Just in case you were wondering where I’ve been all week…
I was making bear costumes.
I know you are just totally jealous right now, so calm yourself.
This is Simplicity 2853. No, it’s not for me – it’s a commissioned sewing job (hence the sudden radio silence – gotta get the work done before I can play again!). I actually made three of these, all in this incredibly soft, cushy, fleecy fur. That shit was a BITCH to cut out because it loooved shedding; I think I spent more time sweeping teddy bear fur off the floor (and onto the cat) than I did anything else. At any rate, I’m 99% done – just need to finish the arm/leg hems & sew the ears on the last one. THEN IT’S PARTY TIME.
Oh! We also managed to explore the attic over the weekend!
Sadly, the attic was pretty much empty… although we did find this chair.
It has no legs (probably took them off to get it in the attic & then they disappeared over the years), but other than that it’s in pretty good shape!
One of the openings to the attic still has wallpaper in the space between the real ceiling & the dropped ceiling. I know, I know – this photo looks like a nightmare. But isn’t the wallpaper crazy? And they even wallpapered the ceiling! God, this house must’ve been tacky as shit lol.
I also finished knitting my red sweater! It’s still blocking, though, so more on that later.
