I threw this little bunch of roses together for a bridal shower I went to a couple of nights ago. Spaghetti sauce jar with some pretty paper and some roses from my garden. Super easy and cheep little gift. I also made a couple of pair of earrings that I forgot to take pictures of. Another quick and easy gift. The party was fun and a little crazier than expected, seeing that the Bride-to-be is in her 50’s.
I spent most of today cutting out some fabric to make a few new shirts. A few Simplicity 3835’s and the Summer Blouse from Weekend Sewing. I was half way through the summer blouse but had to stop for fear of blowing my top. First, I had a hard time fitting all the pieces on the fabric (has anyone else had this problem?). I used the called for amount, but the sleeves are huge and just wouldn’t fit. Finally, I ended up making short sleeves. Then, when I joined the front and back, it was way to wide and too short. So now I’m back at the drawing board to figure out how to save my pretty sea foam colored, embroidered fabric. Don’t get me wrong. The book is beautiful and very well done. I just think I need a good nights sleep so I can figure it out in the morning.
