sewing with company
Yesterday I threw caution to the wind and set aside the sewing of custom frocks in favour of spending the day sewing with a friend. We’d been trying to organise such a day for weeks and when the stars finally aligned for us we grabbed the opportunity excitedly. With our machines set up and a tea pot at the ready we got down to the business of sewing for our little ones.
Kaizer was in dire need of some long winter pants so after a quick shop of my fabric stash I chose a lovely soft flannelette and the remains of a retro cotton sheet. With the snip of my scissors and the whir of my machine, I whipped up two rather unique pair of vintage floral pants in no time. I wasn’t too sure that I would get away with these fabrics but on trying them on Kaizer beamed at me and proceeded to tell me how ‘cool’ they were. Win/win! and who am I to argue with the logic of a three year old?
Four pair of pants between us made for a most productive sewing session and reminded me yet again how wonderful a leisurely day of chatter, tea and sewing can be.
Doing some personal sewing was a much needed distraction but it’s back to the grind stone for me today. Three customs to finish then I’m kicking up my heels and holidaying with the kids.
Been creating anything yourself lately?
