I just wish I could whistle while I work, but unfortunately I have never been able to make much more than a sharp single syllable note (if you can even call it that) come out when I try to whistle. So, it would be the most monotone song to ever permeate this home, and I think the dog might even have to leave the room. ;0) It's okay, though because I have the radio and my imagination to keep me going. I have been working on more bags lately and have added several to my shop, with more on the way.
Right now I am working on an embellishing job for several little canvas backpacks that I bought years ago. I had other plans for them at that time, but they never materialized. I am glad for that, though, because I think this project is much cooler than I what I had originally set out to create. I hope other people feel the same way and enjoy them too! I am having wonderful fun with fusible webbing and vintage fabric scraps. I wish I had jumped on the fusible webbing bandwagon a long time ago because I think it might be one of the most wonderful inventions of all time. Unfortunately, I was not a card carrying member until recently because I remember the stuff my mom tried using when I was little and it never seemed to work. I cannot tell you how many hems she tried to "cheat" on by fixing them with something called "wonder under", I believe, and as soon as you washed the garment the hem would come right back out. I guess this product has come a long way. Uh-oh, I am feeling the beginning of an iron-on patch craze around here. Never mind my bad whistling, if the dog does decide to stick around she might just get a new fusible webbing accessory. Watch out Rox., the iron is hot!
Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
