Wind the Bobbin Up

Hello All

In the words of the nursery rhyme it is time for me to wind the bobbin up ….

Winding the Bobbin Up

and bobbin suitably wound time to start on a new project. I have in my cloth stash a beautiful few yards of batik fabric that has been crying (sobbing, even weeping) to be made up. I also have a pattern (no cross and dot scaling required) for a top that is right up my street.

Batik Fabric and Simplicity Sewing Pattern

Scissors ready? Eeeeeek.

Cutting out the pattern

Phew. Cutting done. Its time for a bit of  sewing

Basting

and of course pressing,

Pressing and Sewing

I’d hoped to get finished today but I had one little job that needed to be done and that called me away from sewing my new top. But it’s almost there. Only sleeves … and (gulp) buttonholes to go.

That little job? One of my colleagues is leaving us soon to have a baby. As she knows she is having a boy chance for me to make a pair of little crochet bootees in Baby Boy Blue.

Hope she likes them.

Until next we meet, Moke x
