And so the tee shirt extravaganza continues... Seriously, I really want a serger right now! All these tee shirts would have just flown together. I think I'm coming to the end of my patience with them though. I'm ready to sew something interesting. The timing is good, since my Jalie Stretch Jeans pattern arrived yesterday and Beth let me borrow some soil separator to trace them. They're already cut out... But I have to finish the tee shirts first!! I saved these little cuties for the last, since they are the most detailed and therefore more likely to hold my interest. These are also the last few things from my November sewing goals. Whew! It's only half way through December, so I don't think that's half bad.
This post shall also serve as a reminder to myself to never ever ever buy jersey at Hobby Lobby again. Seriously, it is the worst quality ever. I know this, and yet, I buy more. Their prints are so freaking cute.
As a tracing paper update, Mitch did manage to acquire a roll of exam table paper from his clinic for me. If he hadn't I was ready to hit CVS for some tissue paper. The exam paper is quite good! I traced a pinafore for Myra and it worked well. It is sheer enough to see through when tracing, but sturdy enough that the Sharpie I was using didn't bleed through to the magazine underneath. Since it doesn't drape at all, I don't think I'll use it much when I need to make fit adjustments, but it will be perfect for sewing for the kids. Have you ever tried to tissue fit a 3 year old boy? Hah! Fed Ex assures me that my soil separator (which I ordered from True Value hardware) is in Arizona and should be here soon, so I'll be back to my old tricks soon enough!
