Nothing exciting, just some stuff in my pile that needed to be done. and, one of the items isn't sewing at all.
this thing is just hideous. My husband wears a small but was IN LOVE with this thermal plaid thing he got as a hand me down from his friend who wears a large. yeah. when he wore it (entirely too often) he looked like he was wearing a plaid thermal nightgown. So cute! Even tho I considered making a matching nightcap, I didn't. Instead I took this shirt apart, cut it down to a size small and sewed it back together.(very fast and easy w/ the serger...I left the collar and cuffs on) So, now it fits perfectly. But, it's still ugly.
I used to be fat a couple months ago..ok, maybe a year ago. Anyway, I had this fantastic velour track suit in some gigantic size I don't wear now. The jacket is still too big, but I cut off the waist band of the pants, and cut them apart at the crotch. I used a smaller size pattern to cut them the appropriate size and resewed them. Super fast, and now they fit. Viola!
and then I stenciled this Ganesha onto the front of Aldous' shirt. I made this shirt 2 or 3 years ago for William but was sick of it, so I fixed it up a little. Aldous likes it.
I'm ready to get back to some serious sewing! I'm considering the stash game on Sewing Mamas, but I don't have as much time to sew as I used to. Maybe I'll try it anyway! The first thing I want to make is a yoga mat bag. I've made one for my sister in law, but I've been working out 5 days per week and need one for myself!
Have a great week!
