Day 9: Gather Your Tools for FOCUS

I dropped this sewing machine off to be oiled and tuned up.   I bought it  1 1/2 years ago.  It worked really well, then the old oil in the machine started complaining, so off it went to the repair shop.  I hope it is ready for action now, because this machine is awesome for doll arms and legs, because it has dual tension.  Dual tension means the top layer of fabric doesn't shift as the feed-dogs push the fabric through.  

So I have what I need to FOCUS on FINISHING! 
Fabric, thread, sewing machine.....

I have wanted one of my dolls to wear custom designed fabric so am working on some colorways of this Izannah patent conversation print.  I'm getting some samples in dark blue and darker red.  Fun!
