Sorry I haven’t been posting. Blah blah blah been busy blah blah blah didn’t have time blah blah blah lots of other stuff going on blah blah blah blah ON TO THE INTERESTING STUFF!
This week is Olympic week. (Because of the Olympics this week.) Yes I know that skating is in the winter Olympics, but today I am going to show you how to make a skirt! All you need is cloth, a plate and a marker. The cloth should be stretchy if you don’t want to hem it. (Because when you try to hem it your mom calls you, you go do the chore you have to, your sister needs help, you help her, your hamster gets out, you catch it, and by the time you get back to the sewing machine it’s dinnertime and you have to put it away) Trace your plate on the cloth. Cut it out. Oh, wait. You need scissors for that. Let me rephrase that. Find scissors, try to cut it out, give up on your terrible scissors and take the time to go get scissors that cut. (Actually just start with good scissors.) Fold your circle in quarters. Cut the top off, try it on your doll, cut more off if needed. Cry because you cut to much off and don’t have any cloth left, but let your doll wear it anyway. You are done! (Until you realize you weren’t using stretchy cloth and have to hem it.) For a bow fold up a rectangle of cloth and tie something around it to keep it in place. (Then you get to figure out how to get in in your doll’s hair!) Enjoy! (Or have it get ripped up by your dog as soon as it’s done.)
