lean on me

A while back someone in my building had put out a box of fabric samples.  I am never one to let a pile of possible craft supplies go to waste, so I picked the best out of the lot and brought it back to my apartment.  There they sat, like so many other craft supplies I had at one point fancied.  Yards of fabric, gathering dust. Taking up space on my dresser.  I am nothing if not a good piler.

Last week I decided to do something about it. My coworker Jessica has a sewing machine, so I brought the scraps to her place. I picked out the one fabric I liked best, a lime poufy silk, and Jessica showed me how to sew a pillow. With a machine. Magic!

Lots of fun, don’t think I’ll do it again.  I’m not much for the straight, neat lines.

    You don’t have to make a square (or rectangular) pillow.

    So I am wondering if you want a sewing machine for Channukah?
