Friday Night Sew-In Results




We were able to spend a few hours downstairs in the sewing room. I was glad I had committed to the sew-in because on my own I think I would have probably spent my evening watching Dr. Who.

Instead, Coleen and I had fun picking out an outfit for Coleen to sew for her brand new cousin Adelaide from Ottobre. Here Coleen is starting to trace out the patterns.



And I flat-felled the side seams and hemmed the two shirts I am making for William. Now I just need to hem the sleeves, add buttons and buttonholes and oh, yeah attach the collar - I've been avoiding that. I need to be wide awake for that step!

You might think I'm ahead of the game since I'm making two short sleeve shirts in February, but I have a confession to make- they've been at this stage since last August! Ah, yes...procrastination.

William's shirts are looking very professional! My husband loves the Hawaiian shirts that I make for him, but isn't keen on me making him work clothes... The Friday Sew-In idea is a cool one. Will you do any more in the future? How did you connect with the others?

I have a quilt I've been ignoring since May.

At least you made some progress!

How great that you and Coleen spent the evening together, sewing! That makes it even more special.

I agree! attaching the collar is not something to do at the end of a long day ;)

Glad you enjoyed FNSI!
