Well, week 2 of Sponky's crafty holiday was as productive as week 1. Summer wardrobe was the main focus of this week and I was able to complete:
- 2 drawstring skirts (here and here). These are basically big sacks that I can get over my hips, with a drawstring made of the same material. Very quick and easy and good for days when I am lazying around the house or at the beach
- 2 wrap-around shirts (here and here). These are made with McCalls pattern 4384, altered to be slightly longer in the waist to account for the fact I am not 5 foot 7. I originally thought the ties at the front where too fat, but they are actually a good width when you go to tie them. I also like the gathering on the fron yoke (you may or may not be able to see it in the pictures. Will have to see how the V neck goes in real life!
- I have also ALMOST completed 3 small quilts (well, tiny quilts) to go on my wall (made to document some of the materials I have used in existing quilts). These need binding (and I can't find an 18mm binding maker) so will post some shots when I get to these.
