I am off to Salem, Massachusetts for Halloween, home of the Haunted Happenings. Now I really don’t like costumes but why not dress up for the occasion. When in Rome, do as the Romans, right?

After some pondering, I decided that I was going to dress up as my ancestors: the Mennonite people. Also, sewing some traditional clothes would make for a great sewing project … which is actually the main reason.

I started sewing a men’s bomber jacket last week and got about halfway done. I had to start this week by fixing something from last week, but by the end, I did get it all done. Yay me.

I am ratcheting up the challenge for myself and trying my hand at sewing a men’s bomber jacket. I am using upholstery fabric I picked up at the thrift store.

While at the thrift store, I also grabbed a copy of Cosmopolitan Confessions Magazine for a bit of light roasting. For the lols.

My bed is a mattress on the ground, two pillows and a bed sheet. Very basic and boring. I’m a 30 year old man. This is not right. So this week I decided to do something about it … but on a budget.

I hoped on the ‘gram for some inspiration, went to the thrift store for the majority of my materials, popped into the hardware store and stopped off at the garden center. Then I got to work.

I’ve been meaning to sew myself some black T-shirts but have been putting it off because I just haven’t made the time and I felt like it’d make for a boring video. So this week I decided, screw it, I’ll make those tees and I’ll make the video entertaining …

Last week I tried making a crewneck sweatshirt for the first time and it turned out pretty decently, so I went to the fabric store this week and bought myself some new material to sew one EXACTLY to my heart’s content.

Once it was done though, I came to a realization about my style and myself that I needed to talk out. A trip to my therapist was in order. Of course my pesky professor couldn’t leave me alone for a week as well.

Autumn is around the corner so I decided to take my first stab at sewing a crew neck sweater. I went to the thrift store and picked up two oversized sweaters as the material and got to work. Upcycling, you know. But also, why waste money and new fabrics if I’ve never done it before, right?!

I also checked in with my crops one more time.

And finally, a new character joins the cast. Professor Cornelius Quiring. Oh boy …

It was the last week before school started again so my nephew and I spent the time together at grandma’s house.

Last week I started making a pair of shorts and I got them about halfway done, so this week, I finished them. Makes sense, right?

And I didn’t bandy about this week either, I just got to it … I think.

After I finished them, I even tried out a few different looks of how I can wear them. Turns out it’s fun to do a bit of roleplaying.

Autumn is about a month away and the weather is going to become a bit chiller, so why not make a pair of #shorts? Seems to make logical sense, right?!

Truthfully, the purpose of #sewing these shorts is for the practise. Also, I used some left over fabric from a pair of upcycled shorts I made many moons ago.

Finally, Manny and I also did a bit of role playing and I called the therapist … all to help me with my dismal dating life.
