New projects

Yeah! The interfacing arrived!
Let's just say I hate to go shopping so it is so easy to just order stuff on-line. My interfacing arrived for some projects I have in mind. I bought some Pellon 72F which is heavy duty and some fusible woven. These are what the book I borrowed book from the library said I needed.

I want to make this storage baskets which I needed the heavy duty Pellon

And the iron on woven for these totes

I won't be able to start on these projects until my new iron arrives. My trusty Black and Decker Digital Advantage bit the dust two days ago. I had if for almost two years. It was not an expensive iron and as much as I use an iron I think I got my money's worth out of it. I am buying another B&D Digital Advantage as I really like this iron. The steam is decent and for a $40.00 iron and it has just enough weight to it.

In the meantime all I have to use is this crappy cheap iron, but at least I am grateful that I have the means to buy a new iron. I sure hope the new one arrives soon. The estimated delivery is the 28th.

I am going to need this to get thru this iron crises!

Just remember to sew responsibly. Don't drink and iron or rotary cut!

I think you got great value for that iron! I once bought a $300 iron with the promise that it would last forever. Less than 7 year later I got rid of that piece of crap. Now I buy Black and Deckers.

LOL......I used to make my own kahlua and amaretto! If I had to choose between the two I just don't know what I would do...

i understand about irons, we have a history, my iron and I.
