Here is the hem I sewed today that finishes Kelly's dress. I used a narrow zig-zag and a rolled hem foot and I am really happy with the result. It didn't like going over seams, so I sewed the hem by hand at the side seams and center back seam.
And I continued on with Daniel's shirt. I made the pattern by copying from a favorite shirt of his. I was actually going to use a real pattern (you know, store-bought) and use the tracing as a guideline for size. But the mens BWOF shirt patterns are waaaaaay too big for him, so I went ahead and drafted the whole thing out. Working with pencil and paper and arithmetic seemed appropriate for a Daniel gift (he is an engineering student, he would like having arithmetic in his clothing, I think)
I am so loving this wool flannel. Just a nice fabric to work with.
I didn't sew anything for Laura, I just figure she probably doesn't have a lot of space for goofy Home Dec projects despite how much I love sewing weird things for her. And she knows I'll sew her whatever she wants anytime, anyway. I'll mail off her boxes tomorrow. It is so weird not having her here for the holidays!! And when I see her pics on Flickr, I just thing, "whoa Korea is a foreign country!"
But I just remember how much fun we had last summer and I look forward to travelling in the spring to see Asia with her. That will be amazing. I hope I can deal! Seems a little skeery to me!
And with that bit of aimless rambling, I sign off.
