The great thing about Craftsy is that you can put off taking the class until you're ready. (It's all videos and discussion boards than can be accessed asynchronously.)
The not so great thing about Craftsy is that you can put off taking the class until you're ready. (This is a site for motivated crafters. I don't always fall into that category!)
However, sewing that skirt is on my to-do list for this week. I do have some fabric at home, but nothing from the fabric shelf was calling my name, so I headed to Len's Mill today to check out my choices.
Here's what I came home with:
|Dancers and robots! Two fun fabrics for two fun skirts.|
|This fabric is actually called "Biker Bugz," which makes me think these are motorcycle parts. I'll still call it my robot fabric.|
|Close-up of the dancer fabric. I love the silhouettes of the jazz musicians in the background.|
Yes! If all goes well, I'm going to be heading back to school with a robot skirt and a dancing skirt. The fabric is in the washing machine right now, getting pre-shrunk so that I can make the perfect fit.
I won't be starting the skirts today, though: I didn't look at the instructions very carefully and after watching the first two video segments, I've realized that I need to get a fashion design ruler and some tracing paper. (This is serious stuff!)
Guess I'll have to tackle something else from The List!
