Yesterday I decided it was time to start sewing the clothes I wanted to get done for me, figured I’d start with my October bee box fabric.
After much struggle and swearing here it is, Agnes by Halla Patterns. My machine thought this fabric was delicious, I had to remove the bottom plate of my machine 3 times to get my fabric out. Next time I’m just serging it instead of sewing on my regular machine. Luckily nobody will be examining the interior of my shirt.
Today I’ve been exceptionally productive, cutting and mostly assembling 5 shirts. Granted 3 of them are for kids, but I’m still calling it a win. Black widow is a Girls La Bella Donna by Love Notions size 2T for my niece Abby. Thor and Captain America are both Max Raglans size 6/7. Thor is for Abby’s brother Aiden and Captain America is for my niece Lyndsey. Initially Aiden was going to get both of the raglans, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought I’d ask my sister in law if Lyndsey would like a shirt. So Captains shirt has the rounded hem and the sleeves have more purple in them.
I also have most of 2 Bella Donna tops made too, this one is Mom’s. Mine is Ursula but apparently I didn’t take a picture of it. Apparently I threw away the pattern pieces for the arm binding, so I’ll end up finishing the Bella Donna trio when I get home. More planned for tomorrow, hoping to get some ninja leggings done.
I leave you with a picture of the Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Cake I made for dessert last night. Tasted wonderful but I don’t think I can make it again, this dessert has 2 sticks of butter in it. Plus cream cheese! And then you top it with whipped cream, it’s a cardiologists dream dessert.
