I discovered a hole in one of my favorite summer tunics the other day. It was a big hole and in the perfect spot for a pocket. So I decided to make a pocket from a vintage hankie.
Then this happened.
Yes, the sewing machine needle went right under my nail bed. A minor setback and I was happy that I didn't get blood on my project. Whew.
After sewing on the applique, I visited my button box to find just the right button. Guess which one I chose?
None of these seemed right. But way down at the bottom I found a flower shaped mother of pearl that was just the right size.
Done! It took about 20 minutes, not including the trip to the bathroom for a bandaid. And now it's fully wearable again and that makes me happy.
