I finally made the trip to the fabric store after work today to exchange the knitting needles and purchase sewing machine needles to finish my skirt, although when finally getting home, I did not feel like doing it. It’s difficult coming home from work with the desire to work on my knitting and sewing. In fact, it’s usually the reason why I do my sewing projects on the weekends, and knitting I do just about anywhere such commuting to and from work (whenever I have some elbow room). What I that said, while walking to the train to come home, I forgot to get some bobbins for the sewing machine (can never enough bobbins) and just couldn’t go back.
I am going to admit to purchasing two more patterns from Simplicity this past weekend. One is a wardrobe coordinates patterns that I could make a pants, skirt, and t-shirt from knit fabric. I need knits in my wardrobe for after work and weekend wear. In fact, I can considered the pattern (New Look 6762) the alternative sweat suit. This reminds me while writing the previous sentence that I am going to need needles for knits. I haven’t worked with knits yet, but the pattern seems like a good introduction to work with the fabric. The other pattern (Simplicity 3566) which I think is a great wardrobe because it has a dress, jacket, skirt, pants, and top to coordinate with other pieces in the wardrobe. I want to sew all of the pieces to this pattern and I want to do the pants in a light weight tweed (I like tweed). I also get excited about color like finding purple fabric to make the dress or skirt, or a brown tweed for the pants and skirts (brown and purple goes together). The patterns just gives me so many ideas and interruptions. Perhaps it was a good idea to write a blog entry tonight to get me inspired and invigorated for the rest of the week. What gets you inspired?
