Most of the week was spent on getting those pencil cases/pouches finished. Putting the remainder through the overlocker
Next came the making of the casings for the drawstrings which proved to be very fiddly. I had to stop every few stitches to pull the back out and make sure it was not getting caught up as the opening was not very wide. Only 3 left to go under the machine
All 32 are now sewn, turned and threaded with cord.
In keeping with my WOOFA challenge - which is to work my way through the scrap piles - a start was made on sewing up the pink squares that were cut earlier on in the month and true to form the bobbin ran out again without me noticing. More WOOFA challenges can be seen here at Cheryll's blog.
Fortunately it was just about at the end of the row. I have in the past sewn for quite sometime without being aware that the bobbin was empty. Very annoying having to re-sew virtually a whole seam.
Spring is in the air. You only have to walk outside to smell the jasmine and wattle scents wafting around. One of the many wattle trees that are coming out in flower around the area where I go for my daily walk.
Off to the sewing room to sew up more pink squares and work on my Fall blog hop item.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
