Back in November when I showed Gracie’s Buffalo Gals Lookbook I didn’t show all the other pieces that I had made that I didn’t feel like “fit” with the collection. This is one of them. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the leggings or that I accidentally made them 10 sizes to small. I just didn’t like how they looked with the other items I had made. So Grace got to wear them and didn’t even have to get her picture taken in them…until the other day when we were all inside for the afternoon recovering from our illnesses.
It seems like around this time of year every year the Wal-Mart I live near clearances out a whole bunch of super random fabrics. They fill up the aisle with tables and stick up a sign that says $1 a yard and I always end up buying some.
And these pants and beanie were made out of the world’s weirdest knit that I bought there a year or so ago. The fabric is really stretchy and silky smooth on one side and puffy, raggedy, and textured on the other. It’s random but apparently comfortable. If these pants are clean Grace is wearing them….even is she doesn’t feel well.
We are all finally getting better and starting to feel like we might survive…now I just need to catch back up on the laundry and housework and we’ll be back on track.
(And I hope that happens soon because my list of things I’m wanting to make is 3 pages long! And I’ve got a pile of that $1 fabric to try out new patterns on. Now, to just to find some time alone with my sewing machine…)
