Someone’s favorite leggings were ruined last week in a tumble. My daughter’s eyes got real big when I pulled out the scissors and snipped off the bottoms of her pants. I hope she doesn’t get any grand ideas! With just a few more weeks of summer, we may be able to eek out a little more wear.
Using the zigzag stitch on my sewing machine, a “lettuce leaf” edge was created by pulling the jersey leggings as it was stitched. I narrowed the stitch length (.9 on my sewing machine) for a tighter hem. Volia! Shorts! Like new!
Ever try the Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafer icebox cake? With 2 cups of whip cream and one box of wafer cookies, layer alternating between wafers and whip cream to make a 14″ log. Frost with remaining whip cream and refrigerate for 4 hours. Slice on diagonal and top with fruit if desired. Yum!!
Oh, how life has changed. It’s 9AM and I’m rocking my son to sleep for his first nap, after all, when you wake up at 5:45AM, 9AM feels like afternoon. Good time to check in on Coachella. Loving the crowns!
Since, sadly, I’m no longer in my twenties, I think a flower crown would look far better on my daughter. I’m adding it to my “make” list. Check out blog Lines Across for tutorials on how to make felt flowers.
