The Sewing Curse

Today I had the task of making 5 makeup bags for gifts for family members on our upcoming trip.  They are pretty easy so I thought it would only take 1 day to make them. But my guardian angel was asleep or on a trip or something because I had a big sewing curse on me today. To start with I took a chuck off my fingertip with my rotary blade today. So off to the drug store I went to get supplies (don’t ask me how a chef is caught at home with no finger rubbers?). Dealing with that took an hour out of my sewing time. Then the hot iron fell and missed my foot by an inch or so followed by poking my fingers too many times to count with pins. So what’s a girl to do? I went to sleep and had a nice little nap, taking 2 more hours out of my sewing time. Luckily for me when I woke up the curse was gone and I was able to finish 2 of the 5 bags I need to make this week. The fabric I used for these is from Me and My Sisters fabric lines. I hope my neices like them.

  1. Very cute! So sorry you had to lose a piece of your finger to them. Glad to know a nap lifted the curse. I am going to try that next time! Good luck with the remainder of your project.


What do you think? I'd love to hear from you :)
