Well Good Morning! And happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? Frit and I are hanging out with her sisters and mom tonight and tomorrow while the men are off hunting. We’ve got dinner at (our favorite) Sego Lily Cafe tonight and then a Zumba class, brunch, and an afternoon matinee planned for tomorrow. Methinks I’m going to fall in love with Zumba.
But anyhow! Welcome to any new visitors who found me through Good Things Utah. If you’re interested in having me make your child’s monster, just send me an email and I’ll get you more details. If you’re interested in watching any of my other segments for Good Things Utah, click here. And finally, all Halloween Trick-or-Treat bags will be on sale next week in my shop for $5. Just sign up on the mailing list (over there on the right, near the top) to get the discount code.
And now for my So Sew! Challenge Week 3 project. If you recall, the inspiration word was CIRCUS…. As I was thinking about what I wanted to make, I came across a vintage paper doll playbook, circa 1980, starring Raggedy Ann and Andy.
Inside it’s filled with all sorts of circus-y goodies and darling illustrations, but the page that caught my eye was the one with a red and white striped Big Top Circus Tent. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to sew.
And so … here’s my project. My “Under the Big Top Tank.”
I used a red & white striped polyester fabric and a simple McCalls pattern. As I began sewing I got a little worried it looked a little pirate-y, but I think the bow and biased neck binding help alleviate that.
Be sure to check out Melissa and Sandi‘s fantastic projects! And stop by the Flickr pool to see what other readers have been working on this week. And don’t forget to tune in on Monday for the new inspiration word and our final week of the So Sew! Challenge.
Have a fantastic weekend!
