I’ve started messing around with corsets, and got a little excited about making stylized Disney corset costumes. I originally made a mock up corset with some left over grey fabric and pink thread which made me think of Dumbo. I haven’t seen Dumbo in a very long time, so I googled him, and realized he wears a little red and yellow collar thing.
So I went to Joanns to get some red and yellow fabric for my corset. I used McCall’s 4861 pattern A for this corset. I’m thinking I’ll make some grey and pink high waisted shorts to go with this. I decided to take pictures along the way as a makeshift tutorial.
Since my family is jewish, I don’t own a christmas stocking. This year, my boyfriend wanted me to hang a stocking on his family’s mantle, so he could fill it with presents. We went looking for a cute stocking, but couldn’t find anything. So I bought some fabric and made one. It only took about 10 minutes or less. Since it’s already christmas eve, I figured I’ll wait and embellish it more with my name or some cute christmas-y cross stitching before next year.
I’d like to start a blog for my sewing, even if no one will see it. Right now I don’t actually have a camera, so any pictures of my projects are going to be absolutely awful quality, but I look forward to posting about projects I make, the machines I use, techniques I find, etc. I hope I remember this blog exists, I’m pretty bad about that.
