I tried making a new Jalie top that was such a disaster I didn't even hem it to give to Goodwill. Straight to the trash. Sigh.
But then I made a bag that turned out super cute.
One of the ladies at The Husband's office asked me to make it for her after she saw the cuteness of the Secret Santa treats. She had pictures of a bag she liked and I basically made up the pattern to get the shape she wanted. She choose these fabrics from my stash. It isn't my style, but it turned out nice and she loved it.
This weekend I am determined to make some item of clothing for myself that I don't hate. Anything. I think I am going to make another of the Jalie sweetheart tops to get me out of the hate cycle. It is such a distinctive style that I don't want to make TOO many of them, but I do love it and I think it might be just what I need to bring back the love. Plus it is something that I can have in time to wear dancing on Saturday night!
I may be getting a surprise this weekend.....A sewing related surprise....but I am not going to post about it until it is actually in my hot little hands. Ha!
Parting shot: You know it is cold when the boys consent to cuddle with new girl.
