Parachute

Just to keep things interesting I'm currently working on a play parachute for some family friends' acro-gymnastics club. It's a gift for their new premises launch on Monday (so I'd best get cracking if it's going to be finished on time!). I went for Olympic-ish colours which seemed appropriate for a sports club.


Working with ripstop nylon really takes me back to my college days when I had a part time job as a machinist making hot air balloons -only then I had a great twin needle industrial machine to use. It's much more of a nuisance than I remember on my trusty little Bernina.

I can't say I have a burning desire to work with it again any time soon...
