~Super Kawaii~ part 2

I had to run to my favorite craft store this morning for seam rippers to fix those Chococat pants' length but of course after I checked out, I got a text from my dear husband that he had found the other ones. Oh well, the presence of two seam rippers in the house just means I have much more sewing fun to come, right?

Those Kereppi pants whipped right up, with nary a glance at the directions, and with seams much more steady than yesterday. I think PJ pants are the perfect learn-to-sew project. I certainly learned a few things, one of which is that my iron has an automatic shut-off if its left on for too long. I've never left it on so long that it had to switch itself off, the ironing of things is not my favorite activity.

Really, so great, but all the stuff!! Sewing needs so many odds and ends, I'm going to have to learn to stock up on certain things so that I don't have to keep making trips to the craft store. . . and maybe get a big, beautiful basket to stash it all in.

I'm feeling so much more confident in my abilities, I'm sure it's going to be a fun year!

Okay I'm off to finish Lola's new winter hat. . . but first I think I'll make some Oyster Cracker snacks - yum!

  1. I have the problem that I buy cute fabric ALL the time.... and buttons.... and thread.... and then I never get around to sewing!!!!

    Goal for Sunday? Buy a WHOLE bunch of storage bins to get my office/sewing room in order so that I have ROOM to sew!!!!

    (Maybe I'll pick up a pattern and some fabric for some PJ pants for the girls while I'm at it?)
