a sewing project you can do on a car trip


On Saturday, I brought along a little sewing project to do in the car. I'm not into car rides over an hour. I'm a bit impatient. The only time I can deal with driving longer is at night. I easily get car-sick: windy roads, stop and go traffic, heat..almost anything sets off the queasies. I most certainly can't knit in the car which is so sad because I really don't like to be idle but, I learned that a simple sewing project like this one was totally doable. Yay! I had been looking for something in my closet with a peter pan collar but, I only had this beautiful red vintage blouse with a small peter pan collar (must do something about this!) and I didn't want to sew the buttons on that.
This little jacket seemed like a good alternative to embellish with buttons so here it is and I love it!

WOAH! SO clever!! Where did you come up with this idea? I love the sophistication and whimsy of it.

What a great idea! I was sorting buttons today wondering what I should do with some of them... and this is GREAT! :D
