I whipped up these pants yesterday!! I really like them and they fit wonderfully…except the waist is a tad too tight but I know what to do about that! ha! Just a few pounds ;)
Here it is, drum roll please!!!!
This is where I cut them out, on top of my dining room table.(got to use it for something) Pattern is my own that I designed to fit me.
Here is all my patterns cut out. The black, white and grey fabric on top right is my next project waiting to be sewed!! You’ll have to wait and see what it is!!!! Maybe a bit corny! hehehe
Sewing it up with my wonderful Husqvarna Viking Designer 1!! Back crotch
And now the finished product,,,,, tada!
Me and my gui-tar
And now I have a new pair of pants to wear!! Yay for me because I really need more casual pants!!!
Now that I have made these pants it gave me the “fever” to make more pants!!! I have all these discontinued sample fabric books from my custom made drapery business and I thought I wonder if I could use it and piece them all together to make a big piece of fabric and then make pants from it….and so that is what I am doing now. Piecing them together one by one. Hopefully it won’t take to long to put it together as I don’t have a long attention span when it comes to making things!
It’s going to be some wild crazy pants that’s all I know!!! I may never even wear them in public although you’ll get the …uhm…. privilege to see them!!! lol
I’ve also made a few other things coming up later.
P.S. On a sadder note, some of you know that my daughter Cara had a miscarriage :( (So appreciate all the prayers and kind words we received!!!) and so this changes my plans AGAIN. I had been working on a cute baby quilt but now I don’t seem to have the desire to work on it right now and so I may put it aside for a while and finish it later. It is really pretty colors of bright teal, white, browns and yellows. Perfect for a boy or a girl.
The episode with Cara
I have to tell you this experience I just went through.
When Cara told me that she was going for her first ultra-sound she was so excited but she had been a bit worried saying what if I go and they tell me there is no baby there (she had three pregnancy test that said she was!) or what if they say there are six!! I explained to her that it is normal to feel that way in the early months and everything is probably fine but just to make sure, I prayed to God that she would come back home and call me with exciting news that she had seen the baby and saw it’s heart beat and that she would be soooo happy.
