Whilst the world has turned somewhat upside down over these past few months, I have finally finished my first piece of ‘successful’ sewing (after a failed attempt at a simple face mask/ face covering which was too small and too tight). During lockdown I have done a lot of sport but not much sewing- pretty much none.
Until now! During a rifle through some material the other day, I spotted this lovely fabric and decided to make a zip purse for a running friend who has a birthday this week. I haven’t run with her since February. We were due to go out tonight in a socially distanced fashion, but she called off. I have spoken to her a couple of times and seen her once but miss the regular chats and spurring one another on as we remind each other of teaching from God’s Word and have a laugh and catch up on one another’s lives as we run.
I have largely been avoiding the shops but went into one earlier today and bought some sports nutrition to go in the pouch. When the run tonight was called off, I had finished measuring the sachets to cut the material to size, allowing for an inch bigger for a seam allowance and room for manoeuvre. Then spent the time making it, going slowly as I worked through the steps from this tutorial I have used many times before but not at all recently!
