Hand-sewn quilts? Legendary Due August 27 (boy); 1 child; Beverly Hills, California 57425 posts

I'm attempting to make one out of my daughters old baby clothes. I'm trying to quit smoking and I need to keep my hands busy. I typically give up on projects like this within 10-15 minutes (after all the supplies are bought of course)



My bread maker, bow kit, knitting needles, box of yarn, crochet kit, sewing machine and embroider should be enough proof that I don't ever finish projects. Lol




Any tips from people who have done this?

No tips, but just wanted to say I think that is such a neat idea. :)

i have no idea when it comes to hand sewing (or any type of sewing) but wanted to say good luck on giving up smoking. December 16th will be two years since I quit. One of if not the best decision Ive ever made. I am so proud of myself! I REALLY hope the best for you and hope you can quit. :)

Making it! Lol sorry!!



When I get stumped or it gets too hard I quit. I need tips so I know how to continue, or issues I may run into and how to solve them.

Thanks! I quit when I was pregnant because it made me sick (I got really lucky that my body made that decision for me) but I obviously don't wanna chance that my body won't hate it this time and I have to quit during the pregnancy through will power, I'd much rather quit now before I get pregnant.
