First I made a dress for my niece.
|Monkey trying on her cousin's dress|
|The skirt barely covers Monkey's bum, and I had to really fight to get in onto her.|
|I am a big fan of the train ribbon that I used.|
Then I got to work on the next project out of the almost free fabric is going to be a birthday skirt for Monkey. I picked the green and pink broadcloth and set to work cutting strips, and sewing them together to make a set of stripes. Then I cut all set of the stripes into 7 different widths. 3/4 inch to 2 1/4 inch.
|The end of the set of the stripes, forgot to take a picture earlier.|
|Nice variety of widths.|
Next I am going to sew all those strips back into a useable length of fabric and it will be a skirt that fits Monkey (I hope). I probably could have made progress on that tonight, but instead I searched for fabric online and procrastinated. I probably could have got some stain on the Ugly Hutchling too... but I didn't. Oh well I have lots more weekend to work on both projects.
Enjoy May Long Weekend. Hopefully the weather stays nice for everyone.
