I don’t have anything new to show you. I have started the embroidery on the baby dress, but it will take me ages. I think that I might have to break my vow already and start a few other projects to do at the same time. Maybe there isn’t a valid reason to finish one project before starting another – different projects meet different creative needs, so maybe it’s good to have a few different things on the go at once! Well, that will be my justification anyway.
I embroidered and constructed these pants for myself some time ago, following an idea in Inspirations magazine. The original outfit was pants and a top for a little girl. They did get quite a bit of wear, but aren’t really my style now. They look a bit too much like pyjamas (possibly because I did use a pyjama pattern to make them). Gee, it would have been a good idea to have ironed them before taking the photo . . .
They’ve been in the op-shop bag for a while, but somehow I just couldn’t bear to get rid of them – probably thinking of the time spent doing embroidery! Now I think that I will refashion them into something else.
Possibly a couple of simple tote bags? One from each leg? Using the rest of the fabric for lining and handles?
