det her. Jeg har syet det før, og jeg synes det er så pænt.
Men der var ikke sådan enorme mængder stof, så jeg måtte folde og flytte og klippe en del ad gangen. Da jeg var færdig, så resterne sådan her ud. Der var ikke meget tilbage!
I wanted to sew during the weekend. And I did! The first big step was to cut up the pretty fabric. I bought everything they had in the store, about 3 yards, and I wasn't sure if I had enough. The pattern is this one. I made it before, and I really do love it.
There wasn't an ocean of fabric, so I had to fold and move and cut one bit at a time. Once I was done, the leftovers looked like this. Not much left!
As I was sitting there, sewing on Saturday, I put on some music. Ended out with "Magic Flute", and only far into the music I realized, that the bird catcher Papageno was perfect in every way.....
Jeg snød med knapperne - det er tredje top jeg laver i det mønster, og de to andre gange har jeg omhyggeligt siddet og syet for små knaphuller som knapperne blev syet fast igennem. Denne gang kom der knapper på uden knaphuller. Jeg tror ikke, nogen lægger mærke til det.
Nå. Det var SJOVT at sy! Har masser af stof, så jeg må lige holde gejsten oppe.
It ended out like this. Budgerigars EVERYWHERE! I am looking forward to wearing it, although it is a bit hot for it right now.
I cheated with the buttons - it is my third Esme top, and with the first 2, I was very well-behaved, sitting there, sewing buttonholes that were too small, and sewing the buttons on through the buttonholes. This time? I just sewed on the buttons without the buttonholes. I don't think anyone will notice.
Well. It was FUN to sew! I have so much fabric, so I just need to keep the spirit up!
