Something that I’ve noticed since taking up painting with such vigour is that sewing is fun again. I don’t know when sewing had stopped being fun, but it’s nice to find enthusiasm and ideas springing up again.
This was just a quick little t-shirt surgery I whipped up the other night:
Cut the sleeves off one too-small tee, and open the shoulder seams. Serge closed the sides where the arms were, tapering gradually to the remaining side seam. Cut two long rectangles of contrasting jersey to make ‘straps’ and attach. Embellish with silly mesh and lots of jersy polka dots. Ta da!
Also, I finished my noro scarf!
Isn’t she pretty?
Keeping me warm on these brisk bright days…
