Sulking and Sewing

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.

    I love this fabric. It is so perfect for a peasant top, and Mira’s coloring, too!

    I guess maybe I should be late more often.

    Such a cute little top and that fabric is so pretty. Isn’t it a good feeling to start and finish something in one sitting. I think you totally deserve a visit to Joann’s now!

    Very cute shirt. I’m impressed this was a no pattern shirt. Looks amazing!

    I’d say sulking works very well! Very cute top. I can sew your little sweetie approves too.

    The only thing cuter than that shirt is the little cutie in it! What a wonderful finish, even if it was inspired by sulking!!!

    That’s a perfect way to handle the disappointment! Very productive channeling of it. 🙂 The top is cute.
