Fabric ABC's

When I heard the news of the latest Pinterest Challenge at Young House Love, Bower Power, Hi Sugarplum, and Great Indoors, I knew exactly what I'd be making.  My niece is learning her letters and I thought she would love this.



I had pinned these fabric magnet letters made by ChezbeeperbebeVia Pinterest and I LOVED them. 

I headed over to my mom's house and got to sewing.  Here's my version.  (The I is missing, I'm hoping it's sitting on my mom's sewing machine).  I used this tutorial, but I made the letters bigger than the template.  I typed all the letters in Arial Block font using 300 size font and printed them on card stock.  I raided my mom's, sisters, sister-in-laws, and grandmothers fabrics.  The R is my favorite (it was a piece of a sleeve of my grandmothers shirt).

I also made a drawstring bag to hold the letters. 


My sewing has improved quite a bit. I can actually do a straight line and the curves for all the letters.  I was pretty proud of myself.  Have you tried sewing?  My next project...a quilt.  I already bought the fabric. Let's see how long that takes me.
