A Bit of Sewing

Tea Pot Needle Roll
So as those of you who lurk around here often know, I'm not much of a sewer. Sure I can sew in straight lines, but when it comes to wrapping my mind around a sewing process I need serious help.

Luckily I have a friend who knows what she is doing around a sewing machine. So after an evening of knitting and eating greasy food at Chili's we went back to her house and started figuring out how to construct my ideal needle roll. I know, I know, such a wild life (please note the sarcasm).

You may be wondering why we didn't begin the mentally daunting task before dinner rather... we began to wonder that too as 11pm rolled around we had to repeat every thought or measurement twice to make sure it made sense. Anyhow, through it all we accomplished cutting out all the fabric and taking extensive notes so I could sew it together the next day.

I would now say "voila" but I must admit I definately messed up a couple of our sewing plans, still I am very pleased with the result. And I just love the tea pots!
