My latest sewing project started out to be a shirt for Evan. Just a casual shirt, kind of like a Hawaiian shirt. This is one of my procrastination projects. You know the variety, you start you stop, you start again. Well this week I started this project again, and I’m in it to the finish. I was somewhat motivated by a little voice asking me, “Grandma, when are you going to finish my vest?”. And I really needed to get on my horse and get it done, because he is getting so tall!!
Of course, it was Evan asking me, and I have been telling him all along this will be a shirt. But he has had a different vision. He wants a vest. So being the good grandma that I am I am altering my project to a vest. He is quite insistent that he will wear this over t-shirts. I think in the heat of the summer he will just wear it after swimming. So in my sewing instructions I skipped over the sleeves and made him a vest.
Here’s a few pictures of my project during construction:
I finished Evan’s “vest” last Thursday night and gave it to him Friday morning before he left for school. The doggie buttons were a little wonky to button on his own so he needed a little help. “Grandma, you finished it!!”, Evan exclaims. I say, “Just for you, Evan.”
After school he came home and took off his t-shirt and just wore his doggie vest. It was so cute. For me, one more procrastinated project off of my list, and a happy grandson to boot!! Who could ask for anything more? Next project is in the works, cloth napkins for my dining room table. What’s the latest project you’ve procrastinated on?
