Sew



Yesterday was another day spent sewing. I have managed to finish off a few presents and try a few items from CK Sew. I made the bag a couple of weeks ago. Now I have made it I think there are a few things I would change, I do think that if you are a first time sewer the instructions aren't that clear. I don't like hand sewing so decided to quilt the hot water bottle cover by machine, bad move, the machine didn't like doing it nor did I! I have ended up and a mixture of different sized stitches and then found it quite hard to sew the whole thing together. Think this will have to be a present for Mom, as everything is beautiful to them! Next time I think I will make the hot water bottle cover out of an old woolly jumper and see how that goes. I haven't put the loop fastener on as by this time I had lost all patience with it.

That hottie cover is fantastic, you're too much of a perfectionist! Every damn thing you do is brilliant..... I'm not jealous...much! LOL XXX

great minds think alike! I don't have the CK book but the hot water bottle cover is in another book I've got, I just took one look at the instructions and gave up so well done that you've finished it, it looks great!

I have got that book and I have made the bag. As yet I have not made anything else yet, but you have got me wondering so I am off to have a look at it again.
