As I’ve said, more times than the family can bear, the only lifting I’ll be doing for a few days is the sewing machine’s presser foot!
So here is the result of some convalescing:
I can finally say that I am using some some of the rust I won, in Shruti's Bella Parade paired with a book print for the Princess, who could also be know as The BookWorm.
A little too late I rememered that I don’t do french seams so well
nothing a little ripper couldn't fix.
Order of constructions leaves a bit to be desired too!
See how those nice trimmed points, to make a box base, are protruding alien-like out of the middle of the bag? That was the only way I could anchor them together...a step I should have done before I sewed the bag and lining together.
Perhaps my brain is still slightly anaesthetised!
I gave it to her without handles sewn on, just so I could get the placement right ( I did not) want another session with the unpicker!
She came into a noisy household to become the fourth child under 5 and took it in her stride with a placid and gentle disposition.
Now, her HSC exams are behind her and the whole world is in front of her, and she is taking it in her stride, with a similar placid, but a heck of a lot more confident, disposition.
There are now technically 5…five…adults living in this house…recipe for disaster?...we shall wait and see…
thanks for taking a peek over the fence…
