So Thursday morning I woke up early(okay 8:40) and went over to my friend’s house for some sewing. She’s a seamstress and I’m not the greatest at sewing so she helps me out a lot when I feel like making clothes. I’m not the greatest with clothes, once again it’s the reading of the pattern that often gets me really confused.
So anyway a long time ago, probably about three years ago now I made a curtain for my bedroom window out of old jean squares that my mom cut out of the jeans. So anyway I am terrible at measuring, and I learned this very quickly when I made this curtain and brought it home to only find the loops were too big and it was too long, about half too long.
I know it might not be that great looking curtain, but to tell you the truth I really like it and I really just wanted something to block the sun and light from coming into my window when I’m sleeping. I really think I was a mole in another life because when I want to sleep I can’t seem to fall asleep or don’t sleep well unless it is very dark in the room.
So since I had my sewing machine at my friend’s place I decided I would finally fix the curtain to the right size for my window.
It took a little time to seam rip everything(Forgot how much I hated using the seam ripper) And then all I did was cut the loops in half and took off one row across off the bottom, easy. 🙂
My friend also finished sewing my dress for me. I picked out a dress pattern a few months ago and she and I haven’t gotten together in awhile to work on it. I wanted to try making it myself, but the pattern was a little beyond me. So she did the sewing and I did some of the hand-sewing that needed to be done on it. It turned out really well I think, at least I like it, so I guess that’s all that matters.
Well, hope to do some kind of update sometime next week, till then happy crafting everyone. 🙂
