Last night I did just a bit of silly sewing. I wanted to make a pouch for my extension cord for my featherweight, so it wouldn't scratch up the featherweight anymore than it is. Not really needed, but just thought it would be fun. I had scraps of pre-quilted fabric from some tote bag samples I made for the shop, so I used that. Above is what it looks like closed.
And here it is with it unbuttoned. No pattern and I did not spend a lot of time making seams straight or any special "look". Just silly sewing!
But I did have a fun pulling my middle daughters leg with it! She is the "blonde one" and sometimes you can really get her going. So when I was turning it inside out, my hand and arm were all the way in it, with it going up past my elbow (the picture is actually even funnier because I later tried to take this myself with only one hand pulled far away from my left arm!). So she asks "What is that?" and of course she gives me "that look". I said - it is an over mitt. She says "it is not", but she only looks slightly skeptical. I said "yes it is, see it goes all the way up the inside of your arm so you don't burn yourself here". She say "no its not, is it?". She is almost believing me now, but thinking I"m TOTALLY STUPID! I said "yes, it is an oven mitt, I always burn myself on that inside part of my lower arm taking things out". By this time she has that look of "what a dork you are, and how stupid you are to make that". But more "I can't believe you burn yourself taking something out of the oven"! I tried to keep a straight face but by that time I just lost it. Oh well, so much for pulling her leg!
