My Creative Space

Do you ever have one of those weeks where your seam ripper is your best friend? That's how my week has been in the sewing department. There were shorts made and ripped out more times than I want to count, unsuccessful underwear making, and experimental free motion quilting. This all adds up to a couple dents in the old ego. Luckily, I have a very supportive husband who encourages me to keep going, keep learning and keep trying.
Some much needed quilting practice.
I "tried" to make some underwear for my overly skinny son. If anyone knows of a boys underwear pattern please let me know. The vintage girls one did not do the trick.

Please check out kootoyoo for some more great creative spaces!

I'm on intimate terms with my seam ripper! On the up side, your crochet roll in the previous post is BEAUTIFUL - definitely make some to sell!

I use my seam ripper a lot and when I am having one of those days I just HAVE to put the sewing away as it goes from bad to worse!!!!!!!!

Now if that's practice... well what's the real thing like?! It looks absolutely perfect. I love it!

There's nothing wrong with a little seam ripping! Those knickers look like they have so much potential. Boo for things not being quite right!

Yep, I totally have those seam ripper days (or weeks!)

This week I made as well some undies for myself, anyway, I "copy" on paper a pair of mine and then I cut them on cotton and sew them.For me it was easier than using a pattern, because I was sure they were fitting.

Lovely quilting going on there. I quite often give my seam ripper the evil eye!

Kirsty said...

Yes, the seam ripper & I are firm friends.

Can I suggest you hack into a pair of his current undies that fit him well & draft the pattern from that?
