Why is it that life just doesn't happen according to plan? Sewing is happening, but not quite as quickly as I'd wished. Grey skirt and blouse are done, but the blouse needed a run through the wash, so pictures haven't happened yet.
I needed a birthday gift for a newly-minted teenager. I was out of ideas that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Then I spotted some stainless steel water bottles in the store. Everybody seems to be carrying them. Problem is - they're quite inconvenient to tote around. Light bulb went on - sewing needed to be done. I pulled some scraps out, quilted a rectangle, sewed up a seam, bound the top, boxed off the bottom, added a strap. Pretty straight forward, but as always, these things end up taking far longer than you think they will. With such hurry-up-and-get-it-done projects, I don't make notes, and I'm now thinking of making another holder, which means having to start from scratch with measurements. Oh, I do wish I'd think ahead about these things!
