Handwork (which includes the sewing machine) is a big part of life around here. We put it aside some while Froggy was in her cast but here are some of our latest success.
.I usually make Froggy a beautiful new something for Rosh Hashana. This year, I indulged and made something for me instead. I have a very unusual body shape and have a hard time finding store bought tops that really fit me nice. It is a joy to wear something where all the seams sit where they are supposed to. I made a muslin just like a real seamstress and tailored to be be just right.
Froggy was not totally left out. I made her a new carry all for her treasures from an old t-shirt. I want a new bag for my sewing and this was a great way to test if I like the pattern/structure. Answer is I do not. I want something more structured so I am still looking.
Froggy is working hard as well. She is doing her very first ever embroidery project. It is an archer that she started at Pennsic.
