I made something a couple of months ago. Which isn't big news. I've been making plenty of somethings. But today I'm actually blogging about it! It's a Mother's Day-Eve Miracle! I checked out a book from the library called Twinkle Sews by Wenlan Chia. I have checked this book out probably four times. It's just so pretty to look at. But this time I finally made something from it.
I tried the Take Manhattan Tunic.It's my first PDF pattern. This means I printed out approximately one gazillion pages, cut them up, taped them back together and then cut out the pattern pieces. You know the drill.
The Selfish Seamstress' faux fur pullover. (*sigh* Remember when she used to blog?) But I thought I'd try and make a wearable muslin first. I know, I know, I never do that. Another first.
Also, I'd like to make some sort of promise to be a better blogger, but I would just be lying. Sometimes the thought of blogging actually keeps me from sewing. I thought I might have more success if I started chronicling what I'm sewing day to day with snapshots on Twitter. @chchchooux But I haven't been too good at keeping on top of that either. I gotta figure something out though, because I sure like to have a journal, if you will, of the crap I sew. Also, I really enjoy reading other folks' sewing blogs, and sometimes I do want to join in the community and be a regular blogger. I would also love to have enough stuff sewn up by next May to join in the Me-Made-May festivities I've been seeing all over the sewyblogdom. Only time will tell. I would cross my fingers, but I wouldn't get much sewing done that way.
