in these recent weeks ive been sewing up a storm, much more than i crochet or knit anymore. mostly because i dont have any space anymore for little things (or big things like that giant caterpillar) and i dont need any more hats, and i dont feel up to spending tons and tons of time on any projects like a coat or a dress. so im sewing, sewing things to wear, like the pinafore and the skirt i made, but yesterday i made a pair of undies that i cant get on, made from an old bathing suit pattern that required a zipper. which i never would have guessed a bathing suit would have, so i skipped over the "notions you'll need" part. today i hemmed and tried really hard to fix up my flying monkey- esque coat, to shorten it and keep the hem looking really neat, but it puckered like hell and my hand was very unsteady. i ironed as many of the puckers out as i could, and ill go looking for some sort of rick-rack to go over the stitches, mabye making it look more like a flying monkey coat than ever before. and the inside of the coat is a whole 'nother story of ugliness and sloppiness. until then, im going to be working on those pieces i mentioned earlier today. that dress looked significantly brighter, whiter, eighties-er and polyester-er after a wash, so ill tea-dye it i think.
some new shoes i bought today and forgot about.
tomorrow im heading down to oceanside with cousin sonja for some swapmeet shopping.
