I've only just heard that sewing is therapy. . and it's so true.
I really do love sewing, quilting, crafting.
Having a community is so healing.
I not only have my online community (I love you people)
I also have real life friends in my community.
My non-quilting/sewing friends always throw at me some interesting challenges.
One of which is a local friend that her boyfriend has cancer.
He's fantastic and rallying like a rock star!
She asked me to alter some undergarments.
Well learning abound!
I had to figure out how to sew buttonholes in knit fabric. . wow!
Now instead of fighting to put these on, one side will be open. And closed with a soft cloth.
It was simple enough with my fancy Pfaff performance 2058 that makes a one step buttonhole. You just get the feet, position and push go. Once I figured it all out it was seriously too easy.
I used the wash away foundation paper which totally works like a charm.
Although there is a bit of a mess afterwards.
It's all for a good cause.
Gotta love making a mess as an adult.
