Having made 20 masks my supply of hat elastic was depleted and after having tried in several shops around my area to buy more without any success I mentioned my sad plight to June of June's Jottings and she was able to get me some. Mind you she also had to try 8 shops before hitting the jackpot. It arrived via the post today. I will guard it very carefully.
After doing some gardening and other domestic duties this morning I headed to the sewing room after lunch to make an early start on FNSI in order to make some pencil cases/bags. The co-ordinator of Network heaven asked if I could help make some smallish drawstring pouches - 10cm x 22cm - to hold pencils for 4-5 year olds. She would like 60 done and with two of us making them it means 30 each. I was given this lot of drill fabric and cord to use.
After an hour in the sewing room they are cut out and some have been through the overlocker.
I did do a pro-type during the week and found while it was very quick to make doing the casing for the drawstring was a bit fiddly as it was too small to fit around free-arm of the machine so I had to be careful when feeding it through to keep the back part away from where I was stitching as it could easily be caught up.
Time to head on over to Wendy's blog to see who else was sewing/crafting last night and what they got up to.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
