I’ve been looking for a pattern of some kind to use this fabric with since I got it. It’s another one of my grandma stash fabrics. It’s very retro (as most of the fabrics from her are) :) but I think it’s fun. I used this pattern/tutorial – which is meant for lighter weight material, but I think it still came out okay. (SP27)
Oh, and I meant to put this in it’s own post, but then I made a shirt… so they get to go together…
I got caught on YouTube today after watching a Kid President video (“Letter To A Person On Their First Day Here”) which led me to some of his other videos which then led me to SoulPancake which apparently is full of some really awesome things. I don’t know how I haven’t come across it before. I rarely get on YouTube, but when I do I end up watching these mindless videos that are usually funny, yes, but not particularly meaningful. Gotta say… this stuff is good. Definitely a good place to look when you need a pick-me-up.
And just a few thoughts from Kid President:
“Some days gross things will happen. Some days awesome things will happen. Some days you’ll get ice cream. Some days you won’t”
“High fives are like hitting someone who is your friend”
“You’re going to be important. And you’re going to do a lot. And you’re going to smell great. But don’t get too busy.”
:) Awesome little kid.
