KCW Day 1
Was yesterday. Yep. Since I did my "hour" late last night, and probably will again tonight, I'll just post it all a day behind. Ish.
Last week, I cut out the pattern pieces that I wanted to use. The Prepster Pullover got printed once, traced and cut twice. For the record, I hate using multiple sheets of paper taped together, so I just transfer the bigger pieces onto wrapping paper. So, there was a pair of patterns, 18M and 2T, waiting. I washed the fabric last week, too, and folded it neatly.
Last night, I cleared off the kitchen table, anticipated probable toddler incursions, got cat interference instead, and went to work. It took longer than an hour, but I traced and cut out both shirts. Tonight, a couple of interfacing pieces need tracing and cutting, and I'm hoping to make some headway on basic assembly. I still don't have buttons, and won't for a week or three, so these'll just be "finished."
If I can get these done quick enough, I'll try for a Beachy Boatneck next using some fantastic knit fabric from Girl Charlee. (Which I totally package stalked three times a day until it was finally in my greedy grubbies.) After that, the queue shows board shorts for both kiddos, and something else that I don't want to give away just yet. It should be fun!
