March Craftiness was a Success!
Well, the National Month of Craft is over and i have to admit i did a lot of things i may not normally have had the motivation to do. I did not complete the damn quilt, but i will! J has promised to help with the little sewing we have to do before i can do the border and so forth.I also have to finish that restructured skirt from a party dress but i will, oh i will!
Pictured here is my latest work: I had an old sweater that i used to love that don't anymore - it's big, not very fun, and i've had it for at least 10 years, worn only for the first 6. I love the idea of reusing things that i have - good for the environment and good for my wallet. So, with the inspiring work of books like Generation T and a line called Precocious, here is my version of a restructured sweater. I'm still learning how to sew clothes (aprons and purses don't have to fit a curvy body!), so i will need to learn how to make things fit, but overall i'm happy with this - my own design and i didn't have to buy anything for it - also a great thing! I think i'll devote April to crafts that i already started and/or have supplies for, to be in line with Use What you Have Month!. What a great idea!
