And then it started feeding the fabric backwards! BACKWARDS!!!
So, sadly, in the middle of kids clothes week, my machine has become a patient at our nearest sewing machine hospital. Hopefully she will make a swift and complete recovery.
Now, what to do for kids clothes week without a sewing machine...
Maybe I'll cut and pin some pieces that I've been wanting to get to and let them pile up awaiting my machine's return home.
In the meantime, I can share some photos of a few projects that are already complete but I haven't posted about yet...
Here's the first:
Donkeys in Boots Spring Coats
I posted a quick photo here when I completed Avery's coat during Celebrate the Boy. But I've since made one for Zander too.
I used the 2-in-1 jacket pattern from Sewing for Boys. The fabric is Jack and Jenny by Laurie Wisbrun with a dark wash denim on the reverse.
And we used delicious rocks as props.
