So, I made the Hipster Henley out of this awesome mustard striped rib knit with pops of teal like I planned. I had Tater try it on, and he loved it, and proceeded to ask if it could be pajamas. Well, why not? I had just enough left over fabric to make a modified (I lengthened and added cuffs) version of the Go To Leggings pattern I had since this guy prefers long john style pajamas.
I think they’re a tad short, even with my lengthening, so the pants will probably go to Bean. But not before a matching PJs photo shoot involving jumping on the bed.
So, after day 5, my list looks like this:
- Tigger costume (procrastinating)
- 3 long sleeve Raglan t-shirts
- 1 long sleeve Hipster Henley
- 1 New pattern that I’m not talking about yet
- Raincoat (will blog tomorrow)
- 1 long sleeve Raglan t-shirt
- 1 Cool Cardigan
I am resolved to get over my procrastination about the Tigger costume tomorrow, so that I can finally move on to sewing the samples for my Blank Slates Holiday collection. Whoops, did I just let that slip? Yup, that’s part of what I’m working on. That and a final pattern for the Hipster collection I’m doing with Lil Blue Boo. Sneak peeks coming up later this month.
