The girls made about €80 at the rummage sale today. More importantly, I got a lot of stuff out of my house. Kringloop, the Netherlands’ answer to Goodwill, arrived with a big truck at the end of the sale to pick up all the unsold items, so none of it came back home. The tissue pouches didn’t sell well — people were there for used household items — but they’ll keep until our pre-Christmas craft sales.
It was after 4:00 this afternoon before I got a chance to sit down at my sewing machine to make today’s Thing. I wanted something quick but useful. I didn’t want to just make something for the sake of making something. And what’s more useful than underwear? Not much.
I set a challenge for myself to see how quick I could sew a pair of underwear for Martina, using the same Cheeky Panties pattern from Burdastyle that I’ve used before.
It’s not the neatest pair I’ve made, but it is the fastest. From start to finish I was busy for about 35 minutes. Yeah, baby. I’m an underwear-making machine.
Quick, free and useful. My kind of Thing.
