still here, sort of, and another T-shirt!

I decided it was high time I finally made something with this nani iro knit fabric I got in Japan several years ago. I bought it in Nagasaki at a great fabric store that Jan took my mother and me to. It is that yummy double layer knit stuff that I love so much. I guess I held off on using it because I wanted to find the perfect pattern and/or I didn’t want to mess it up. I guess I finally came to my senses and realized that hey, I usually just wear T-shirts, so why not get on with it.

I used the Fujiko pattern from Tamanegi Kobo, which I adore. The store makes it very easy for English-language speakers to purchase patterns, and you just print out the pieces and tape them together.

Spring is coming, supposedly, so I am hoping to get my sewing groove on and finally dig into some Liberty Fabric that I have been stashing. I think recent international events have convinced me that there is no point in procrastinating!

    Certainly! There is no point in waiting around for the perfect pattern. It’s something I’m trying to learn, because I have more fabric stash than is reasonable for someone who hates to cut the fabric!

    I love those polka dots and how they look painted and not all the same! That seems like a fabric I’d hoard too, because I was afraid of messing it up.
