Silas has new pants! I resolved to clear off the sewing machine from all the junk that it's collected over the past months and make something. When I was cleaning out my dresser and found this old shirt of mine that I haven't worn in six years, I knew what that something would be.
I followed the tutorial in The Creative Family. I've wanted to do this project ever since I first heard about it years ago and I have to say, I find myself inspired. The results were so good and virtually instantaneous; it only took me 15 minutes and half that time was spent chasing Silas around. This is the kind of sewing that I can get into right now: useful, fun, and quick enough that I can do it while Silas is awake and engaged in an activity. Love.
