“Can’t you make this stuff?” my spouse asked. He was in a hurry to get over to the candy aisle to see what drug store goodies he could pick up for a post-dinner treat.
We agonized over the rest of the cheesy selection and finally found a card that was appropriate (in all the categories we needed to fulfill) and went home. After a quick stop over to the candy aisle, of course.
We considered getting his mum theatre tickets, but then craftiness won in the end. I decided to sew her a beach tote. Here is the finished product which we shipped out yesterday:
It’s simpler than the design I had intended, but I think she’ll appreciate a homemade gift. I have plans to make one for myself with other fun fabrics I found at the store when I was buying the materials for this project. I think my mum-in-law will enjoy the seashell motif and the large capacity with a zip top.
My dress is still in the works. Another few hours of work and it should be good to go. The finished version will be posted here for posterity. Even though, many of my dear readers have already seen a sneak preview of the rough draft.
I HEART my sewing machine!
