Forgotten sewing treasures
Last night I was removing some disintegrated seam binding from a steering wheel cover my mom made for my step son a long time ago. Somehow we got it, I guess to repair it and it got burried and forgotten.
As I was doing that my wife was searching through boxes and boxes of things looking for patterns she knows she has but can't find.
She found a small white box and didn't remember ever seeing it. In the box was a small zip loc bag with a felt spool pad and 10 brand new presser foot thumb screws. And a paper bag with 100 nice fat felt spool pads. The receipt from the eBay seller was dated 1-3-01. My wife does not remember buying them, let alone why she bought them.
But one thing is for sure, we'll not run out of spool pads any time soon. :)
We put new bias tape on the steering wheel cover today and will be sending it back to my step son for Christmas.
