Flowers, food, and underwear
Mini-daffodils outside my house, in bloom!
Chicken Noodle Soup from Cooking Light. Soooo good! Fresh parsley, yum! Whole wheat pasta. Celery, carrots, rotisserie chicken, organic chicken broth, onions, pepper.
And now for the sewing...
Princeton Environmental Film Festival (PEFF) Organic cotton t-shirt, before
and after (made them tonight)
I just love them!
Made these last night. I used a piece of ribbon on the front like a 'tag', like 'branded' underwear. It's brown fabric with pink elastic.
Anyone have suggestions on where to get fabric labels? I don't mean personalized ones, ones with different words on them, that I could sew on to the front of underwear. Noile suggested etsy; I hadn't thought of that!
This was my first foray into "bikini style" underwear. The others I've made in the past are more "boy short" style.
The elastic is from Sew Sassy. The PEFF ones are "champagne" elastic and the brown ones have pink elastic.
The tutorial is, as always, Antoinette's fantastic "make your own undies" tutorial.
I'm on an underwear making roll. More to come for sure, especially using the zebra striped fold over elastic I got. MushyWear would approve. I would have made uw using the zebra striped tonight but I didn't have any black knit fabric of suitable weight. The black t-shirt I planned to use was too small. :(
I really should be getting to bed. I keep running out of time on the weekends. And I have to keep reminding myself, going to bed early is a gift to give to myself, like eating better.
Good night! Be well!
