Last Minute Vacation Sewing!
It is always important to have some handmade goodies with you while you roam the beach (add that to my growing list of personal mottos). So, since I am all packed and ready to go, I took the day to make some “must-have” beach items.
Oh, and Isaac would only “pose” for me while jumping on the bed:
Then I had to embellish a shirt to match Isaac’s seashell collecting bag:
And finally, since we are going to be missing Daddy all week, I had to make myself a tote bag/purse with his picture on it. This was my favorite project. I also started a matching wallet but it is not yet completed.
I am crazy for this material. It is canvas-like upholstery fabric. And it is so luxurious in person. I may re-do my whole world in this stuff!
Well, now that I have been in a frenzied state of sewing for the day, I really don’t want to leave my sewing machine behind because I have all sorts of new & exciting sewing ideas banging around in my head. But I will be bringing lots of embroidery for a new quilting project. Oh yeah, and my Harry Potter book!!!
