Last week I started working on my Mennonite Halloween Costume. This week, I finished it.

Last week I talked about my Mennonite experience. This week, I talked about my own personal experience growing up as a Mennonite.

You look like a farmer Cornelius, I hear. Yes, I’m a farmer. But a Mennonite farmer. I am dressing like my brethren.

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 liked the one from last week enough to have the confidence to go out and buy new fabric for a new sweatshirt.

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.
