I have been so busy working on projects that have been learning opportunities
(ie, big fat failures)
that I don't really want to post them tonight. I do have some successes, but the main thing I have been working on is designing and creating a shirt for myself, without a pattern.
Why without a pattern? You might ask...
Well, I really have no idea anymore!
At first it was because I just hate to read patterns.
But now I'm thinking PATTERNS are starting to look pretty good!
I made one that I knew wouldn't be able to be worn, but after the facing came out so nicely, I was disappointed that I made it from a junky, dirty old sheet! Because really, no matter how nice it comes out, it still looks like a sheet! LOL
then another - which I sewed, then cut, then sewed, all trying to avoid making those facings that I made so well in the Sheet-Shirt (above) - mostly because, I think, I wanted to just get one DONE! And WEAR IT! Have you ever felt that way? Sure you have. No comments about this fabric pattern.
And finally, tonight, I started a third. I was doing some interesting things, and I think it is going to really look nice when it is complete...
But at this moment I am fairly certain that it won't fit me! so basically I'm making a dress for my daughter, lol. And I still don't have a new shirt that I like!
So that's it. I've been making LOTS of zippered pouches, which I love, but haven't posted yet. I really should, because EVERYONE should make them - they give me such a sense of accomplishment. They are so cute and useful, too!
Have a great day, and as always,
I hope you get the chance to get creative today!
