Thanksgiving is just days away, so what have I been working on? Native American vests. Lots and lots (30+) of vests for my son’s teacher (I made 2 kindergarten class worth). While the garment itself is incredibly simple what killed me is the ‘fringe’. My Shape-Flex ruler really sped things up, but I’m pretty sure that I could use a new rotary cutter blade because I could only cut through a few layers at a time. Whew! It should be worth all the work to see the kids decorate and celebrate together tomorrow in class!
On a completely unrelated note: Remember my Named Laurie top? My daughter spotted it the other day and tried it on… and it fit her fabulously. So while the top didn’t work for me, I’m happy to report that it will be worn and appreciated!
