The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of excitement here! After making us wait a week longer than expected (which feels like half of eternity in pregnancy years), our little Kilian George finally decided to make his appearance in the world on March 10th… and all 9.6 lbs. of him have been smothered in hugs and kisses since.

Needless to say my sewing projects were put on the back burner for a couple of weeks. Towards the end of my pregnancy the carpal tunnel was so bad in my hands that I had trouble even trying to sew. Luckily, it subsided shortly after and it was glorious to be able to sit down at my sewing machine again.
I immediately had the urge to sew something spring-y, quick and useful. I came across this hotpad pattern by Purl Soho a while back and thought it would be a love match for the floral prints in this Wonderland collection. (You can buy the fabric bundle here.) I decided to add a grommet and string for the holder since I used fabric to bind with instead of twill tape. I used to find grommets so tricky, but I think I am finally getting the hang of them! Such a lovely spring addition to my kitchen…
What spring-y project are you working on?
