MicroBlog Monday: I Made It

I have been sewing since I was a young child. I love sewing for the relaxing and problem solving aspects, but also for the creating things with my hands aspect and finished product. I don’t get enough time to sew for fun, for myself or my kid or friends, and often feel like I am craving that creative space and time.

I’ve been quite stressed out dealing with potential diagnoses and the last project I made was a tad stressful in the form of a tester and a memory bear for a friend after her dad died. So, I needed some stress relief sewing!

I saw this great tie dye shirt at a thrift store recently and knew Wallace needed a new pair of grow with me acro-pants. It took a while to find the time in my days, but I’m quite pleased with them, and so is Wallace.

    So cute! Did you use a pattern or just wing it?

    The pants part I just wing it. I probably saw a tutorial post once. It can be good to have a pare of leggings to use as a guide, but go bigger. I start with the shirt inside out, smoothed out, then fold it in half so I make sure it’s symmetrical. The cuffs I used pieces from a pattern, but his last pair I just put a little extra room at the top, folded it down, and strung thin elastic in.
