In sewing activities, I am sewing up a new pattern for Melissa, which looks like an easy pattern to sew, though I think it is going to require some alteration to the front bodice, but we will see when she tries on the toile. It is great when you finally get a pattern to fit because you can reuse it with confidence and less hassle. We need to get started on a pants pattern for her, too, so I can make some comfy flannel pull-on PJ bottoms to wear around the house, or what Melissa calls 'fat pants'. The world is a more pleasant place when you own several pairs of fat pants. I have some cute flannel with a sushi print all over it, and that will be perfect for her.
I made a great bag out of the leftovers from Abby's pencil skirt, a decorator fabric miniprint of black swirls on cream background. The bag is nice and large and turned out great, so now I have to cut it out of the intended fabric, a corduroy print with cute owls on it. We have only a scant yard of the fabric so I have been trying different layouts to see if the whole pattern will fit, and I think it will. The lining will be hot pink, so it will be a bag of primo cuteness.
I have other bags that have been requested, including a large travel tote made out of an origami print from IKEA with bright orange lining, and I have some striking black and white prints that would make splendid bags.
Now it is time to go rest and watch some movies, then to cook up some dinner.
