A Couple Of Posts

So since today’s post seemed to be pretty short and I did mean to post yesterday, I decided to post them both together. The reason I didn’t post yesterday is because after the food pantry I had less than an hour to get the post together, I also had a slow computer.

A Butterfly Shirt

After noticing a small hole in my favorite shirt I decided I needed to make a copy of it. So after a quick look through our fabric stash I found this fabric.


And I promptly decided that it was perfect. So sadly I have no pictures of the actual making of the shirt, but I do have plenty of other pictures.

The sleeve

I made a pattern and while it struggles to lie flat I really, really like this sleeve so far. I haven’t decided whether I want to wear the sleeves cuffed like in the picture or not, they are rather long.

I hope these pictures do a reasonable job showing how long the sleeves are. Also sorry about the strange background but we were driving home from the food pantry when I took the pictures.


This is half of the back of my shirt, it is just possible to see how annoying it was to sew with the yoke and three back pieces.

Hurray! Pockets!

And this is the front, it is so simple compared to the back, no darts or anything, Yay!

Also pockets, yeah, I’ve finally mentioned what my blog is named for.

And finally the buttons I used, pretty simple, but with a cool detail on closer inspection. Anchors!


And The Promised Food Mention


Watkins Imitation Extract, Pumpkin Spice, 2 Ounce (Pack of 6)

So, there was some of this at the food pantry this week, I was bewildered, but apparently you use it in muffins and such. I remain uncertain as to why you can’t just use pumpkin spice but, whatever.

We also got a case of Oui tm. Our is plain and I haven’t tried it yet, but it does come in these super cool little glass jars.
