I had to sew yesterday after I got the loft tidied up. (I always think of Uma Thurman in The Producers when I say that. I should spell it Tidy OOP ).
I wanted to make a gift for our hostess and thought that a tote bag would just be too boring. So I found an apron and used it as a pattern. I looked up how to make a bias tube on Yahoo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5D7pIMYkVBw) and had the apron done at 3:45. Plenty of time for a shower and a change of clothes and a trip down street to the party by 4:00. We were fashionably late at 4:09.
I learned all sorts of stuff, basic sewing skills that I already know but forgot. It was a fun little project and plan to make more.
