Late Night Card Making

I was finally back at the sewing machine today after a holiday and the subsequent washing and ironing. I worked through the day on my Couture dress, edge stitching the arms, shoulder seams and neck edge. I watched the lesson on the lining and ordered my fabric then out it aside for a while.

This evening called for an emergency quick make – a birthday card for my son tomorrow. Cards are a great way to use yo odds and ends. This card is made from the cord used to make my husband a waistcoat, the purple longing from the same waistcoat and part of an old bed sheet.

I’m not sure where the ribbon is from, but I took the opportunity to have a go at some machine embroidery to write a birthday message on the front.

I can’t believe he’s 20 already. Let’s hope he has a lovely day tomorrow.
