So I was sitting in the living room, listening to Red Rocks talking with a friend. He ran out and grabbed something from his room. A story he's been writing. My child is writing a story. And it's pretty good. But he didn't tell me about it. *sigh*
So last week I decided to make my daughter, Maybelline, a cape. She wears a black satin and velvet sleeveless gown for her vocal performances. Her jacket has gotten ratty and she looks silly in the brown parka. So I thought I'd make something she could wear and look elegant. What do you think?
No, that's not Maybelline. That's my buddy, Savvy. She was a trooper and came over so I could pin the hem while a live person was wearing it. Thank you, Savvy! This is Maybelline:
It's her Christmas gift, and yes, it's early. She has a vocal performance Monday night. I'll post pictures after, if I have time. Y'all know - this couple of weeks leading up to Christmas are crazy. But some of you had asked about the cape, so here are some of the photos of the project in process:
Snooty gave me this mug. :)
I love this lining!
Nearly done - waiting on a hem.
Until I write again ...
