I love it when Lucy takes pictures cause I end up with fun angles and unexpected close-ups.
And she gives me a play-by-play while she’s shooting….
“Okay, now I’m going to get a shot of your bag. Now I’m taking a picture of just your feet. Now I’ll get Clara in the picture too.”
She’s the perfect photographer when I have a quick project to share, and need to be in the photos. And this silly project has taken me 5 years to tackle.
I bought this sweatshirt from the FIDM scholarship store in LA for $3 before Owen was born.
Pretty cute! It fits great.
I love the puffed sleeves and front pockets (and it goes great with my reversible color-blocked tote)
But the back looks like this, with cut marks and Sample stamps.
…which is why I’ve never worn it….and have been meaning to sew something over the top….but just couldn’t think of what to do….and it got shoved to the bottom of a pile…and I stumbled on it the other day when cleaning out my closet and decided to FINALLY fix the problem, by throwing a heart on it! Hearts solve everything right?
• I placed paper over the problem spot and hand-drew a heart
• I Cut out the heart from an interlock knit (from Joann’s)
• I pinned it like crazy, with part of the heart spilling over to the side seam
• Then I sewed it on top, sewing slowly and lifting my presser foot periodically to let the fabric relax and bounce back.
Successful hoodie! (that only took me 5 years and 15 minutes to sew)
And a mostly successful photoshoot (that always involves a little chaos and some pretty patient kids)
And that’s definitely a wrap.
Have a great weekend!
