Before I started knitting I sewed. Garments, quilts, toys, etc. Sitting in front of my sewing machine was fun. Then I had kids and sewing for any length of time just wasn't happening. It's been awhile since I last made anything out of fabric. A friend showed me a tutorial to make dpn cozies and I thought -- hey I've got stuff for those. I dug around the stash and found fabric, snaps, dusted off my cutting mat and sewing machine. It took a bit to find everything, like my rotary cutter and the right ruler. Then I had to get reacquainted with it all. How did my sewing machine work again? Will it work? It did. And while I had a full range of snaps and a setting tool, I never used it.
The day was half gone and I had nothing to show for it so I flipped the other around and ended up making a cable cozy for my interchangeable needles instead. So all wasn't lost completely and I got to try out the snap setter. I'll try the cozies again another time, with the right measurements.
Maybe I should stick to knitting. That's my Fiber Arts Friday. How was yours?
