Now, February is a short month, but I did get my stashbusting in - this month's theme was love, naturally enough, and the challenge was to make something for a loved one. Well, I held true to the theme, but not the challenge, since I made something for myself - or, more accurately, my cold feet.
Yes, it is a new hot water bottle cozy! My old one was very sad (navy polar fleece, it was on there forever!), and I happened to have a few pieces of this fun sweatshirt knit in the bins. I made a knock-off un-blogged sweatshirt with this fabric last year, which I tried to post, but taking photos of this stuff was a bit crazy. At any rate, there are a few hearts in there with the animal print, and I even lined the "collar" for an added pop of red.
So there you have it, true love.
All in all, a busy and surprisingly fun month - this stash busting is a good antidote to the winter blues. It's nice to have something fun to work towards when the grey days drag on, and it was such a treat to meet so many fellow sewing bloggers, too!
Til next time...
