What's on my work table???
The good news is I have a fully functioning work table for the messy stuff. The peg board was a brilliant idea and I'm still arranging it for optimum use. It is wonderful to empty messy drawers and get things up where I can easily grab things.
Now the drier side has the sweaty stuff! All the fabric is cut for the story bags and the sides stitched where the drawstring openings are. The board leaning against the bookcase will be put behind the sewing machine as soon as the Rooster fine tunes the leg set up.
I have 25 story bags to complete. They are approximately two feet square and are for a kids summer program so that explains the rush for the 'ya done good' presents.
I'm using the edge foot for the folded edge that the drawstring goes through. That works slick and much faster than gnashing my teeth as I wobble along the edge. It is pedal to the metal and Nina luvs it!
Then down the side and across the bottom. I did finish the beginning seams around the drawstring opening so it looks nice. I know! Hindsight makes me wonder why I couldn't have just sewn the casing last and left the ends open but I just followed the bag they gave me.
I wonder if Mod Podge would finish the ends of the cord? I do have some help. The kids and their parents are living in a camper as their house is being remodeled. Their mum fried her sciatic nerve birthing their sister and things are 'interesting' just now so I have the grand kiddies.
Jenn comes today and we'll use her day care training to make some 'art' with the grand kiddies. If we have any spare time we'll thread the cording through the casings.
Then her brother came to see what we girls were up to. He is probably liking all the shiny moving parts best! He says things like why and how,and what for! I got no time for twenty questions. sheesh!
I need to quit working the help sew hard. OYE! The wrinkles!
I am linking to the Canuck version of "what's on your worktable Wednesday." I wonder if anyone else has as much help as I do. LOL
And I call that the end of the story and their bags!
