When this sewing machine is still in your sewing machine cabinet, you have to sew with a needle and thread. How old do you think this is? I have another sewing machine in the basement just haven't switched them out..(heck, wonder how old it is) You guessed it, haven't done much sewing in a long time. I ripped some old sheets up.
Got some tea bags to boil.
Soaked the strips of sheets in the tea.
Rinsed and dried the strips, they really are darker than they appear in the photo. This will become a Mummy for Halloween.
Found another sheet, made a pattern, cut out this dress, sewed the shoulders, under the arms and down the dress on the sides to the waist. Yes with a needle and thread.
Scratched around some more and found this gold ric rac, found some fabric glue and glued some around the neck and the sleeves. This is the beginning of the Angel Costume. Still have the wings, halo and belt to make.
