I managed to sew an invisible zipper that I am proud of! Thanks to Eugenia's (fabulous) World of Fashion and her post How I get an invisible zipper looking neat at the top! All I have to add is invest in an actual metal invisible zipper foot and forget those cheap plastic ones.
Sewing polar fleece.
Or maybe it was being asked by my nephew to sew him another polar fleece? Not only did the request surprise me, it made my year. He even came to the fabric store to pick out the fleece.
There is nothing like getting out of the cramped poor lit sewing space in the basement into some natural light.
The summer of 2011 was a mosquito free summer and I loved it. It is a rare occurrence out here in the Canadian prairies. I really did enjoy sewing outdoors without being bothered by those little blood suckers.
Wrist pincushions rule!
And so does my wonderful and thoughtful nephew who managed to hunt down this rare gem for my birthday. Luv
How about you, what were your favourite sewing moments of 2011?
