A sweater for my boy, made from an old sweaters. I added wool patches the the elbows, I love elbow patches, they’re so cute old man. The collar is this faux-turtleneck/scarf ordeal with Velcro. I get such satisfaction out of designing things for boys, it’s just different than cute little dresses for girls, do you know what I mean? Some of my favorite pieces have been for him, like this jacket. Maybe, I just love outerwear, and by maybe, I mean I absolutely do. Is a sweater technically outerwear?
I love this pillow, late one night I felt the unquenchable urge to sew, and that’s how it happened. It adds so much color and fun to our living room. I couldn’t resist the free as birds fabric from cloud 9, paired with a red linen and yellow lace. The reserve side is plain, because I could only buy a few birds, sadly not all of them. I now want to redo all the pillows into fun, mix-matched designs, I don’t even know how I’ve had matching pillows for this long. I apologize for that boringness. I should know better.
I bought some fabric for dresses, but it turns out it’s not fabulous dress-making material –literally. I also have cute coat patterns that I’ve been dying to make for that baby girl of mine, who I caught doing a downward dog this morning. I’m very disappointed in her behavior.
Speaking of sewing, that talented Jessica is hosting an Oliver + S Little things to Sew-a-long. Each month, we are making one project out of the book. I’m excited to start.
There is it, the sewing report.
