I know out here in Blogland, there's this nifty thing called Wordless Wednesday's. That sounds great, but I'm no good without words. I'm working on it, y'know, being so wordy... people have told me that when they read something that I've written, it's exactly like listening to me talk. Same inflection, same tone, same rambling on and on, the whole nine.
Sigh... Well, I can't help it, but today I'll try to be as wordless as possible.
Sew (hehe, pardon the pun) over the weekend, not only did I embroider that dahling little teapot potholder that you'll see if you kindly scroll down, I also made a skirt... from scratch!! It's actually my first garment ever. And I didn't have a pattern, I just copied a simple drawstring skirt that I've had forever and is really comfy - oh yeah - I'm trying to be wordless! Enough with the bla, bla, bla... on with the pictures!
Measure, measure, measure... (as we say in construction, measure twice, cut once.)
Ooh, batik... pretty!
Press, press, press...
Sew, sew, sew...
Embroidering button holes for the drawstring...
See, like this... not too neat, but I was going for completion. Not perfection.
Everything is nicer with a pink bow...
Hee hee! It's done! Now the big question... will it fit?
Taa Daaa! I love it! I'm sew (hehe) wearing this to work!!
