I wanna make……..

Go to Purl Bee


 I definitely want to make some of these!  I found them on The Purl Bee today.  I think I’ll start with the knit version, just because I can knit.  And then I’ll move onto a crocheted version, because I want to learn to crochet.  (Or relearn…. I do know some basics from when I was a child.)

The other thing I want to make is a duct tape dress form.  I came across the idea in a book at Chapter’s last night (in Subversive Seamster: Transform Thrift Store Threads Into Street Couture).  I had never heard of such a thing, but a quick search on Google reveals it’s quite a well-known friend of seamstresses everywhere!  I’m hoping to make my first one soon, belly and all.  I really need a few more articles of clothing to get me through the next few months, and I figure I’ll probably make some mistakes on my first dress form anyway.  Might as well practice in this body shape!
