Now that my Duro dress is complete, the laundry has been washed and put away (it was litterally spilling out of the laundry basket and onto the floor in a very large mound), 4 pairs of pants have been hemmed (and I have mastered my blind hem foot), and the refrigerator is stocked – what’s a girl to do? Start another project of course!
This time I am looking to start something that might get finished up fairly quickly (I like those instant gratification garments every now and then) so I’ve opted to try one of Simplicity’s new patterns, 4020 – the kimono-esque top. And I decided to use my new geisha onionskin for the fabric (I’m keeping it all in a theme today).
I also forgot to mention that my newest issue of Patrones arrived last week! After spending some time thumbing through it, I’ve decided that this issue is definately better in person than what it is on the web. One of the items that ranks high on my must make list is this little number from Paz Torras:
Of course, I can’t just stop at planning these projects. No, I also have a strong desire to make some plushies too – and I found the perfect book, Aranzi Aronzo’s Jersey Nuigurumi to make some. Some of the doll shapes remind me of Cuddly Rigor Mortis plush items. Either I must own one of her plushies or make one like hers and this book might help me to do it!
