A tiny glimpse into the workings of my brain...

I was gifted a very precious 90 minutes this afternoon of Time-To-Myself while my husband took the girls to the park. I decided to use it wisely and make a couple of small drawstring bags for some things in my oldest's special feeding-time bag. Very do-able.

I pulled out my fabric options, and chose a couple that would work nicely. I ironed the first fabric and cut the piece I intended to use.

Speed bump number 1:
How do I thread the bobbin again?

After consulting the manual and still having thread-breaking issues, I re-threaded the top thread after consulting the manual again, and the machine sewed. Success!

Temporary success.
The right side is supposed to face IN when sewing seams.

Bugger.

Now where's my seam ripper?

If it's any consolation, it doesn't take a newborn in the house to achieve that sort of brain fade. Sadly.

Grrr. But yay for 90 mins alone...?
