Be warned! What you are about to see is not the norm for me. You see, my desk this week is at the sewing machine. Now you might ask, why is this not normal for me. I am always sewing on paper. Actually, that was the reason that I bought this machine. But today, gasp, I am actually sewing on fabric!!!
Yes, you heard correctly, fabric. I am working on some teething worms for my beautiful, little niece.
What are teething worms you ask? They were first made by my children's great-grandmother when they started to teethed. It is easy for them to hold, they can bite and suck on the ends, and the fabric, well, not to be gross but it soaks up the excess drool and helps to keep their clothes dry. They can easily be tossed in the washer and my kids LOVED them. My sister asked me if I could make a few for Sophia, and of course I would do anything for either one of them, so here I am tonight at the machine.
*NOTE: The teething worms are filled with cotton batting as the cotton is very absorbent.
And last week, a few of you asked what that pointy thing on my desk was. It is a tube turner. I am not quite sure the picture shows it well enough, but basically you use it to turn tubes right side out. I also have used one for threading elastic through casings.
Well, that is it for this installment of WOYWW. Hop on over to the Stamping Ground to see more desks from around the world.
Thanks for your visit!
