What I’ve Been Working On This Week
I feel like I haven’t gotten much accomplished this week because I haven’t tackled any big projects. I’ve started a series of things though. But finished almost nothing.
Do you ever do that to yourself?
I made a few bows to sell at the diner. They’re going really fast up there.

I found a pattern and instructions on www.fleecefun.com, and made a little hat for Bella’s dolls. I wanted to see if it was within my realm of capability. I used scrap fabric. ( SpongeBob SquarePants actually.) It came out okay.
I’m wondering if I can make one (pirate style) and sew a barrette on bottom for Bella’s costume. It would be a hat shaped hair bow. A hair bow hat. A non bow hat barrette. Whatever.

I’m going to let Krystal buy the boys hats. I’m done.

Speaking of hubs, I sketched his costume out. I haven’t showed him yet, but I hope it’s what he’s going for.
I’m making the shirt using this pattern:
I’ll give a pattern review when I’m done.
So I’ll keep you updated on my
