When I organized the closet on Sunday I had to repair two dog beds that the boy had torn into. I hauled my trusty sewing machine out for the first time in nine months and got to work. Though the fixes were small and took less than ten minutes, I really, really enjoyed it. I missed hearing that little buzz of the machine, winding the bobbin and trying to maintain a straight line.
I swore I wasn’t going to pile any more onto my plate for the holiday season this year but I’m rethinking that and wanting to sew, sew, sew. Here are some projects worth pondering.
- A cozy for my to-go coffee cup: I was forced to purchase from Starbucks and would love to cover up the logo!
- Really pretty pillowcases to dress up the bed
- A really cute pincushion
- A little set of teatime towels from the Goddess herself
I have a large box of unused fabric from my Christmas gifts last year and plan to tackle a project or two this month. Sewing is a serious stress reliever and I enjoy the high I get from completing a project when all is said and done.
Are any of you guys getting ready for the holiday season this early? Making handmade gifts? Do share some of the easier ones!
