After the kids went to bed Monday night, I made my way to my sewing room. I don't remember why I went up there (I didn't plan to stay), but once I got there, I couldn't leave. I started picking up a bit, which lead to FINALLY put the Christmas decorations in the attic, which then lead to putting away the fabrics pulled out from my last project. Once the room was clear and I could see what I had, I started pulling out again.
With thoughts of spring on my mind, I zeroed in on my vintage thrift store sheets. I admit to being a hoarder in this department - but really, what good is it to have these if I'm not going to use them? I've decided to challenge myself to do a shop update with bags made entirely from these linens. Sounds like fun, huh? I'm pretty excited about it! I don't have all the details worked out, but I'm ready to get busy. It will be my spring line (ha! how fancy is that?)
When I first stepped foot into that room Monday night, I was exhausted, but once I got going I couldn't stop. Before I knew it, it was almost midnight. I was so energized - I LOVE that feeling. THIS is how I used to do it - I made time. Each night this week, tonight included, I made some time for myself. I planned on going to bed early tonight, but then decided that I'd rather finish what I started.
I LOVE it - so worth my lack of sleep! I think this may be my most favorite vintage sheet pattern yet, just perfect for a little clutch. Though I planned to line it with another sheet, the pink polka dots spoke to me. Now all I can think about is making clutches out of sheets with polka dot linings. I'm pretty sure my next big bag will be made of this same combination.
Mmmm, it's a good thing I have 2 of these sheets :) Okay, I'm off to bed now...I think I've hit my time making limit for the week.
