Me: Hi Sweetie! Can you hold this for mommy? <click>
Me: What is it?
N: Shorts! <click>
Me: What a good boy! Can I have the shorts back before Daddy sees what I did?
No, my son isn’t actually wearing the skirt, but doesn’t it look much nicer with some pudgy legs sticking out the bottom? I made this skirt for Sewing Seeds using Rebecca’s tiered-skirt tutorial now posted here. There isn’t a better reason to force me to sew a skirt than for a little girl living in an orphanage in Kenya, I believe. Even though this is considered an easy skirt, it took me a while. I’m seriously clothes-sewing challenged, you know.
My 16 allergy shots in one day ordeal went fine, although my arms were pretty sore. In addition to mindless hours of reading magazines and watching TV, which I actually got sick of, I finished several pincushions. None of these in the picture are here anymore. Each of them went out to friends across the country today.
And another stashbusting bag. My friend Lizzie, who has an eye for color helped me put these fabrics together. Thanks, Lizzie!
My leather straps are 1/2″ wide saddle strings from www.tandyleather.com. They are 48″ long and I cut them in half to make two 24″ long purse straps. I buy them by the dozen, which saves on shipping. I’ve listed some in my shop before and might be pursuaded to do so again if you just want to try 1 or 2.
