Well, yet again this past week was busy. I did manage to eek out a few pair of pants for Kailan. I have two more pair cut up for him that I need to get made yet. Then I made the kids their treat bags, too. That was super simple, so I won’t profess any great sewing ability on that front. Oh, and I also replaced the leather ties (that wouldn’t stay tied) on Anya’s mask with some of my sewing elastic. Now THAT was a toughie. 😉
Now for the pants. These are the same pants that I made him before. I just have pictures of the one…I hastily took it this morning on the way out the door. Not the best picture, but it shows it alright. I made two at the same time to get it done faster. Unfortunately the next two pairs are different colors, so I don’t think I will be able to do that for those pants. On this pair, the corduroy was embroidered with the dolphins (he thinks they are whales, but I think they look more like dolphins…sorta). Hopefully I will get a photo of the other one by next week.
In case you want to see more of Kailan’s vest, here are some close-ups. I made it two years ago and it still fits. Perhaps I made it a tad big, do you think?? He never wore it, so at least he got some use out of it…finally. It’s got real leather sewn on it, so it looks more like an “official knight”, right?? He put his costume on in the morning and wore it all day. At least it was comfortable. 🙂
Kailan’s teacher also asked if I would make some chair back, pocket things for her classroom. I said yes, but told her I had a few projects I needed to get done first. I need to get crackin’ on at least getting a mock up for her so I can see if what I make is up to snuff, and more importantly…fits the chairs.
Those baby blankets are looming heavy over my head, too. They aren’t that hard to make, so whyfor am I not getting it done?? Ah procrastination…you are such a good friend of mine!
