Slow Sewing

I am officially in vacation mode. Taylor is out of school until next year and we’ve already visited family for the holidays (and done gift exchanges) so my Christmas sewing is finished (I have a few things I’d like to make, but they can wait until later if I can’t get to them). Consequently, sewing around here is going slow… the most I’ve accomplished in washing all the shirts for this scarf, making a template (I figured if I was cutting out a lot of shirts an 11×11 template was the way to go), and cutting out the squares for sewing. I’ve decided that if I make one for myself I may make a skinnier version (possibly cutting 6×6 inch squares) using children’s shirts – that way you keep the entire design of the shirt intact, but have a thinner look to the wrap…. sounds like a good project for the new year!
