So, this past week has been filled with items that I wouldn’t willingly stitch. I made a super cute nursing cover. I hemmed pants (the right way–no shortcuts)…mostly because I got to use my serger; although, I realized that no one’s ever asked me to do it. Funny, that. Yesterday, I reattached a button to the husband’s coat. Today, I made a Boppy cover to match the nursing apron, and added a bonus waist strap (Boppy moms out there know what I’m talkin’ ’bout). Tomorrow, I’m making a car mirror for the tiny princess, framed with lots of patterns for her developing baby brain. If all goes well, I’ll be able to put it in line with the rear view mirror so that we can get a glimpse of her while driving, if necessary.
I don’t mind doing all this mundane sewing–it’s obvious that I need to work on my skills sewing zippers and the like. But, man, do I ever need a fun project. I’m thinking about working on a dryad ensemble using the green bodice from the beginning of the year as a base. I want to make a long sort of chemise out of cotton gauze remnants, and I do have the rest of the green fabric to make a short skirt. I picked up some wood buttons from the findings section, which I think I’ll use for jewelry. That should get me started. Or, maybe I’ll finally work on a plain white shirt and pants for my Mistborn ensemble. Or, maybe I’ll do something pirate-y. Or maybe I’ll just learn to do rolled edges with the serger–I have a bag full of belly dance veils and scarves that are fraying like mad.
Anyway, off to change a diaper and catch a nap! Thanks for reading!
