I meant to catch up on things that HAD to be finished ..... but I got a little distracted!
One of the challenges I set myself this year was joining Whipstitchers "Sewing Bucket List" of things to sew in 2015. Number 1 was "something for the sewing room". I made a great little tool caddy which I will get around to blogging about before too long!!! The second item on the list was "something for HIM". I knew exactly what I wanted to make and I had this great mustache fabric in my stash which was perfect. Another challenge this year is to try and use my fabric stash first.
Boxer shorts for the boys ... Well first I wanted to make a pair for my husband as he's always worn ones I've made. I have a great pattern I've had for years and I've lost track of how many shorts I've made. The pattern is from size 4 years to XXL - so it's been versatile!
I couldn't make for them and leave the youngest son out ...so....
I also made a couple of little spool blocks and turned them into mug rugs.
Just have the binding to do to finish them off.
It's been a very hot, humid Australia Day for us today. No air con meant for a very sticky, sweaty day of sewing. I hope you had a great day and managed to stay cooler than I did. We finished off the day with a very "Aussie" dinner. Nice and quick and tasty but it also meant I got back into the sewing quicker!
Hope you had a great day!
