Sundays Are Hobby Days

Not that long ago, we used to regularly spend our free time on Sundays engaged in hobbies.  Sadly, we had gotten out of the habit and except for church, it was pretty much a day like any other.  It's such a nice change of pace, a breather during the week, whatever you want to call it. 

It also gives me a reason to make myself go sew.  (Well, when everyone else doesn't decide to sew and hog the sewing room.  sigh.) 

This Sunday, oldest dd decided that she needed to sew.  Here she is cutting out a Mini Bow Tucks purse:

I think she was amazed at how long it took her to cut it out which meant that she ran out of time to do any sewing on it.  The blue, green and white fabric she chose is really pretty.  I hope she gets it sewn soon because I think she will love it!  It sure will look a lot better than the store bought ones that she has.

I have a couple of sets of fabric to make my own purse, maybe that will be my project for next Sunday!

I'm not sure what a Mini Bow Tuck purse is, but it sounds pretty, and I'll anxiously look forward to seeing it all made up.

I need a sewing Sunday! Every weekend this month we have had guests. How nice that your daughters sew. Mine just advises on fabric choices :)

I find myself amazed at how long it takes to cut patterns out too! I'm more of an instant gratification type :) Tell her good luck and I can't wait to see it all made up!
