No Snow Day
Imagine my surprise yesterday when the mail came and there was a fabric post card! I wondered which sewing friend sent it and was surprised that my SIL Kate from Idaho, who doesn't sew, sent it to me!
If was a nice thing while watching the weather reports of the snowmageddon that was headed our way. Although we weren't to get as much as some of the New England states, we barely got 3" the kids only had a 2 hour delay! I am totally fine with that, now I can go about my days without trying to deal with the roads and ice.
I am probably one of the few people that still carries a checkbook. Most people have debit cards, I don't have one and don't want one. I made this cover years ago and realized it was looking pretty rag tag, not to mention dirty and boring.
I pulled out some heavier weight fabrics to make a new one.
My first mistake was to use a fusible interfacing, I could barely turn it.The heavy weight fabric was good enough all by itself.
Second. I should have paid attention to where the little cups and bowls were so when I closed it you would see something cute instead of all that gray. Also look how lumpy it looks.
Enter in some new fabric and a second try at it.
That's better, this is the outside.
And closed. I like it much better and it didn't take that long to make.
I am not even rescuing the fabric!
