I picked up this pattern a little while ago and have been anxious to try it out.
After MUCH debate and near-tantrum throwing while shopping for fabric, some finally was chosen.
Into the wash it went! After that it was ready to be cut out. Technically it was after the pre-wash, a jog, and taking the dogs to the park hoping to wear them out enough that I could work in peace. So with the dogs out of the way (napping in their crates, not all mafia style) it was time for my least favorite part of the sewing experience: laying out and cutting out the pattern.
Incidentally, cutting out the fabric is the absolute favorite part of sewing for the cats.
Then, like rubbing salt into a wound, the whole thing is completely lined. So I have to cut it out all over again in different, light-weight, slippery fabric!
After much scooting about on the floor and pinning and snipping and cursing, everything was cut out. By the time I got everything cut out I was pretty much sick of looking at it so it was an ideal place to stop for the night. At least next time when I get started I’ll be jumping right into the good stuff.
Now the trick is to make time to work on it to be sure its done to wear by Saturday. I think I can do it. Here’s hoping for no surprises and minimal animal interference.
