I'm always thrilled to be sewing something, anything! I love fabric and continue to add to my already huge collection. When a dear friend asked me to help her alter one of her skirts, I thought, "Yay! A wonderful excuse to sew and especially with a friend".
As the day approached, I began thinking about what I would sew. I have a few pieces of clothing that need alteration too and kept that idea on the back burner.
Though, I really wanted to make something beautiful using the fabric I already have.
The day before, when my son and I were at a library, I checked out the sewing selection of books and one caught my eye. I paged through it and noticed a project that reminded me of my friend.
On the day, I still didn't know what I wanted to sew, so I thought to make my friend a reversible obi to warm up a bit and asked her to choose the three fabrics that she liked. I also helped her daughter with a plush project.
It was so much fun that I was already thinking of sewing an obi for myself and made two!
