I could just buy a backpack and problem solved, but then that would be too easy! So instead, I’m making one myself and this is my first attempt.

I started this week by using an old cotton Ikea drape, drafting a basic pattern and sewing it together. It’s not pretty, it’s not beautiful, but it has started me off on the project.

It’s been 3 weeks, it took too long, but I finally finished sewing my dark grey / black houndstooth slacks!

At the end, I did a little review / autopsy of my work.

I started cutting the pattern for my pants last week when I had to cut the video short to get some work done.

This week I started sewing my pants / slacks. Fun Time Corn also shared a bit about our skiing adventure this past weekend.

I wanted to make a full sewing video this week, but it got too busy with “other” things so I had to cut things a bit shorter.

Last week I started sewing these pants. The biggest challenge was trying to pattern match the fabric and spoiler alert: it didn’t go well.

This week I finished said pants and they actually turned out quite nicely. Watch & you’ll see what I mean.

I started sewing a pair of grey plaid pants and I’m attempting to pattern match the fabric. It has been proving much more challenging than I could have imagined. I am having some success though.

My good friend @mgcirillo gifts pins to his friends over the holidays. There are many Corns in my videos.

This present is a reflection of the characters. Not only is it very thoughtful, it is a stunningly beautiful piece. Merci monsieur.

In my last post, I showed the pattern that I updated. These are the pants I made from said pattern. Didn’t I do a good job of posing in a way where I make them look their best?!

3 weeks ago I started sewing a pair of black jeans. It’s taken so long because at each step I made improvements to my basic pants pattern. This week despite various distractions, I managed to finish said black jeans.

He always wears a turtleneck and blazer. He thinks his glasses make him look smart. He definitely doesn’t suffer fools.

I think he had some unfortunate experiences as a child that made him as mean as he is, but he really does help me with my problems. I went to go see him this week.
