I haven’t had time to sew these past few months, so my fabrics and half-projects declared sovereignty over the sewing room. Today, I rolled up my sleeves and got to work. It was a lovely day- breezy, bright and cool.
As I cleared and sorted the debris, I re-discovered an Amy Butler Gum Drop Ottoman I cut last year from a hemp-nettle-organic cotton upholstery weight. I immediately stopped organizing to *finally* sew this.
I remember reading how well fabric scraps work for ottoman stuffing on pattern review. I saved fabric scraps for an ottoman for longer than I’ve had the hemp/nettle. It’s several years of muslins, tiny useless scraps, bits everything that passed through my hands in that time. I also saved the sort of garments that won’t work well for rags.
When I conquer the mess, I’m permitted to try some summer tailoring. The drafting will be lovely mind-puzzle, as well as the sewing. I might need a few smaller projects to get my hand back in.
I took a few photos for a “hand-sewing gallery”.
A little more work to organize my room and I can make the suit!
