I made up a tutorial for this little travel sewing case for SewMamaSew, so please pop over there if you're interested in making one for yourself.
It's a compact little case for holding the basics when you're on the road: a spool of thread, thimble, mini tape measure, folding scissors, needles and pins etc.It turns out that hand sewing with rough dry winter skin on your hands is a real pain, as the thread keeps catching on the skin. So you might want to dig out some moisturiser before tackling this project...
Speaking of travel, we had a rather nice weekend away this week. I got my snow fix early this year. Lots of sledging, lots of sunshine - perfect.
Today's Translation of the Day comes courtesy of the book that my father-in-law was reading this weekend:
UK English: bottle (noun) = courage, nerve or confidence in US English
UK English: bottle it (verb) = to lose courage in US English
Did he have the bottle to go sledging down that steep slope?
No, I thought that he would, but then he bottled it.
My daughter has a lot of bottle. Well, she certainly throws herself into things heads first, anyway...
Take care all,
