So naturally, I grabbed the chance to do some sewing. I started on a skirt, but ran out of white thread in the middle of a storm. So I started another project - until I ran out of black thread and the stores weren't open. And a few projects later I sat there with a half-finished skirt, some corset-belt thingies and pieces for three vests, unable to continue on anything. Aughhh.
Luckily I remembered seeing this rag quilt. Since it's a rag quilt, it doesn't really matter what fabric or thread I use, and I found use for scrap fabric and some of the fabric I've held onto for far too long without having any tangible plans on what to do with it. (While I made a pillow from most of it, I had a few scraps from the Hobbit-inspired morning gown I started last year.)
My teachers (both professional seamstresses) would probably have had something to say about these raw edges. Hopefully it'll look better after washing and fraying.
|For once, the wrong side looks pretty.|
It's half-finished now and I'm hoping to finish it next time I'm home. I've sworn to myself that this will not turn into one of those projects I start when I'm at home and then forget/throw away/take apart/redesign/give away next time I'm back. (So if you could keep an eye on me during Easter so that I can't be sneaky and do any of those things, that would be very much appreciated.)
