Tied Up and Twisted
Posted 27 July, 10on:
Well, this was not the “fast and fun” project I had in mind for today, but it was definitely fast and fun. It also was not sewn by me. Lately, other people are using my sewing machines more than I am. That needs to change very soon!
C used a scrap of fabric from my friend’s pajama pants to make another bow tie. The fabric has Pez dispensers all over it. It does not show up that well on a bow tie, but the tie is still fun. And it was very fast to sew. C wants to make more fun bow ties with different themes. This project took about 15 minutes to cut out, sew, and press. That’s a whole lot of style for just a few minutes of work.
There was a little “me time” squeezed into today. I cut out a skirt in an extremely fun fabric. It is almost done, but I my knee was “done” before the skirt was. Physical therapy was intense on Monday. I am very sore today… and I get to go back tomorrow. woo hoo. (That’s me pretending to be enthusiastic.) Getting up and down from the sewing chair was more workout than I could handle today. The skirt will be uber cute, perfect for lunch with a girlfriend.
