paper Tablet Keeper templates. Since I have both an e-reader and a tablet computer that I like to carry around, I think that I will probably start my sewing here. These templates let you make two different styles of  cases – one for electronic tablets and book readers, the other to keep paper notepads, and both are in 3 different sizes – small, medium and large.

I’m going to make a case for my tablet, another for my e-reader, and a third for a paper notepad and when they’re all done, I’ll write a review for you, include photos of my finished projects, and let you see how you like them! Not sure when I’ll have them finished though – in a couple of weeks I’ll be off to Kansas City for Quilt Market, and from there on to cuddle with a new grandbaby for a couple of weeks.

I’d love to hear from you too!   Like us on Facebook and write on our wall to tell us what sewing projects are keeping you busy these days. Post some pictures to – I’d love to see them.

Happy Sewing,
