Blankets this week, lots of laundering, pressing, cutting and binding.
Lots of lovely Liberty which means the insect pins have to come out.
Must have got distracted with this one!
I like sewing and knitting because when you mess up big style
you can just chop it off/rip it back and start again.
If only life was so easy.

I've been looking for a Harris tweed jacket for myself for ages and I found one the other day but it was a bit worse for wear, I think this is what you might call moth damage!
I bought it anyway
and gave it a good soak for about 8 hours
and changed the water every time I walked through the kitchen.
Proper wool is a miracle fibre, it came up like new - apart from the moth holes.
Watch this space for it's next adventure.

Henry Ford had something,
the production line works,
I made 50 bags in a couple of days,
not all shown here,
but all using vintage textiles
and up cycled fabrics.
Now to play with my new tools
and crack on with the zipped pouches.
Plenty of seventies florals going on
and a little bit of Christmas prep.
My favourites from a vintage French tablecloth.

A tidy studio, puppy asleep under the table, sewing machine and overlocker at the ready...
must be time for some work.
Spent a full day ironing, cutting and matching up fabrics for bags and zip pouches.
Next day sewing and buttonholes aaargh!
After about eighty buttonholes I think I may have sussed it,
nothing so satisfying as cutting them open with a stitch picker.
Polar Bears and Reindeer, getting ahead of myself.
