With Taylor being sick, I’ve been trying to find lots of quiet activities that I can do and that I can stop midstream without getting too sidetracked. I figured that starting a major project wasn’t the best idea, so I decided to do the mundane task of tracing patterns.
I managed to trace two Kwik Sew patterns – 3426 (the babydoll style lingere pattern) and 3497 (3 different tanks). I traced off an extra small in each of these patterns, going off my bust measurements. However, I think that I should have really traced a small in the tank conidering that my waist size falls more in that range. I guess I’ll be able to tell better after I have a chance to sew it up.
I also cut out the pattern for Simplicity 3956. I picked up the fabric quite awhile ago, but still need to cut into it. I’m also debating on whether to do a serged, rolled hem or a narrow hem along the edges. Any thoughts?
Lastly, I printed off, taped together, and cut the pattern for the Frankenteddy swap (if you’re interested in doing a teddy bear for yourself, you can print off the pieces here). I intend on using the rainbow, embriodered batik that I picked up at Joann’s $1 sale – thankfully I picked up a lot of yardage, the finished bear is going to be HUGE!
