The holidays are looming, and I'm trying to be frugal. I convinced myself that making V's clothing for the winter would be cheaper than buying it (when in reality I know that any trip to the fabric store might be a disaster for my budget).
I hit the sewing machine with wild abandon to make a red sweatshirt.
The hood is lined with Mr. Dork's (free) old golf shirt. The jersey loop at the neck may be one of my less brilliant ideas as it's stretching out of shape already.
I'm intrigued by the way Ashley at Lil Blue Boo always serges on the outside of her knit garments. Only I think Ashley gets her seams straighter than mine.
I hope V likes red because way back in February I bought four yards of this knit. I might have been planning a lovely braided rug...
But I'm down a yard now.
