It could because I'm trying to write this while I'm watching Gus walks into a bank...one of my favorite Psych episodes.
The sewing project that I am actually very fond of~
We had an umbrella that was a beautiful shade of green. But it broke.
Being an inspired and brilliant person, I thought, "Hey! This fabric would make a great skirt!"
Weeeeell...to be honest, Treskie was the one that said, "Hey! Amy, this would make a great skirt!" I'm always one to give credit where credit is due.
The umbrella was very large. Large enough to make two skirts. Here's the sections that I had already seam ripped into the proper proportions.
My greatest friends during this project.
So here's just some of the pictures of the process.
That extra material is what I used for the waistband and pockets.
The hem was tricky. But I did it! *Grin*
"Look at how much fun I'm having!"
Sewing isn't really one of my favorite things. I do a project here and there, but mostly I get burned out quickly when I sit at the machine. *Grin* But sometimes its just worth it.
My little Mummy is a great sport whenever I get the urge, and she's ever so helpful. She is a really good seamstress and helps me figure out the hard parts. Sure,she laughs at my mistakes, and she threatens to poke me with the pins as she helps fit the pockets and such, but she really is the best. :)
And for the record, she's never really stuck me with a pin.
I love the skirt. It's basically a hiking skirt-it's light, it's durable and it's perfect. I want to make another skirt with the other half of the umbrella. Tweak a few things...use a better zipper than the one I put on mine...and maybe give it to Treskie. I don't know. It was her idea after all.
Now I sound like Shawn. I've definitely been watching too much Psych.
I will leave you with this weirdness. And also this song.
I just discovered Peter Hollens on youtube and you all should totally check out his music. It's beautiful! And I'm not usually a fan of 'Shenandoah.'
