|Artfully posed by the wagon wheel - thanks for taking the photo Sally!|
Instead of starting the next sewing project, I decided I really should finish off the one that has been draped over my chair for ages. Nothing fancy, just a pair of pyjammie pants. I was just being a bit lazy about finishing them off. All that needed doing was the waistband and the hems.
I wanted to do the waistband a bit differently, using a ribbon instead of having lots of flannel folded over and ending up with bunchy bits that dig into my hips when I sleep on my side (in other words, all the time). And seeing as they are just for around the house, it didn't really matter that I was spending more time waffling on with Sally than attention to the straightness of the sewing...
There certainly wasn't much measuring going on, not even with the hems.
|The only ribbon I had wide enough was orange, so orange it was!|
The macbook case is still on the cards. I need to get some denim I think. But the other fabrics have been selected (naturals and reds in the end) and I think I'm definitely going to have to do some measuring for this project!
