See - I do other stuff than knit . . . .
There is a debate if I should put his initials on the wine label in caligraphy or fancy script - thankfully I still have a couple months to decide!
In an unprecidented burst of craftiness I also got my old sewing machine up and running to make this. . .
I was inspired and blatently stole the directions from Grumperina (scroll down to "Sore Subject"). It works beautifully but I definately need to work on sewing a straight line!
It was a lot of fun to make this but I broke a few (three) needles trying to sew the small elastic loops to close the thing. I kept hitting the pin even though I'd pinned it correctly. Oh well - last time I buy sewing machine needles from the dollar store!
