Sewing Tutorial: Turtle Pincushion {With Pattern} :


Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Doing some clothes mending today, I think. I have 2 pairs of identical jeans from Old Navy that are 3-4 years old and about to go in the inner thigh area, so I’m reinforcing them with some iron-on patches on the inside. I’m going to try and hand-stitch around the edges to make sure they don’t peel up, but making them invisible may take some doing.

I’ve got a lot of practice at hand stitching, however: mom’s quilt is almost done. I just have a couple of the binding edges to go and it’ll be ready in time to send as a Christmas gift instead of a birthday one. :P

Today I’ll also be removing shoulder pads from a couple of used jackets I purchased at Goodwill (I already have broad shoulders, so shoulder pads make me look like a freak). If I’m lucky, I’ll have time to make a shirt for work as well! It’ll be my first time working with machine knit cloth, but I’ll try anything once.

I start my first job in 2.5 years tomorrow (well, actually, there are 2 days of orientation before I actually start at the library), so I’m pretty antsy. I hope filling my day with practical things will help ease the nervousness.
