Two weeks ago, I made my grandsons TMNT cargo shorts using @BurdaStyle pattern 9641 for their DisneyWorld vacation. This morning my daughter text me a photo of the boys in their shorts having fun.
Most of my earrings I make myself. While on vacation, I lost my favorite pair in the Magic Kingdom. Today, I stumbled upon a shop that sells silver findings that had interesting sterling silver items.
I rushed home to find my wire and pliers to make the green gemstone set, then made a few miscellaneous pair of earrings.
After spending five days in DisneyWorld watching my 2 and 8 year grandsons faces light up in awe, I began to miss my sewing machines. I absolutely loved being with my boys on their first Disney trip however, my other babies were back home and my hands were restless. I missed my sewing room, I missed my fabric stash and yeah I will admit that also missed my husband.
This morning I found some lightweight knit fabric and made a dress suitable for a Disney character.
What do you think? Yay or nay?
Pattern makers are sleeping on adolescent boys and it can be frustrating trying to make them something that suitable. Using TMNT theme fabric, I made my grandsons cargo shorts with side pockets and front pockets for the summer. Yes, they are loud but the 8 year old is going to say “This is cool grandma!”
I’m making a fair attempt to go back to wearing vibrant colors. This morning I woke up and made a pair or drawstring pants (not shown) and tank to match (in blue on left). Then I found another piece of fabric that I used to make an additional tank. I love the blue but every time I look at the other, I’m thinking “Wonder Bread”!
The blue is definitely my style. I will have to force myself to wear the other and hear my husbands Wonder Bread jokes. Both were made using Simplicity pattern 1112.
Modifications: None. On the second (right), I elongated the blouse.
Would I make it again?: As you can see, I immediately made a second one.
Difficulty: The pattern instructions are super easy. The second one took 22 minutes to make.
