The sewing machine came out of the box, bobbins were threaded and sewing was done. Frankenbags were made. Okay, they aren't too bad for the first thing ever to be sewn in this house. Everyone seems to enjoy them. The next batch will be only filled with rice (beans are to hard and heavy) and they will be a bit more creative in appearance. We have big plans for you little sewing machine-bags, pillowcases, capes, sleepsacks, quilts......oh just think of it all.
