Sassy Packing

So. Today I stopped doing this packing long enough to do this:


In this day of rotary cutting, I always am surprised at how good it feels to lay out fabric (on the floor) and put the tissue down, with a few pins, then grab an actual pair of scissors to cut through it all. It's always so... so... exciting?, no.... I can't put my finger on the word. There's just a certain joy and anticipation in cutting through the fabric and tissue, knowing you're about to CREATE something. It will be something new and different and "YOU" or rather "ME", because it's entirely my creation! Anyway, I always enjoy doing that... cutting out the carefully chosen fabric with the pattern that speaks to you.

I also started the required "embellishment" phase of the give-away apron. W
hile I was waiting to have my fabric cut, Tom actually found some ADORABLE little appliqué flowers. I ironed them on to the pockets and one of the back shoulders. Tomorrow, I'll top stitch them, then put ric-rac on some of the pockets before starting the garment sewing. It's gonna be SO STINKIN' CUTE!!! :D

I love the sound and the feel of scissors cutting through fabric. It's all about the sensory experience for me. I've had the sewing itch for a while now, but have to get the new tension assembly installed in my sewing machine. It's easy, but there is a little pin that's too long and I don't have anything that will cut through it.

I found some cute sandals and flip flops fabric in my stash that I am going to use and a cute pair of flip flop buttons for my embellishment. Now I just need to start making it. I haven't been too motivated to work on it lately.
