My sewing machine enjoyed a full work out yesterday from the patchwork flag to fixing our living room curtains and this scrap fabric bunting. I have drawers full of leftovers in all shapes and size just waiting for a project like this. It was all very easy to construct with the help of my iron and the 'good' pair of scissors I prepared my shapes before sewing them double-sided on the machine.
As with yesterday, Jono wasn't keen on standing still for a photo with the bunting and Soph stood in for him. She is showing you her favourite piece of material on the wall, which matches the little doll cushion I made for her a few years ago. Sophie was laughing so much when I took the shot that her eyes closed, unintentionally mimicking the cushion - that's what I call perfect photographic timing!
Another glimpse - Jono is so happy to have something up on his walls. They have been looking dull for too long, just waiting for me to have time to do the job. He's delighted with the transformation but wants more, more, more. The pressure is on now to come up with the goods. Help!
Did your household have a 'good' pair of scissors when you were younger?
Were you like me and couldn't understand why I wasn't allowed to cut paper
with them, especially when they did such a good job?!
