I wanted to go to the quilt store today, but my husband got home too late for me to go. Like a mature adult, I holed up in my “office” for a few hours in protest. Out came this:
I bought the material from Joann’s on Sunday, and honestly it was hard to wait even this long to make something out of it.
I just made a simple peasant top. No pattern or instructions really. I simply laid one of my daughter’s tops down over the material and started cutting.
I didn’t even change the color of thread already on my machine. It almost matches the blue in the material. Almost.
It was quick and spontaneous, a very different kind of sewing than my usual method. But I enjoyed it, and I think the top — surprisingly enough — turned out okay.
I’m still going to the quilt store tomorrow, though.
