Last week my husband was away for several days, leading band workshops for church musicians (!), so in my lonliness I started sewing. It was a good lonliness I want to add.
The first night, after son E had gone to sleep, I refashioned hubby's old worn out jeans into baggy pants for E.
I was a bit optimistic thinking I would not have to make any changes to the hip, except for the rubber band in the waist. They ended up being HUGE on the little fella'. Baggy indeed:) But it was a good refashion exercise!
The next evening I made a doorstop. A bag made out of one piece of fabric, filled with brown beans. I am proud of the handle.
I tried to feed the beans into the bag with the help of a funnel, but they got stuck in the pipe. By hand was the way to go!
And in action! Very pleased with the result of this project.
After two nights I stopped sewing. I twisted my ankle going outdoors on the third morning of my being home alone with E so I was mostly inspired to sit calmly on the couch that evening.
But I do have one more sewing project to show; classic brace trousers (are they called that?). The pattern is from the book Baby Cool. Easy pattern but it needs alterations. These are the "try out pants", they do not fit perfectly, but I think E will wear them.
I got to use my bias tape maker once more, and I do really love sewing bias tape! Don't they look like gardener trousers, colour and all:)!
Have a good Tuesday!
