WIP Wednesday: Sewing and a dead computer

Dead computers make writing a post so difficult. My home computer died, and I am currently trying to write this post on my tablet. If it looks less than stellar, I apologize ahead of time. Fortunately sewing doesn’t require a blog.

So what are y’all working on? My youngest has had camp all week, she has been coming hone with “camp homework” every day. Tuesday’s homework was to make a flag of one of the four teams that were in the World Cup. It was far too hot to bake. Using paper and colored markers was much too normal.

I grabbed a white fat quarter, cut it in four 9″x 10 1/2″ rectangles. Then I grabbed from red from my stash, cut a 2 1/2″ strip, and subcut that into two 9 inch strips and a 24″ strip. Pulling out my sewing machine was probably my hardest part. I sewed the 9 inch strips to two of the white quarters.

After that, I sewed the remaining two quarters to the other side of the red strips. Now I had two halves that were white with a red stripe going through it. I sewed those together with the 24″ red stripe going between them.

Seriously, it took me a total of about 30 minutes, including me searching my stash to find the fabric, and cut it. It was probably the easiest project I have done on my sewing machine. And at the end of the day, she got second place on Tuesday. Beaten out of course by rice krispie treats in the form of a flag.

A shame England is out though! I guess I will be rooting for Croatia, the underdog.
