This is the face of someone who wants to bash their sewing machine.
Also, Me Made March Day 20: McCalls 5241 cardi warp again.
Let's just say things haven't quite been working out for me in the sewing room this week. I fully expected to have a finished project to blog about this weekend, but alas- that is not the case. In fact, I think I did more damage today by trying to finish something than if I had not sewn at all.
This is what my sewing room currently looks like. I did cover those giant blocks of furniture foam- and they look terrible. I'm working on plan b. I think it may be best to leave upholstery jobs to the professionals.
I bet you're thinking that this looks nice.
Let's zoom in a little.
I guess I don't know my own strength. I actually have the dullest seam ripper in the world. I'm amazed that it tore through the end stitches.
And last but not least, I bought the most beautiful pale aqua eyelet to make a spring dress. I also bought a bright red and bright orange cotton lawn for a lining. I couldn't decide between the two. Then, I threw them all in the wash together like an idiot.
I'm not ready to give up on the eyelet yet. I think I may try to over dye it a deeper turquoise. I'm hoping it will cover up the red and orange stains. Does anyone know if this will work? Or have any other suggestions?
In Me Made March news:
Day fourteen: Striped Simplicity 2865 again.
Day fifteen: Knit Kasia
My shoes are now two different colors because I spilled ceramic glaze on one.
Day sixteen: A fleece coat I've never written about, McCalls 5714. I made it a long time ago, early on in my sewing adventures. I wear it often, though the interfacing I used feels like cardboard.
Day seventeen: Me made pj pants
I caught a delightful 24 hour bug, I'm sure from a kid at school, and stayed home from work. And, no, I did not feel like taking a photo of myself.
Day eighteen: My pintuck tunic, Simplicity 2365
Day nineteen: Simplicity 3833 made from a double knit.
This was the first public outing for this dress even though I made it a while back. I didn't realize how much I liked it.
Wishing everyone a great week!
