I am lucky enough to have an entire day for sewing. Mondays are my day. My mom takes my daughters and I get to work work work. Most days I get a lot done. Some days I don’t. Today seems to be one of those “don’t” days.
Here’s what I’m working on:
a diaper bag for a good friend. A “must-do-today” kind of thing, considering the fact that her water broke this morning. Do you see the problem here though? Let me help you out with the dimensions.
That’s right. I turned all of the pieces sideways when sewing the inside, so it’s 2″ smaller than the outside. You’ve heard the saying “snug as a bug in a rug?” Well, that saying did not apply here.
Not great. So, I started unpicking the side, cut it off, and sewed it back up. I wasn’t having the best day. Until the mail came. And look what arrived for me today!
Lots of woven labels.
Of course, they came in a little cardboard box. I can’t leave them in there… not pretty enough for the labels, you know? Good thing I’ve got an infant in the house.
An infant who is eating semi-solid foods right now. Thank you Gerber for your awesome plastic (not glass) stackable containers! Instead of ending up in a landfill, these will be on my shelf showcasing my pretty little woven labels.
And they look great on my products! So excited to get them on some little clothing items…
