I am entering a contest, a sewing contest. I know, I am crazy. I just can't help myself, I love a challenge. I might be crazy, but I am not delusional. I know that my sewing skills are WAY below most of the sewers out there, but if I don't push myself, how will I ever grow. My friend, yes, the same girl I mention ALL the time on here, is having a sewing contest on her blog with awesome prizes. There are tons of people entered so I am not holding my breath. But without further ado, here is my first entry.
If I was really thinking ahead, I would have ironed it before taking this picture. Oh, well. It is a pattern called the school house tunic and it was really easy. Maybe I should have entered a more difficult project... I swear I can make harder stuff, this is just my most recent project. Oh, man, now I am wondering if I should have entered with something different...
Anyways, there is a funny story about when I made this. I was just about finished with it when I realized that it fit everywhere but over my stupid nursing boobs. (Nursing isn't stupid, just the crazy size that your boobs get while doing it.) I was so frustrated. I had to take the entire thing apart and sew panels on both sides to make it work. I bet Tim Gunn would have been proud.
Oh, did you notice my new cut and color? I really do need to make a post about it. I think it is my favorite color and cut on me OF ALL TIME!!!
