A Sewing Date


Tomorrow, I am going over to my son and daughter-in-law’s house to assist her with a sewing project. I definitely look forward to it!

Jessica is a very talented young woman. She is a photographer by trade but has many other artistic abilities. She has a brand new sewing machine still in the box, and she doesn’t really know how to begin.

I gave her a sewing box for Christmas with some basics: seam ripper, fabric scissors, pins, and maybe some thread. She has collected fabric, buttons, and other sewing items on her own. I gathered some supplies to take: 3 project books with patterns, large plastic ruler, ruled pattern paper, seam ripper (she can’t find hers), pinking shears, tracing wheel and paper, interfacing, and orange Vol fabric. Hopefully, we can come up with something she wants to make for the cheerleaders that she coaches.

I made some banners like these and hung up at my now closed fabric shop. I then sold several sets of them and made some for some people as gifts. Jessica may want to go in a diferent direction, but that is fine. I am taking a whole bolt of this fabric with me. She mentioned making some curtains, so we will see what we get into.
