My fingers are aching to get at my sewing machine (and the many projects in my queue), but my every attempt in this last week has been thwarted by a meeting of some sort to attend! I desperately need my sewing sanity! My evening schedule is about to clear up, though - then I'll be reacquainted with my machine and the big pile of fabric awaiting transformation.
I did manage to get a little sewing in yesterday when I helped Charlie make another Hobo Sack - this one as an end-of-year-thank-you for his preschool teacher, Teacher Tom.
Yep, this is the best photo I have of the sack. Pathetic, huh? I totally forgot to take a picture of the finished project before Charlie anxiously gifted it to his teacher. A cute shot of Charlie, though!
Charlie took this photo of the fabric he used - isn't it awesome?! I have another yard or so of it, and I'm wondering what I should do with it. Ideas?
This time we used ribbon for the drawstrings. We did this because Charlie got a little bit tired of sewing (sorry, Tom). It worked pretty well, though. Charlie also took this photo. I am actually embarrassed that my almost-4-year-old takes better pictures than I do.
What a goofball.
More projects coming soon - I've got a serious deadline for a couple of gifts and two capes for my friend Jo's auction. I better get cracking!
