Eghads! I actually managed to sew something people. I haven’t sewn/cut out ANYTHING since I started back at work in July. It helped soothe me on that mental health day I took. Miss CT was in desperate need of pjs and I have had this lovely knit fabric in the stash since summer 2007. Originally, i planned to make CT a fancy schmancy onsie with ruffles out of this fabric. Ki the demon overlocker killed that idea. Seeing that we tolerate each other, I figured that trying any fancy moves was not a good move without Donnie the machine whisperer around.
So on Wednesday, CT and I found a new rhythm. The how mummy can sew while CT is awake. My cunning plan included a display book folder full of patterns, a pair of saftey scissors that cut nothing (it’s the thought that counts, no? Besides in CT’s world she was cutting out her pjs like a pro) and a pin cushion (because everyone needs a pin official, no?). The pattern is the same as this one but I didn’t have enough for a pair of pants, so the shirt is longer. I added pockets (it’s easier to see if you look at a larger size at Flickr) and used ribbing instead of elastic around the neck. Gathering knit fabrics is not so easy but I like the overall effect and so does CT. Mental note to self, CT doesn’t pose for clothing photos anymore. The hair? Yes, she’s had a haircut last Saturday and it was all her idea. Sniff, I miss the pretty hair already.
OMG I just realised a month after I wrote the post, that I forgot to post it… EGADS alright!!
