sewing is not frequent here

i made a pillow out of a betty boop sweatshirt. i don't know where it came from but it was for a child or anorexic with short arms. so now it is a pillow on my bed. happy happy.

if it weren't for the hand sewing, i'd do this stuff more often. i've got yards of red and black plaid fabrics i'm dying to make curtains, pillows and a duvet cover for doc out of. i really need to sit down with the sewing machine. maybe now that it is off the glass table, i'll be more willing to fuck with it and clean it properly. i have sewing machine oil, with the fancy dispenser tip, all i need is some more canned air. i'll make that beast work. then i can patch my 23 pairs of jeans.

but i've been sewing the appliques on the wrist bands, and if i can hand felt a square foot of black wool sweater into durable felt and sttatch rivet snapw with plyers, i figured i could hand sew one pillow. the stuffing was taken out of an old pillow, i ripped it open and only used the clean, non matted stuffing. the dust mites and stuff make the outer layer kind of skeevy.
