It may seem a little quiet here on the old blog.
But rest assured that behind the scenes, I’ve sewn enough projects in the last few weeks to make my head explode!
(And let’s hope that doesn’t happen)
((or my videos will look pretty horrible)).
But video time….here we come!
Next week we’re shooting 15 new projects for MADE Everyday. It’s gonna be fun. It’s gonna be exhausting. My head is not going to explode—I have to keep telling myself that.
So let me give you a sneak peek at what I’ve been doing!
We’ve got a lot of dots…..
And KID shorts with yellow spots.
I’ve been sewing gingham and knits,
…..and gathering stacks.
Can you handle the tiger/kitty print?? Clara’s gonna freak over it.
I raided the napkin and towel section at the store for elephants.
and I’ve bought more dot fabric than you can shake a yard stick at.
Oh yea, I bought a yard stick.
I think everyone should have one.
I found 2-inch wide metallic gold elastic, and used it to make something for me! Yay!
My pile of felt seems to grow, then deplete, and then grow again.
And hey! I bought new zippers!
I mean, I bought ZIPPERS. A lot of them.
Don’t these colors make you happy??
And now I’m just tying up loose ends.
So that on Monday, we’re ready to go! (more on the shorts fabric here)
And just when I think the kids have no idea what their crazy mom is doing, Owen gives me this gem last night:
“When we grow up, and you’re old….if you forget how to sew, you can just go watch your videos on Youtube!”
Haha. Fantastic idea! I guess he’s got it right—at some point my head IS supposed to explode…
Good thing I’ve got those videos documented.
