Yup, that is my motto this summer. I don't want to get out of bed. Oh that doesn't mean I'm actually horizontal, rather I just want to be comfy, all day, all summer long. I can't think of anything more comfortable than when I first get into bed at night. The mattress, pillows, sheets & quilt, they all call me to slumber. It's a good feeling, one worth preserving and sharing.
So here's what's up. I had a need to sew this past week, but didn't want to do anything too strenuous like finish the quilt on my cutting table which would require awkward body positions for basting and quilting. I did something weird to my back/hip and so contortionist sports are not a good idea right now. Instead I wrote up a tutorial for y'all in celebration of summer and all that is good about it.
Are you still with me? It's a pdf download with lots of instruction and photos...don't get out of bed pants Print it up and give it a whirl for yourself, kids, hubby, sister, mum, the dog??...well maybe not the dog but you know, anyone you can think of as long as it stays in gift format all is good. The tutorial is meant for personal use only and items made from it are not to be sold.
If you have any questions in regard to the tutorial just ask away. Happy Sewing to you! xxx
** ETA: If you are using a pair of elastic waist pants as your pattern base, remember to stretch the waist line or you will end up with a waist line that is too small.
