Two days ago I started this sweater project. I've never made a sweater before but I can honestly say I'm glad for the experience. Remind me of that when I'm struggling to sew together the pieces, okay?
I'm holding off on purchasing the buttons because there is a sale coming up next week at a fabric store nearby on their buttons. Buttons are expensive. The ones I have in mind are really expensive too. I was thinking of novelty ones like animals or maybe a faux pearl.
Meanwhile I will finish up the second sleeve today and start sewing together the garment. So glad I learned different needle crafts at my mom's knees. I first started sewing when I was just four years old. I won't brag so I won't list all the different things I've learned to do but I can survive thanks to mom, home-ec, girl scouts and, home bureau.
Here are a few pictures of what I'm making:
