Little stitching projects
Both projects were very quick and easy. My aim was to keep familiarising myself with my sewing machine, to get better and better at straight lines and working close to edges. Yup, the basics. I suspect I'll be doing pretty basic things for some time to come yet, though I have got hold of some stitchable Swedish tracing paper and am planning to remake the 1960s top from last month with a full bust adjustment. The makeup wipes were made from two different fabrics, a smooth cotton and a brushed cotton, and top stitched to finish them off, so I did get to practice a different sort of straight stitching, and making neat internal corners. I still get a little nervous when clipping corners. I worry about clipping too much and making holes in things.
