I started working on transforming some tees into a polo shirt, but then realized I had made things more difficult for myself then they needed to me. Next I had to go grab another t-shirt from the thrift store to cut up so in the mean time, Poppa Plants took over and finished out the episode.

I started making 2 white button ups last week.

This week my biggest challenge was sewing the plackets. I took the time to figure out my placket pattern properly and the whole project took much more time then I had anticipated, but I got them done and it has all be worth it. I have two classic white button ups now.

I picked up a white king size bed sheet at the thrift store and got to work turning it into two button up shirts. I had planned for it to be a straightforward sewing video, but once it came to the collars, I messed up again! I’ve been sewing for two years now and I still struggle sewing collars!

I operate on a weekly schedule. My weekly videos are a big part of this. It also seems my sewing supplies are low so for this week’s video, I went around Toronto to pick up some supplies.

Finally, I got myself something nice.

In the spring, mom and I planted some veggies. I put some in containers in my apartment, but we also planted vegetables in her garden.

Well now it’s harvest season. Here’s an update on both hers and mine.

It seems Suspicious Corn isn’t ready to give up on his quest from last week to find out why I’m doing “simple projects” so he continued to hassle me this week. Despite his interferences, I efficiently used left over fabric to sew shorts and a sweater.

This week I looked back at some of my previous sewing projects. I fixed a few of them and reviewed others. Some items are staples in my wardrobe now while others are simply lost causes.

Oh, and there’s a new Corn in town. Suspect Corn.

I found an Ikea futon frame on the side of the road, picked up a few pieces of lumber and using my basic woodworking skills turned it into a proper bed frame.

The responsibilities from last week continued this week, but this time it was taking care of my nephew for a few days. With the time I had left over, I made the remaining laundry bags using recycled fabrics.

I’m a grown man and I’ve been throwing my dirty laundry on the floor in my closet. Shame. I had visions of making a magnificent hamper contraption with pulleys, levers and such but in the end decided to use what I had in my apartment to sew a laundry bag. That, turns out, was the true genius.
