So I went to Denver for the long weekend to visit the sis and I picked up something really cool. A new craft. Sewing, people! (It totally beats a "I went to Denver and all I got was this lousy shirt" tee.)
Before this weekend, I never sewed a stitch. Things like bobbins and needles moving really fast around my fingers kind of put me off to the idea. But lately Erin has embraced the whole craft. And since I can't stand being left out, I decided to give the whole thing a go.
So let's take a journey. One where a complete sewer novice person learns to sew the cutest pair of length-appropriate lounge pants for her six foot frame. Seriously. The cutest.
So first there is the shopping...
The cutting of pattern pieces...
And, after a couple of hours, the lounging.
You may be thinking, "Kara, your lounge pants are darling. But they sure look lonely." No worries. Erin made them a little friend.
Russian dolls and little fawns make the best of friends. Just like sisters.
You would think making the perfect pair of length-appropriate lounge pants would be enough sewing for one weekend. You obviously don't know us very well. Stay tuned...
