The facings on the neck and armholes of the dress for the wedding need interfacing. I found a roll of what I thought was fusible interfacing tucked next to the sewing machine. But when I opened it, it turned out to be "Wonder Under". If you've never crafted, you don't know about this stuff. It's great. It turns most anything that can be ironed into a heat-applied applique.Ugh. I hoped this wouldn't mean a trip to the fabric store. I was almost certain I had a bag full of interfacing. The trick was to find it.
So, into the office closet I went. I have a bag of fabric scraps from this dress and jacket. I know I have more scraps, with the intention of making a quilt (don't laugh), but I don't know where that bag is. I found some Christmas fabric, (Oh yeah! I could make what I was going to make out of that.) and two chunks of Iowa Hawkeyes fabric. (Oh yeah! I could make those two things I was going to make.) There's that pillow form but I don't remember why I have it. And there, on top of a box of fabric, is the bag holding the interfacing; many shapes, sizes and kinds.
It actually felt good to dump the bunch in the recycling can last night. De-clutter is a good thing.
Beverage: Huckleberry tea
