C'mon you tough manly men...who sews? I've hand sewn my whole life it seems. I'm always fixing buttons and stuffed animals(six kids). This week I bought myself a sewing machine to learn a new skill, and to make some of my own gear. So far I've made several things...some semi-failures. The highlights are a nifty little center zip pouch, and what I call the UmLiddy...a top lid pouch for my Umlindi. They're crude and missing some details I'd like for them to have when in the "final" stage...but they're a start lol.
