    Mission Accomplished

    So here are the results of last weekend’s labor. I made three skirts, one of which still needs to be hemmed. Am I the only one who absolutley HATES to hem?

I made a pleat in the front and a dart in the back instead. I also left off the zipper and made the waist elastic, because I kind of suck at zippers and all I had on hand were 14″ black ones.…

    This Weekend’s Agenda

    This weekend I plan to… …make some skirts (with large doofy bow of course)… Rock out in my snazzy new boots… …and probably listen to some Queen. Sounds like a good weekend to me.

I have a big stash and I think these little guys are a good way to use up smaller bits. They’re only about 7″ tall (not including ears) so they don’t take much fabric and they’re wee enough to carry around. I actually carried one around in my purse…
