so I finished this shirt but I haven't taken a photo yet. was going to wear it to church but it is apparently more of a jeans top...
in other repurposing news, I got this fabulous cashmere sweater from friend Hannah who accidentally shrunk it a bit and had high hopes for myself but it was just too shrunk for me too. I looked like a stripey sausage:
lots of crafty bloggers have been making pillows from old sweaters but pillows of this sort weren't going to match anything in my place so I thought I would try something I hadn't done in about 8 years - turn a grown up shirt into a baby shirt:
yes, that is a stain on my carpet. no, there were no spots without stains in which to take the photo. deal.
I accidentally sewed the first sleeve on inside out. hearing my wail, my husband wandered in and asked what was wrong.
"I sewed the sleeve on inside out! how does that even HAPPEN?!" (because, really, i ought to know how to do it by now, don't you think?)
"Looks like a new trend to me. Inside out sleeves."
"Are you suggesting I sew the other sleeve on inside out on purpose?"
And so I did.
