Week 3 Sewing Challenge: Sew a Pattern you Own, but Haven’t Sewn

The biggest challenge this week was choosing one of the many MANY patterns I have purchased that I haven’t made yet.

What helped narrow down the large list?

Necessity. LOL!

We are currently remodeling our laundry/mud room and for most of the week our washer and dryer were disconnected.

Guess what I ran out of…..

So, thankfully, I had this underwear pattern in my arsenal. Chastity’s from CKC to the rescue this week!

And…..since I have plenty of MILLION BABY CHICKS fabric (double brushed poly) scraps….I used those to make myself a few more!

I wasn’t expecting all the excitement I received when I posted about these….but since many of you asked, I did make a listing for you to purchase a 5 pack of your very own. (or you can just click on the SHOP button up top)

Comfy bums for all!

Week 2 Sewing Challenge: WIP/UFO

When I saw this prompt on the list for challenges… I had no idea what they were talking about.

So, to save you a Google search… WIP stands for “work in progress”, and UFO stands for “unfinished object”.

After cleaning and organizing my sewing studio last week, I came across this whole bin of unfinished objects. What was crazy about it: a lot of them I remembered but there were a few in there that I had no idea were started and not finished.

Soooo this week I took a day to finish some of these items… It was an interesting journey, to say the least.

You see, two of these items were not started by me. Two of these skirts were started by my mother. I don’t know how long ago that would’ve been… Since she passed away in October 2017… It was before then. But I would have to say some of these were started in 2012 or before.

I can’t even describe how this feels. My mom and I both worked on these pieces….

I guess it’s just bittersweet.

………………………

These other three pieces I remember starting myself….but some might be as old as 2010…..

It’s so weird that I took so long to finish them. If you want to know why…..well, your guess is as good as mine…

Nostalgia.

Relief.

A little sadness.

Accomplishment.

Week 2 Sewing Challenge complete.

Also a WIP…..if you click on that Shop button, it no longer drives you to My Etsy Shop but to the shop on This Website! Hoping to add more to that soon!
