Two new Halloween pillows. Made by me. (Taken with Instagram)

New doll.

Fffffuuuuuuuuuucccccccckkkkkkkkk.

Giant rip down the side, yup. Arm torn apart, yup. Hole at the bottom seam, yup. 

Second time in washing machine. There are several other holes due to super cheap fabric being super cheap. I’d rather not patch it since it is something I’ll have to continue to do, but little dude wants his robot so guess what I’ll be doing tonight.

Remember way back when I was planning on sewing a robot because my son learned how to say robot?

Me neither until a week or two ago when I found the pieces shoved in a box in my craft closet. I’m finally getting around to putting them together.

For the record, my son believes that gears are robot cookies. I don’t know how this happened, but it’s awesome and I will probably sew some up after the holiday.

Bow tie made for my son to wear at my sister’s wedding at the end of the month. I think I made it too big, but I’ll be putting his suit on him tomorrow since I have to take neck measurements for the strap, so we’ll see.

It takes about 30 minutes to cut and sew if you constantly have issues sewing or are easily distracted (I am guilty of both). Otherwise, it takes about 15 minutes.

I have been thinking a lot about my relationship with clothes. When I was in high school I was very into fashion. I had a part-time Starbucks budget, of course, so I wore a lot of weird things remade from my mom’s old clothes and thrift store salvages fixed up to approximate what was on trend. I looked odd most of the time, I’m sure, but clothes felt exciting and interesting to me, and I liked playing with them.

The problem with wanting to make a crazy cat lady pillow is that I have to wait for my crazy cat fabric to finish washing and drying, which is slightly annoying.

Sorry for the blurry photo, but I finished my 90 minute shirt! Only took 270 minutes!

Note: the fabric is extremely lightweight, so I should remind myself to wear an undershirt so my bra does not show through, like it kind of does in this photo.
