I used some old plastic one gallon water jugs for my plants and they were rather unsightly. So for this past week’s video, Mennonite Corn took over and made these plant pot cozies.

How Arts & Crafty, huh?

Yet another week and still no foot pedal for my serger. Mennonite Cornelius has a real go-get-um attitude so he toke over for the week and got to sewing some socks / cozies for his plants.

Full disclosure, he does speak Plautdietsch but I captioned the whole video.

This week’s video was a learning lesson about what it takes to dye fabric and in the end I discovered some unsavoury truths.

I broke the foot pedal on my sewing machine so I decided to experiment with dyeing some fabric. It’s something I’ve been interested in so a perfect opportunity. Dyeing seems easy, right? I thought so too. Just put the fabric in some liquid and boom, done!

Nope. It’s a bit more complicated. It became a real learning experience for me.

Before the holidays I finished making the costume. This week, Pajama Kid got to try on his new PJs. We also did a little superhero theatre and played games.

Last week I started turning my nephew’s Pajama Kid superhero drawings into reality by sewing the top and bottom of the PJs. This week I finished the job and made the face mask & cape.

But also, this week we learn a little about his sidekick, Pajama Man.

My nephew loves Superheroes. He is also a creative little man and he designed his own superhero: Pajama Kid. In an effort to support his artistic endeavours, I am turning his imaginations into reality and creating the Pajama Kid costume. Watch the video on YouTube

I made this fashion list at the beginning of the year with the aim of either purchasing or making all of it by years ends. To say I’m halfway through is generous. But, I have knocked off some of the bigger ticket items and I read somewhere it takes 5 years to develop a solid fashionable wardrobe, so I’m in good shape. Plus, my sewing is getting better.

The journey continues.
