Industrial sewing Saturday


I am usually at work on a Saturday but due to a bit of shift swapping this week I found myself with a few free hours this morning... time to tackle a bit of heavy-duty sewing!

The task: to sew a new mattress cover for Daisy's bed. The previous incarnation was a colourful patchwork affair, but I decided to go for something a bit more utilitarian this time around for my senior doggy (14). I ordered some waterproof 600 denier polyester canvas, appropriate thread and velcro from here. So, with pieces cut and the machine armed with a size 16 jeans needle I set to work... it was a bit awkward wrangling such stiff fabric but I got the job done!





Don't worry, I put her quilt back in the bed after my little photo shoot!

I am on a roll so far this quarter, that's the second finish from my Q2 FAL list :) I wonder if this productivity will continue?!
