I have not been doing any sewing since the end of May . However , FINALLY !!!! , I got back at it !
I made some promises to some , and now , it's all piled up and needs to be done !!! YAY for pressure ! And then , I saw this post as I was cruising the internet , INSTEAD of sewing ! ( ha )
It's Amy Creative Side ONE THING , ONE WEEK CHALLENGE !! I knew it was time to get serious . Even though I saw it late in the week , I posted !! ( thanks Amy !)
Here is what I accomplished :
-- 3 zipper pouches out of some prequilted fabric bought a long , long time ago !
-- Repurposed 2 pair of jeans into capris ( and had to do some adjustments in the fit !) ( Couldn't find any in my size at Kohl's big sale and I had a 30% off on top of that ; however , I did get a good deal on 2 pair of jeans for hubby for work !! )
-- AND a big pile ( 17 ) of flannel burp rags cut out and all ready to be sewn TODAY !!!!
After the burp rags are done , I will be starting to make shorts for boys for Kristy's monthly project ; see her blogpost here !! http://hopefulthreads.blogspot.com/2012/07/july-2012-monthly-project-announcement.html
You can get a free download of an awesome shorts pattern from Fishticks Designs for FREE if you help out !!!
Now , I must get OFF THE COMPUTER , take a shower AND THEN GET BUSY SEWING !!!
THANKS for stopping by ! and PLEASE PLEASE consider making some shorts for some boys in Cambodia -- they really need them !!!
Have a wonderful and blessed day !!
