I took the day off of work today and spent it teaching Sister how to sew. I don’t know much about sewing, but I know enough to teach her the basics.
Last weekend we found this great fabric at G Street on their $2.97/yard sales table. It had a mistake in the print, so she ended up getting an entire yard for $2.23 before tax.
This was a pattern-less, torn fabric sort of thing. I pressed and told her where to sew so she could just practice making straight lines. It turned out great!
(And I want my own personal presser now.)
Sister’s apron has three pockets across the front and a drawstring waist. It used about a half a yard of the fabric, and we have enough to make bread bags.
While she was sewing, I set about fixing this penguin clock. I bought origami clock kits at the paper museum Paul and I visited together. Sister and I spent an evening making clocks this summer while watching Korean pop music. I made a penguin, and she made a bear.
Unfortunately, it is still running slowly. Maybe I need a new battery?
