So with half term over and some spare time on my hands again, I am gently easing myself back into sewing.
Starting with what should be one of the simplest sewing projects, a recorder bag for my daughter. She loves the Sarah Jane Children at Play fabric, and chose the balloons print. I think it is my favourite too.
The recorder is a new
torture device source of joy in our lives. The book of music that came with the recorder has 'songs' which are basically the same note blown at top volume till you get the trademark recorder-shriek. Even when sent to her room to practice, there is no escaping that sound.
these are advanced songs with more than one note
So I find myself saying 'blow it gently, it's not meant to make that noise' A LOT. Maybe I should have embroidered those words on the bag. Maybe she'll learn, although I wonder if it is ever possible for a recorder to sound that good.
I am mid-way through making a skirt from this Melody Miller fabric, this recorder case being my warm up, I will hopefully make some progress there this week too.
