|The whole thing. I think of this as "upside down" but it really doesn't matter|
|You can see where I unfolded the cuff of a pair of capris|
|A nice square corner, with the other pocket|
|The whole pocket with rivet|
|That khaki piece on the edge is one of the major causes of wonkiness and unsquareness|
|Green geometric bit! Love it|
|Things look straight in the narrow view, but in fact they are not|
I'm very happy with it, and various people have sat with it over their laps in recent days, so we can call it an all-round success, I think. Funny story: I went to our local stationer's/art supply store to get a skein of embroidery cotton for the ties. What do they cost, $2 or so? This shop only had packages. I was offereed 16 skeins for $18 or, for another dollar, 105 skeins. Since 16 is already a lifetime supply, and that was the good stuff, I went against my thrifty nature and passed on the 105, which were identified only with "Made in China."
My sewing is now on hold because I don't have a machine, but I am plotting to get one of those rotary cutters and hit the thrift shops to search out gigantic pairs of faded jeans. I have knit a sock and have planned my project for the Olympics. I'll report in on that this coming week.
