... he's my brother N30 sewing machine! Isn't he pretty!
Now at the moment he is sitting atop an old telephone table I picked up off the street. Needless to say not very conducive to good posture while sewing not to mention the fact that my legs can't go under the table. So far I have been sewing a a kind of side saddle fashion. But it's all good! I'm sewing!
And here's the proof ...
Lovely that I managed to get our bin in the background but it was difficult to get a shot without Sienna moving about. I got this gorgeous butterfly fabric from good-ness some time back and have been desperate to get his little baby all sewn up! Mind you the fabric is so light I am wondering if she will get any wear out of it before the next summer rolls around!
I also bought some beautiful animal print fabric at the same time as the butterfly print and so yesterday afternoon I set out to make a pair of pants for Luca.
Can you see what I've done? I've cut out exactly the same pattern twice (for the back and the front) rather than changing it's orientation! The instructions on the pattern pieces only said to pin it to the right side of the fabric and then cut two pieces, but I guess they assume a certain amount of common sense and prior sewing experience (that doesn't include high school)! Now I have two identical legs and not enough fabric left over to start again, so I have decided to get some sort of complimentary fabric (denim? navy?), and have one leg in this print and one in the other fabric. Jamie gave me a weird look when I mentioned this but then he suggested perhaps a little pocket or something in the animal print could tie it all together.
What do you think? Any other suggestions?
Post Script: I forgot to add the link to good-ness above earlier and in doing so have found out she is having a closing down sale - 50% off everything!
