|A new panel for the baby gate was my first sewing project.|
So it doesn't look like much... but it's my first sewing project! Some of you may remember the sewing machine my family bought me for my birthday in November of 2008. I really wanted to learn how to sew but was going to have to teach myself. I did some practicing on scrap pieces in the first few months but the sewing machine intimidated me. And so... I kind of forgot about it. And it sat.
Above, you'll see the baby gate that seperates the boys' room and the game room from the rest of Nancy's house. The gate is intended to keep out toddlers and some of the dogs. The cats and my Italian greyhound have no problem jumping over it. Unfortunately, my other dog, Gracie, (a Lab/pitt mix) is afraid of thunder storms. One day when a particularly loud clap of thunder shook the house she went tearing straight through the white fabric mesh of the gate.
