The Happs

I have had a exciting month, hence the lack of blog posts.  However, I haven't stopped sewing!!

  • I wrote a "how to" paper for therapy about sewing an elastic waistband skirt
  • I made a accompanying video to go with my paper.  I am re-recording again to show marked improvements in my speech.
  • I completed my outpatient program at Pate!  It was incredibly bittersweet. I really miss going there every day.  I made goodie bags and hand-written cards for the staff there.
  • I made a skirt for a patient at Pate!  I just learned that she received and enjoyed her gift box!!
  • I made a muslin for another patient at Pate. She wanted the same skirt that I finished for another patient.  She wanted it in the same fabric.  Luckily, I had some leftover and only needed 1.25 yard.  We took the muslin for her to try on, and it fits perfectly!  Now, I need to make the skirt in the same fabric for her.
  • I made a video blog for Flywheel Sports.  I will post when they are going to share it!!!

McCall's M2818 - Misses' Tops, View D

I'm working on my first tank top.

McCall's M2818 Misses' Tops, View D (upper left)
Purpose: I wanted to make a top to accompany the skirt that I am making for my gift skirt.
Timeline:  I have spent 4 hours, split across several weekends.  I am making a muslin. The pattern instructions are quite simple.  But, the multi-size pattern is difficult to cut.  There is no timeline for this project.
