I KNOW I took lots of pics and maybe even a video. I'm going to have to check. Hold on....
Yes! I did make a short one. VERY short actually, since I am down on my knees with Jackie!
I finished the blouse in the above video just in time for Phylly to arrive for our Saturday play day. Phylly had on her new Louise Cutting pattern blouse, and it is very special because it has buttons from one of Jerry's mother's blouses.
Remember how we sat in the floor and cut buttons off of her old blouses for hours? These buttons were a PERFECT match.
We posed together for you to show you both of our blouses:
I purchased my FIRST border print when I was at JoAnn's the other day. It didn't turn out as cute as I thought it would, but I did get a compliment on it when I wore it to lunch with Phylly that day.
ANDDDDD! I got a compliment on my frog blouse at the grocery store the other day!
Just a day or two BEFORE our play day, I was bored. I've been home alone for two weeks, and a girl gets bored when left alone that long. I was out to lunch, and Hobby Lobby was right next door to where I ate, so I thought to myself:
"I should go into Hobby Lobby and just walk fast up and down the aisles and get some aerobic exercise. I don't have to buy anything."
And -- really and truly -- that is what I was doing. I didn't even get a basket. But as I was walking by the fabric department this really bright fabric just SHOUTED OUT to me, "LOOK OVER HERE!"
I thought it wouldn't hurt anything to just walk in that direction, so I did.
The closer I got, the more I liked this fabric. You surely know by now that I love BRIGHT colors and PRINTS.
I pulled it off the shelf -- grabbed a matching solid to go with it, and walked over to the cutting table. It was 30% off, so wasn't too expensive.
When I got home, I washed it and pressed it. THEN I had to ask Phylly WHICH way I should make it. The flowers on top or the plain on top? I decided to take some pics to help me decide.
What do you think?
This will be capris and a blouse. I will be cutting it out next. Hopefully, I won't have to wear this one only to bed.
I've got to finish my latest capris. My sister told me to try denim, so I am. It is a pretty turquoise. I'll have them done real soon IF I get off this computer.
