Sew Strapping

Sew Mama Sew’s Handmade Holiday starts our Saturday off with Day 10 – Ties and Belts!  Head on over there and get sewing!  Hmmm…being that I will have some nice button-down collared shirts in my upcoming wholesale boys’ clothing line, now I’m wondering if perhaps I should also add a few neckties…

Belts are a whole ‘nother subject…when someone says, “belt,” I immediately think of the threat of a Cat o’ Nine Tail.  Never was I the recipient of such a beating (nor did we own one).  However, as a child, my parents’ threats kept me in line (well, most of the time).

Happy Sewing!
