The thoughts, sewing projects, and fabric oglings of a dedicated sewist.

A Snippy Day

I spend the last couple days at the cutting table (aka, the large self-healing mat that lays on my sewing room floor).  This is probably why my jeans get so worn at the knees.  I hate cutting, so I sometimes do a marathon session so that I won't have to do it for a while.  Yesterday I spent about six hours cutting out fabric for scarves and today I cut out a client's skirt during naptime.  So glad I get to sew tonight and all day tomorrow!

The scarf project took a long time because I had to eke out the scarf pieces from jersey scraps and old t-shirts, and then decide what went with what.  Here's what I had at the end of the day:

Twenty scarves!

These are going to become teacher gifts and, if I'm lucky, I'll have some leftover for my Etsy shop.

Whew.  So glad that's over with  . . .

  1. and I have accidentally built myself a table that's the perfect height for cutting. You might have to come over to my place for cutting sessions. But we won't call them that ... because that sounds awful. We'll call them cocktail evenings. :)

    1. Hmm, I wonder if wielding a rotary cutter while drinking cocktails is a great idea . . .

    2. You don't *have* to be drinking cocktails ... you cut, I'll drink. :)

  2. Oooof! Makes my knees hurt just reading about it! Happy sewing day!
