In observance of Fun-A-Day, here are my most recent projects:
January 23: another attempt at the same hat, this time in black
January 24: A (hopefully) final fix to the ages-old keyhole disaster
January 25: Stage one of hoodie-from-scratch
January 26: Stage two of hoodie-from-scratch (the body was from polyester fabric, and the hood from an old cotton t-shirt)
January 27: Paisley polyester thrift store gem– tailored at the torso and the sleeves
January 28: The rise of the cords has been slightly lowered, and the thighs have been slimmed
January 29: Sweater hole– fixed!
Day 5: oh no! my favorite jeans were getting a hole in the knee! A little darning solved the problem.
Day 6: I desperately needed an inside pocket in this jacket
Day 7: Shoe repair
Day 8: loose thrift store long sleeve made short-sleeved and more snug
Days ONE through FOUR of my 2011 Fun A Day project, which is to make
one clothing alteration/fabrication per day.
Day One: neck tie found in the street becomes a little more festive with (also found) blue satin
Day Two: $2 stained salvation army sweater dyed, and fitted
Day 3: Free t-shirt + bargain elastic = cheap underpants
