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’ve been wanting a nice simple black turtleneck shirt / sweater for a while so this week I decided to make one.

And for a bit of entertainment, I shared some stories of my recent online dating experiences.

I don’t have any good workout / athletic clothing to go running in. I exercise wearing chino pants and Vans shoes for goodness sake.

So this week I decided to try my hand at sewing a pair of men’s joggers. I went to the thrift store and found A LOT of this thick turquoise jersey type fabric.

Is it my favourite colour? No, but this is my first time making joggers after all.

Here’s the dirty secret: often after I finish a sewing project / video, there are little improvements I’d like to make but just don’t get to. This week I did that for several of my past endeavours: two of my crewneck sweaters and a couple of my t-shirts.

I also checked in with my Mennonite friend Farmer Corn and went to see Frankie, an old friend.

I finished the Black Jeans that I started last week. And not only are they done, my insecurities were replaced by my friend confidence!

MathGuy3801 has been asking and I’ve been in need, so I got to sewing some basic black men’s jeans.

My mom, sister and I traveled to Salem MA to visit my brother and brother-in-law.

I was also there to partake in the halloween adventures, I had made a Mennonite costume for the occasion after all.

I had also planned on getting a Tarot Card reading, but what I hadn’t expected was the adventure it would send me on.
