Clothes! And other things

I've had a bit of time on my hands recently, and I've decided to finish up a dress I started making this time last year. I don't have much work space at all... but here's what I was starting with.

This gather took me almost an hour to do. Not because gathers are hard, but because the sewing machine I'm using doesn't have a very big stitch, and so I wash pushing fabric along super tiny stitches... if that makes sense. 

This is a card I made for Chris. I did it in about 1 minute.

These are shorts I JUST made! Well, they were an old and favourite pair of jeans that I no longer wear because of a hole in the inner thigh. No longer wearable as jeans, they are completely wearable as shorts! And my gosh is it hot out today, I need shorts!

Also, there are people outside my window singing the word "Alouette" to the tune of Frère Jaques.


  1. Kat - I love reading your blog and looking at your photos. It makes me stop and breathe a little when things are busy, and it gets me excited about making things!

  2. I LOVE THAT FABRIC. Waa, someday I hope we both have time to kill so you can give me a sewing lesson!
