Sometimes I swear I’m the slowest seamstress in the world. It takes me all evening to finish one bag or apron. Each item I make is a detailed, lengthy process…but does it have to be? Or is it just me?
I’ve been trying to figure out how to streamline and speed up my sewing process, and the only thing I can think of is to cut three, four or even five bags at once, and then sew them all, rather than cut one, sew one, cut one, sew one.
I’m starting to feel like I’ll never be able to get enough stuff made for Atomic. But I’m trying.
Here’s a tote I completed the other day.
I have four and a half more bags cut and ready to be sewn, and I’ve set aside this Saturday as a sewing day. All day. So don’t call me!
And in wedding news, we set the date for March 28, and we booked an eastern Caribbean cruise for our honeymoon! Neither of us has ever been on a cruise, and it sounds just wonderful. Our wedding is going to be very small and very simple. It’s more important to us to celebrate our special day with our closest friends and family than to spend tons of money or worry about centerpieces. I love other people’s big weddings, but that’s just not us.
