I did a little sewing this past week. IN my sewing room even! I am still so impressed with that. Awhile back now I made room for a table and then found a nice old sturdy although ugly table to place my sewing machine on. I should really try to get some pictures of that room but it’s tiny and it won’t be easy … plus, I will have to clean. I wouldn’t hold your breath.
On Sunday we had a grad party that we attended for my cousin and though it would have been simple enough to toss some cash in an envelope I decided it would be fun to make something. It’s what I do … that whole make gifts thing, and even though I didn’t have any idea what to make I made it my mission to come up with something. I was looking around on-line and saw that someone had made a laundry bag for a graduation gift. That was a great idea … so I stole it.
Even though I stole the idea I did create my own pattern and I did think of the idea to add some fun embroidery all on my own.
I found a font on the computer that would work, traced it with some transfer pencils onto tracing paper, then ironed the design on the fabric. Worked super slick. I even remembered that I would have to trace the letters backwards so they would be the right direction once ironed. I am not normally that quick so I think that is pretty cool that it came to mind before I had to fix it.
I drew the little clothes on the line free hand. Cute right? After a little stitching (on both sides) I was ready to start up the sewing maching.
Turned out pretty well if I do say so myself.
So there you go, another exciting tale from the sewing room.
