So, last day of Me-Made-May ’13 and I decided to make red jeans – my first ever attempt and I am pretty pleased with them. I bought the fabric in Kutwell Fabrics, Christchurch, NZ and used the StyleArc Sandra Jeans pattern. I bought size 8, but they are too big; I really need size 7. I shall be moving buttons and taking in seams on them next week.
I have teamed the jeans with the Vogue 8793 top made from remnants from Knitwit and trimmed with a red zip round the collar. It is so comfy and a very flattering shape that I know I will wear it often.
and one more:
I actually am going to miss this challenge. As mentioned before I pledged two items a week and yesterday I did the count: I managed an average of four items over the month with at least one original every day. I am really pleased with this. Next year will be even better!
This is a long weekend, but we sadly don’t get the Monday holiday. I decided to take today as a leave day, and last night we got packed to go to Margaret River camping. This is a very exciting development – we haven’t been camping for more than a year because of looking after Dad. I told him that he had to stay in hospital so we could come and he managed to look ill enough to be kept in – thanks Dad!
So, this is the sight that greeted me outside our garage last night – campter trailer and Troopie all good to go.
We will manage two nights on the farm, and I will be blogging my best camping attire!
Archie has been heavily into his fingerless gloves – this is the other pair I made him:
GCC steps yesterday: 20,882 (nvg)
Average: 23,830 (dropping, this is a tragedy!)

Have a great time Sue! Will miss you Saturday ha ha! You will need another challenge……. More knitwear would be cool Xxx
on its way!!
As someone who uses hemming tape and a hot iron (was that a communal gasp I heard?!), I’m very impressed! Thanks for the blog, Sue, I’ve enjoyed reading it each day.
My GCC steps’ average – close to 10,000 at the moment. Mmm, almost as bad as using hemming tape!
Enjoy the weekend. Well deserved for both of you.
Your jeans are fabulous Sue! I’m glad you shared them on Flickr.
