OK, I've come up with the idea. Now you just need to make it happen. "You" meaning you. Reading this. If you know someone, or are someone, who can get this ball rolling. Fast. Don't even read the rest of this; time is of the essence.
If you don't and aren't that someone, feel free to keep reading.
Here's some stuff I made since the last post.
several pairs of PJs
So cozy in winter. Hard to sew but worth the work because it's so fun to imagine the kids wearing them... especially with their initial on the pocket, a touch I love to add! Also love the soft flannels, and the reminiscences brought back by some of the plaids. (Red Royal Stewart plaid makes me think of freshman year in college, when we all seemed to have the same L.L. Bean pajamas in that fabric... and sometimes wore them to breakfast!)
I had myself a little online fabric shopping spree a while back and chose some new prints with which to make this case. People kept ordering the old ones, which was fine, but I was super excited when a couple of orders rolled in for ones made with some of my lovely new fabrics!
Another poem-and-painting, this one for Emily Dickinson's "'Hope' is the thing with feathers."
Call me a relic, dinosaur, anachronism, what have you -- I like to write things down on paper. And I love upcycling old cereal boxes into journals. And I adore what Tucker, my 6-year-old, wrote on the first page when I wasn't looking.
Not just any tunic: the perfect tunic. At least for me. I've seen and sewn so many, and none quite does it for me, so I've been trying to design the goldilocks of tunics: not too boxy, not too shapeless, just right! I went through a bunch of fails and saved this pretty fabric I bought a while ago for when I had it nailed down. I think I did! Notwithstanding the none-too-flattering photos. Blame it on bad perspective and my lacking the patience to wait for someone besides myself or my 6-year-old to take a picture of it.
