Sewing ATC


I almost forgot to post the ATC for February's ATC Swap on the Cricut message board.  The theme this month was "Sewing" I know it doesn't look too complicated, but I had to remember how to use my sewing machine.  It has been a few years since I did a real sewing project.  The material was leftover pieces I used to sew my Cricut dust cover with trim that I have had laying around for years.  The buttons came from my Mom's collection.  You know the collection.  Growing up, before we got rid of any clothing, we took the buttons off if they were interesting or might be able to be used for a fill-in for a lost button.  When Mom gave me her machine & cabinet the button boxes came with them.  I have two old checkbook boxes full of buttons and was glad that I was able to use 14.  Now I'm down to 500....

WAIT--Mom gave you the buttons?? I am so glad she did. You did a very good sewing job considering how long it's been.
