One pair of Thuja Socks, finally completed after a year of being lost in the queue.
One pair of Pajama pants with a cool vintage baseball print for my father-in-law’s birthday (I don’t think they read this!). Clearly I am all about the pajama pants since the sewing class. I may need to branch out into something else…
And a partridge in a pear tree. Actually it’s Mercy in front of the other gift I made my father-in-law, a fleece blanket. No pattern, just wingin’ it. I found this fabric that suited him perfectly with the golf and fishing images and I backed it with a chocolate brown fleece. I don’t know all the technical terms of what I did, but I basically sewed it like a pillow, turned it right side out, stiched up the little hole in the seam, and THEN re-stitched along the entire ting, creating a more professional look, or so my hubby says.
SO… I have completed one of my 2007 goals by finishing the socks, two checks for doing more handmade gifts, and 3 checks to date for having 3 sewing FO’s by the end of January. I’d say it’s been a pretty productive 1/24 of the year.
