I woke up feeling so blah today. I had a sore throat and sinus congestion... Too much snow time? Maybe... If so, it was worth it. I took a very long nap and yet here I am still sleepy. I guess my body needs rest. I have been popping Vit C like it's candy. Thankfully I feel better, just not 100% yet.
I wanted to show you the fleece jacket I mentioned a few posts ago. I finished it over the weekend.
The pattern is Simplicity A1738, sew simple jacket.
I bought it on a whim when I passed it in WalMart the other day. I figured since the pattern cost 99cents and it was simple I shouldn't have any trouble. Plus it would be good practice for tops. I was suprised how confused I was with some of the "simple" steps. It could have been that I always work on things late so maybe my mind was mush when I was struggling. Or it could just have been not "sew simple". Anyone else tried this pattern before?
It came out fine in the end and when I make it again I won't have any struggles, I'm sure. I guess I just expected it to be a super fast and easy project and it took a bit more thinking than I planned.
I love the jacket. I had the pink zebra fleece in my stash from a bargain bin some time ago. I bought some black fleece and really like how it all came together.
I want to add a few large buttons or snaps to be able to cozy it up a bit more on the days when it's too cold to just throw it on. I am holding it closed in the bottom right picture to show how I want that to happen. We will see if and when I actually get to doing that...
I did stash inventory last night and was sure to snap pics to share here for two reasons: 1) so you can call TLC and tell them to send over the production crew from hoarders along with a therapist and 2) so i can refer to the post when I want to make something and can't remember what I actually have in my fabric closet hahaha. I was suprised at how much I had forgotten I had and how much I didn't realize I had so much of.
It's off to be now for me! Hoping to rest up and wake up feeling tip top.
