A Smock for Tools

So my sewing room has been an unusable mess--first the floor was completely filled with yet-to-be-mounted cabinets, then the cabinets were hung and all the fabric was in stacks in another room, then the shelves were being painted, and you know how the re-doing a room dance goes.


I am like the man without a country when I can't sew. I did take some vicarious sewing satisfaction in helping my Sewing Circle girls work on their projects, but not the same!


Now, at last, I am back at my machine. I made a little boy's smock which David graciously modelled. Because it's all about tools. Tools to help you rebuild the sewing room. Screwdrivers. Tape measures.


And a headlamp, because he wanted it.

(Look for it in Etsy later this week!)

Look for what - the headlamp? (just joking.)

LOVE it. And love David's Very Serious expression. Because being in command of a smock o' tools is serious business! He reminds me of my little guy.

The headlamp totally completes the look.

Darling! And I hope you will post photos of your re-done sewing room. I'd love to see it!

Love the smock, love David so serious, and loved The Man Without a Country, can't wait to read it again with Audrey this year.
Happy sewing!

Love the smock! I have two little boys who would really get a kick out of having tools in pockets! Sure wish I could be in your Sewing Circle!

I have a 4 yr old named Bella, too! When you say you are maried to a composer, what kind of music does he write?

I'd buy the cute little boy, if he weren't already mine!
