I never officially joined the Jungle January Sew along over at Pretty Grievances for a countless of reasons, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been trailing along behind watching the action.
I didn’t start this project in January, but I have finished it.
I recently just finished another garment for the IPCA Ticket to Travel Contest – which I will blog about later.
After sending off my entry form I still had the ‘itch’ to sew, so I pulled out one of my PIGS (projects in grocery sacks) which was this bra.
As usual, I receive a bit of construction advice from my cat, who seems to pick the prime spot to watch over whatever I am doing.
I had started this bra so long ago and I had forgotten how to sew it up, so I watched this Bra making video again to refresh my memory.
This is a great video in showing all the steps for sewing a bra.
I think, in retrospect, I should have done the straps a little differently, but I will do on my next bra.
I’m just glad I finished this one. And, it fits me too and it’s comfortable – just like all my ‘custom made bras’ – custom made by me!
The Bra Sew along (clothhabit.com) has been so great. I have learned so much and am eager to try redesigning the bra cups (and band) and adding lace to the bra cups, and I am getting some unsolicited advice there too:
And, finally, I did make one project completely in January that is jungle theme:
A sleeve for my father’s portable hot spot.
He’s not too thrilled with my fabric choice, but I say, ‘That’s what happens when you loose the little black sleeve that came with the device.’ 🙂
My Dad has also asked me to make a new sack for his wood sander . . .
I wonder what ‘wild’ fabric I can use for this one!
