it is one craft i don't do but need to learn, with reading rhonda's forum & blog i have started pondering the idea of sewing, even buying fabrics (sometimes boxes of odds & ends) because i think i might do it one day. hah! who am i kidding? me sew?
i don't sew that's just it, i don't, it's hard enough when i need to 'sew' up my knitted jumpers, why on earth would i put myself through the pain of trying to work out how to sew other things like garments? mmm? it's torture, it really is, my mind just doesn't comprehend it.
the weird thing is i have a 'want to do it' feeling for sewing lately? go figure ...
(i do love the look of patchwork though)
about 2 years ago my daughter & i got in & started aprons, i pinned & cut she sewed, that was easy, she loves sewing too, so that was also easy, (she used an old machine) we never got them finished then, but DD finished hers last year & mine is still folded up in a bag somewhere waiting for the finishing touches, which i might attempt after my little sewing exercise i'm trying to do now.
you see i brought home from our markets a little half apron that we use as a 'money apron' has 'two pockets' (sewn up the middle of one large one) it's past it's use by date, someone had even stapled the bottom of it together!
|the bottom had been stapled together to stop money from falling out|
|started the hem|
|having a go at embroidery|
i'm almost there, with the apron that is, have sewn on some borders & is now pinned & ready.
i had a dream of a memory a few weeks back to when i had made a small patchwork cushion, (under the supervision of my best friend) this has helped immensely as i suddenly feel a little more confident in the sewing now.
i still haven't finished this little money apron, did get those yellow borders finished but will post the finished apron as soon as i can get it done.
hope you are all having a great weekend
thanx for visiting
