week 150-151

As it turns out, it takes a short while before you get itchy and want to start making things again.

The unintentional lapse of a post last week was because I wasn’t in the mood to write anything until last Friday so just saved it up for today’s post.

I didn’t get very far in fixing my closet as the whole middle is still on the floor.

(I wouldn’t recommend this but I used a circular saw in a pretty unsafe manner to trim off the top and in the process made a slight shallow cut in a finger, which has healed completely by now. I didn’t have on gloves, a face mask or eye protection (my glasses don’t count) but my hair was up. Still. Not at all safe.)

My closet as of today.

Last week, I realised just how out of practice I am with the sewing machine.

My mom has been bugging me to fix her pajama shorts and I had plaid fabric lying around from an unmade Halloween costume.

I cut too much fabric but it looks fairly decent, although I did the bottom cuffs before making them shorts.

I haven’t attached the elastic waistband yet.

Still having tons of fabric leftover, I tried to make a top but couldn’t get it on past my shoulders so got frustrated and took it all apart.

I turned it into a purse.

I also finished sewing up the second fake fur pillow, rather badly.

I have spent the majority of my time trying to finish my knit cardigan to the point the sleeves were not wide enough so I decided crochet will be part of it now.

The seams still have to be finished then add the patch pockets.

Not sure of a border all around.

Then another project done.

I have had a vague idea in my head for a while of using up the embroidery thread and, so far, it looks like this.

      Not as productive as I’d like but removing books and taking apart shelving takes more time than I thought it would be. I’m hoping assembly will take way less time once I drill the holes into the middle piece.
