Let Me Sew!

This is my first upcycle of the year (well, posted to the blog, anyway, because there will be two surprises! Stay tuned....).

This refashion involved cutting off the top, hemming the cut edges, folding over the hemmed edges and sewing it to create a 1" tube, inserting an elastic band into the tube, and voila! You are done within an hour (or less if you are a sewing whizz!). 

So you must be wondering why i called this post "Let Me Sew". Well, I had the song "Let it Go" in my head when I was sewing this, but the "go" became "sew", while "it" became "me" and the lyrics went like this:

"Let me sew, let me sew, let the needle goooo,
Let me sew, let me sew, let the fabric flooooowww,
Here I am with my chalk in hand,
Ready to make a mark.....
A jammed machine never bothered me anyway."

Is that too corny? But it's how you feel when you are in the flow of things, right ?  This is me and how I felt after the making! Have you ever felt this good, especially after having made something? :-)
