I had to break the time down into small 'bites' but in the end had more than an hour to sew - because I am a night owl!
So here's what I got up to...
|Oops - needs ironing again, it was shoved in a bag so I could unpick poolside!!|
This is a Big Basic Tee from Make It Perfect, it's view A - the slim fit top, done with contrasting sleeves and neck binding.
You can see that I have unpicked the hem - I wasn't happy with it.
I realised as I went to sew the sleeve hems and body hem that I had broken my last twin stretch needle, so chose a stretch zig zag stitch on my machine instead to complete them.
But the stretch stitch warped the shape of the lower hem - making it a little wobbly and it was going to annoy me, so I unpicked it and will re-sew it tonight.
The mushroom is an iron-on velour from Crafty Mama's.
These are dead-easy to put on, give a professional look to a simple garment and Lisa is expanding the range all the time so there are always great things to choose from - for girls or boys.
They are as varied as a retro camera, geckos, truck tyre tracks, deer, stars, jungle animals, crowns, hearts, birds and cute little hedgehogs.
Today has been tough for fitting in sewing.
I've managed the unpicking (no fun!!) - and that might be it for today.
Tomorrow is a public holiday - so despite family plans I hope to get at least an hour in.
Wish me luck!
