Then we got back to the house and fixed us each one of those small pizzas and DH fixed popcorn. That meant I had about an hour to work on my dolly project. I did get her a pair of slacks made and was hoping to make her a poncho shirt like I have but the serger and I got into a disagreement and it won for a long time, but then I took the lead and got to sew decorator thread around the poncho . My next difficulty was trying to get her head through the top . I cut it small and she would not fit, so I kept trying and the last time when I could get her head through the hole - it was now TOO large and just fell off of her shoulders. POO! That silky brown that she is holding was the fabric I attempted to use and the serger REALLY did not like to sew it .I thought for sure when I got it serged all the way around that my troubles were over. Another lesson tackled.
Shoot, I'm out of time . At least half of the project is good. Maybe tomorrow will help me with the shirt. She might not get a poncho shirt after all? : )
