Oh goody! Since I’ve been sewing for someone else since I left on holiday I have things to show…. and first of all I get to show you my completed Mouthy Stitches bag. It went off in the mail today.
And my partner commented on my Flickr photo that she likes it – YAY! I got her preference right…
I need to tell you the trial I have gone through the last few days getting this bag done. I finished up the hand stitching and figured piecing it together would be easy. My daughter said her fiancé’s nan had a sewing machine and would be happy to let me use it. Well it turned out that she hasn’t used it for quite a few years and the tension was terrible and I couldn’t fix it. I snuck out pretending that it had worked just fine because I knew she would be apologetic otherwise. Fortunately my daughter has been hinting for a while that she wants a machine so I went and bought her one – a Brother from Walmart, but it works just great!
Here are the September hexies for Christine in Australia. I finally got them finished and mailed them today.
