Salam alaikum sisters!
Today I wanted to show you some projects I have been working on.
Here is a sneak peek of a quilt I am working on for the new addition to the family. I haven't started sewing it all together as I am gathering up more scraps of material to include in it. I am super excited to get this done, inshallah!
The main focus of it is already sewed together. It is a block that is called "the exploding pineapple". Very easy to make.
Before the new baby comes I really want to get a new rug in the living room. Right now we are financially very tight, so I am making a rag rug. I think it will really go with what I have in my living room already as it is decorated kind of "country shabby chic".
A friend of mine was helping me move my husband and I's bedroom around to make room for the new baby, and while doing so, she ripped our comforter. It was just a loosely woven cotton comforter, here in Florida there is no need for heavy blankets. It was beyond repair because it was so loosely woven, so I cut it up to make a rug out of it! I am just crocheting around the strips of material and alternating the color of yarn.
I am also working on knitting a sweater, leggings, and sewing dresses for the baby, but I will show all of those when I finish them, inshallah.
