So Much for Sewing

I haven't been sewing at all. It's driving me nuts. I have been pattern tracing. I even set up a second table in our dining/living room to use for tracing. Our dining table just wasn't working out on account of needing to use it for what it was actually intended... dining. Silly details.


In other totally unrelated news I finally got my order from Vintage Lucy's. I just love their funky t-shirts. I've bought a few in the past and when Cenzo outgrew them I missed them, so instead of making him some cute clothes I took a shortcut and bought them. The only thing I don't totally love is the logo on the back neck (third photo), is a little girlie looking. That paired with my inability to cut his hair so that he resembles a boy kind of puts it over the top.

p.s. The moccasins (above left) I made are still fitting him. Barely. I need a source for leather. Damn you local thrift shops. There has been nothing I tell you. Nothing!

Wait, I love his hair! Of course, my little guy's hair is very similar, and while I'll trim enough that he can actually see, I can't bring myself to let go of the shag. Keep the shag!

I've been so crappy at actually sewing stuff too. Hopefully I'll snap out of it soon!

Fabric Mart has nice leather, and I think it is 50% off right now.

Okay, I *really* don't tend to do this kind of self-promotion, but I do custom robot (and other) stuff on hand-dyed shirts & onesies (my son is IN LOVE with robots, so that's where I started), so if you ever want more robot stuff, do let me know - http://www.etsy.com/shop/katiemadethis

Love your blog :)

Dear anonymous,

Can I kiss you?

You must be getting ready for KCWC?!?!??!? I'm dying to know what fantastic creations you'll come up with. Totally assuming here. My ideas are so jumbled I'm almost too overwhelmed to sew.

Love love love the robot shirt. Damn being in Australia sometimes and the postage from the States for one t-shirt!

I am totally lame at cutting my toddler's hair too. Luckily he really suits blue, so there's usually a hint of his gender in his outfit!

I am spendinng my lief tracing at the moment - I'm cutting out pieces for a negroni shirt, and those pattern pieces are BIG.

Ughh! I hate pattern tracing...but I suppose it's a necessary evil...
