Change Of Plans

Call me lazy, but I have no desire to change the thread in my serger to work on my Jalie Scarf Collar Top. So, instead, I decided to start a ‘new project’…. Jalie 2918; the men’s shirts (I figure at least I’m sticking with the same company). I traced the smallest size off for Easton and dug through the stash to find some fabulous fabric. I opted for a Volcom cotton t-shirt knit and the gray thermal knit that I recently picked up (you can find all the information for this project on the sidebar). I did find that the thermal shrank quite a bit after washing it and I think that it may have lost some of it’s stretch. Consequently, I was just barely able to squeeze out enough fabric to cut out a long sleeve.
I’ve while I was cutting out material, I also caught up on Hot Pattern’s latest YouTube video(s) that discusses their handbag patterns. I own two (not counting the free Nairobi bag they had up awhile ago) and still have yet to make one. These definitely have gotten me excited about these again and may have finally given me a push to start one, soon! After watching the video, I’m leaning toward the Metropolitan Homage Tote with a metallic bronze leather I picked up from Fabric Mart. EEE! I better get sewing, my list is really starting to grow. By the way, what is everyone else working on?

    I’m working on stuff for my son too. KS 3016(?) which is a set of footed pj’s. I think I need that pattern though, so that I can make shirts for both of the men in my life. 😉

    Wait….you CHANGE your serger thread? I usually use the same cones regardless of the project. As long as no one else is going to see it or the project isn’t see-thru, I don’t see a reason to. 😀

    I wouldn’t call not wanting to change the thread on your serger lazy at all. I would call it efficient and a good steward of your time. If you added up how much time it took to change the thread on your serger say 20 times it would probably be about an hour. You could do most of your sewing on a simple t shirt in that amount of time.

    Not too much sewing going on right now, it’s Girl Scout Cookie time so we’re busy selling! I do have another hoodies skirt apron in the works and next up are sleep pants for my husband. Looking forward to seeing the shirts for your little guy.
