This past weekend I managed to find an hour or so to sew, so I fixed a pillow, hemmed some pants, repaired Chase’s kennel liner (again), and made my first bookmark for my friend Pearl’s birthday. She requested purple and blue, and I found this fabric in my stash that I love. I wasn’t brave enough to try any free-motion stitching, and I thought a top-stitch was nice and simple. I wish I had purple ribbon though; this orange was the only color I had in the right family. It was fun, though, and I think I’ll definitely make more. Happy Birthday, Pearl!
