After the fun of sewing and patchworking for gifts – fun because it’s always a great excuse to add to the fabric stash – I’ve been doing some sensible sewing. Using up some of the flat bed sheets I think I mentioned.
Also making my very first buttonholes – yay! Although, with a machine like Juki, I can take none of the credit. Juki has an intelligent buttonhole foot that you plug in and Juki knows exactly what size the button is.
Anyway this opens up endless possibilities for future sewing projects, I have to say! In the meantime, it enabled me to sew a quilt cover (using 2 sheets) and add buttons to the flap. I had enough fabric left over from each sheet to make 2 x 2 pillow cases.
Not necessarily the colour scheme I had planned for the bedroom, but it’s a “new” quilt cover and 4 pillow cases. I still have some flat double-sized sheets yet to use. So will set to work cutting and sewing up even more quilt covers this coming week.
