Me Made May: Day 9
I have a few more tricks up my sleeve, but I am trying to buy myself a little more time before I have to start repeating. So today my husband filled in for me on the Me Made May challenge. I did make the shirt, so in my book it's not technically cheating. I was trying to recall how long ago I made this shirt. I think it was about 5 years. I know that it was the first garment that I ever made and I remember having some issues. First, it was one of those patterns with a gazillion pieces. Also not exactly a beginner project. I know that the collar stand turned out a little strange, but hey, it looks great with a tie. I definitely learned how to use the button hole on my machine and also got to use the button sew on foot. These are two of my favorite sewing machine features to date. How I love the way my little bernina can make buttons a breeze.
I also worked on a couple of quilt blocks for the KC Scrappy Bee. Have a great week.
