I was totally planning to have those underwear done, but then my sister got me back into Skyrim and all my time was built killing draugr and building my virtual house, so the only part I actually finished was the enclosed gusset.
Still, it should be pretty quick (if mildly annoying) to attach the elastic and finish these up.
My friend EV came to town today for my birthday weekend, and we made a trip to Fabric Depot that wound up being the entire afternoon – mostly just gawking at stuff, because while Fabric Depot isn’t far, it’s not nearly as close as Joann, so I don’t get over there very often. (I’m going to have to change that – FD has a much better selection. It’s probably worth the extra time to get over there if I’m looking for anything that isn’t extremely basic.)
I decided that my next project is going to be that bag from the Japanese bag pattern book, done up in red ballistic nylon with navy accents. I briefly looked up needle types for ballistic nylon and am now terrified of this project, but I have all the pieces now, so it’s going to happen!
Just searching for the notions was exciting, since all the lengths were in metric and I don’t convert very well in my head. Then I bought piping and I’m still not sure if that was supposed to be nylon cord instead? Since something is being fed through into a cord stopper, but then something was also being covered with fabric? Anyway I really didn’t know which one I needed and I didn’t want to be mid-project and have the wrong one, so now I have both cotton piping and also nylon cord. I’m sure I’ll find some use for the one I don’t use.
Goals for next week:
- Finish off the underwear (this time for sure)
- Cut out parts for the backpack
