Thread the Needle Day

Today I think I will thread the needle on my sewing machine. I haven’t been motivated lately but I need to do some mending and work on some projects. Today I will be fixing a dog bed, repairing some grocery bags and maybe even work on the denim seat for a wicker chair. The last time I worked on mending I got almost everything completed. Hopefully I will be just as successful today.

That being said I also need to work on my son’s birthday present. I will be doing a snack pack similar to the one I did for Fathers Day. I will be providing 4 seasonings with popcorn & potato chips. I think he will really like the gift as he does enjoy to cook and these seasonings can be made into a dip or a dressing for salad. I’ll try to share more later in the week.

Sewing & Repairing

On National Sewing Machine Day, I took some time to do some repairs and other sewing projects.  They included restitching the sleeve on a tee shirt.

I had patched these jeans- very comfy – with iron on patches.  However, after being washed many times the patches starting coming off.  I stitched all the edges of the patches so they would stay on and I would still have this one leg of cool looking patched blue jeans.

 

 

 

Next, I worked on replacing the bottom of one of the cat beds with denim.

 

 

 

 

 

It was a little tricky but turned out great and Dude got his bed back.

 

 

The last thing I was able to complete was adding more cushion with a flat pool noodle to Mac’s seat cushion.  This only involved cutting it to size and inserting in the pillow.  Unfortunately the zipper broke yesterday and I will need to replace it.

It was great to get some small projects completed.  Still have to make a new canvas seat for a wicker chair.  I’ll share when I get some more projects complete.  Have a great Monday!
