A Little Something Sew Different

I’ve been extremely busy lately so it felt great to create something, especially with fabric for a change. long before I started card making I sewed but after my severe RA diagnosis and surgeries I gave it up. but I missed it. so, I traded my decades old manual sewing machine for a computerized one – what a difference; I can sew again.

I started out with making face masks and have moved on to small projects just as a refresher and to learn to use my new machine. these ‘itty bitty boxy bags’ were fun to make and I’ll definitely be making more; I followed this video tutorial.

of course I had to make a sunscreen lip balm holder and I challenged myself to sew with cork; I followed these instructions.

  1. How nice to go back to an old favourite craft Linda, some of these new machine look amazing and what pretty little bags you have made.

    I used to cross stitch and early in lockdown when I couldn’t get my head round crafting/cardmaking I ordered some Poppy cross stitch only to realise my eyes and fingers are not up to it anymore, maybe if I can add a few stitches a day it might get finished eventually.

  2. OMG : ) These little bags are a total WoW ! They look so well made ( just like your cards ). And sewing the cork 😳 that most of been a challenge ! Linda, I am soooo happy for you that you are rediscovering the pleasure of sewing . . .
