    I’m more of a knitter, but I used to sew stuffed toys when I was a teenager. I’d like to try my hand at it again, maybe make my own version of Golden the Pony Boy from The Science of Sleep.

    I would like to sew a Hussif to hold sewing supplies while on road trips. It would keep things handy and there would be a place for everything with out me having to hunt for them.
