I used to really love sewing but somehow I just haven’t had time recently and my trusty sewing machine languished dustily in the garage. I finally got it serviced, only for someone to snap the bobbin holder off and then I… tried to fix it. With superglue. Which dripped down into the workings.
Luckily I remembered a cheque my Nana had sent me for Christmas which I had tucked away and not banked, so I decided to treat myself to a sewing machine. Fran and Amelie were both keen to do some sewing too and it seemed a nice opportunity to actually do some making of things together. Although in the end a busy holiday and a broken foot slightly squashed our actual time for that, quite a bit of making did happen and I’ve got good plans for the next few months too.
My new baby.
Then she moved on to a drawstring bag (now being used for gym stuff so at least useful!) and did pretty well with that too. I need to find a good pattern for a lined bag. I’m never really happy.
This was using up some old pieces of fat quarter she butchered years ago – scraps have been used up. Hurrah!
Fab little purse we made a pattern up for ourselves. I’m going to blog this as I was very pleased with it 🙂
She’s now working on a dress but we’ve stalled as we need interfacing and life has been a rush. I have a whole roll of it somewhere or other. Sigh.
I’ve got a Pinterest board filled with sewing projects. Feel free to let me know of anything you think I might enjoy making.
