What's lined up for today, you ask?
Thursday the 27th February: Sew Grateful Sewing Project Day. Showcase your latest sewing project. Whether it's a project using up that pattern that was a present from someone or that you won in a giveaway or using a tutorial someone has prepared, or even a project inspired by someone in the sewing community... the possibilities are nearly endless!
*sigh* I don't really have anything sewn up - and certainly not recently - that lands in that criteria. Not really, anyways. But I have a little tutorial to share with you all for a very simple and fun project: A Garter!
Rendezvous, our winter festival that celebrated it's 50th anniversary this year! It was a ton of fun, filled with wacky contests (chain saw chuck, one dog pull, flour packing, axe throw, dog howling, etc), beautiful snow scultpures, Rendezvous Queen and Sourdough Sam, and the Keystone Cops locking up any man who doesn't have a beard and woman who doesn't have a garter. It's dangerous business, running around Rendezvous unprepared.
Anywho, this meant that I needed a garter, and quick. I nearly bought one at our local fabric shop, but they were just too small for my *ahem* slightly larger than average (I guess) thighs. They wouldn't fit! So I bought some lace and ribbon, and made my own.
here. It was fun to get into the spirit of Rendezvous and avoid some jailtime (the boyfriend would probably abandon me, the jerk). I have some lofty plans for next year though.
And honestly, based on one of her recent posts and many others on her blog, Leila from Three Dresses Project is going to be a huge inspiration on that project!
Thank you all for being so inspiring, be it from blogging your sewing adventures, reviewing patterns on Pattern Review, or simply by being so awesome in your comments and suggestions here and elsewhere. You're all what makes this sewing community so (sew?) spectacular!
