Sewing 2 of 2, Pockets
A favorite car
Reason I want to sew. I have started wearing cargo pants. The reason for that is my wallet is getting like a ladies purse, it has too much inside and causes a problem in my back pocket. With cargo pants I can keep the wallet in the side leg pockets, problem solved.
Now I want to install a pocket on the leg of my jeans. LOL I am not sure I can do it and make it look good, but if I can get this last machine to working, Imma try.
One of the machines is a Huskavarna, the other is a Singer. I only had bobbins for the Husky, so I tried one in the Singer, and that started my problems. There was a ‘birds nest’ on the underside of the fabric I was practicing on.
I enjoy sewing, I am not good at it, but it is fun if you do not have to worry about perfection. And I certainly do not.LOL
Lisa's mama is a professional seamstress and has a business in the next town over. (Lisa comments here), I have thought about having it done professionally. I might still have to do that.
I do not knit. That looks so danged confusing and hard to me. I admire folks like MaryAnn and Lisa who can sit and make Afgans, hats and booties.
I think it would be awesome to have an old singer Treadle machine in our home, the grands would love stories that come from those things. (I cannot imagine someone creating a wedding dress!)
Oh yeah, I just got a notice, my proofs for Ace ‘n Me will be here tomorrow. I am anxious to see them.
I will read it to Stormy, maybe she will want to live with us. Hahahaha.
