At the moment, I am fixing some of the many items I have laying about in my sewing boxes. Some of these items need a pocket or button sewn back on, there are a couple of bras that need new straps or new plastic adjustments and there are also a few wash bags that needs the last seems before they can be put up on etsy.
These past months, I haven’t looked at my sewing boxes, let alone decided to finish all of these projects, but yesterday – it all changed. I feel if I only finish the smaller projects first – I can start with the bigger ones (like my wedding dress), and the more lists I tick off, the happier I will be. Yesterday, I started by finally sewing on a support strip on one of my vintage looking cardigans. I will complete the hand stitches tonight and then finally, I can go to R’s sister A and borrow her sewing machine which makes wonderful button holes. All by itself.
Of course, I have a machine as well, but mine is old which means I have to do most of the job myself. I’m more than capable. But combining a visit to A with making my cardigan nice again is something I’d be more than happy to do!
