I was a late-comer to the Friday Night Sew-In sign-ups, but I squeaked in. Thanks to Sarah who posted about June's FNSI because I've been meaning to join this sew-along for a while but hadn't managed to get my act together.
I'm happy to say that I actually started and finished TWO Friday Night projects. The first was to cut off the brown jeans I tried on the other day and make 'em capris. I cut off about 6", pressed and topstitched the new hem, and now they'll get worn over the summer until they are too big. Yeah, not exactly a "project," but it did involve sewing.
Next, I made good on my repeated threats to make yet another Hot Patterns Sunshine Top. I've lost count, but I'm definitely over 5 on this pattern. I forget where I picked up this fabric. Does anyone recognize it?
Here it is on Zillie:
And here it is on fuzzy me, paired with my "new" capris.

A number of you asked about the animation from yesterday's post. I converted the pics to B/W GIFs in my photo-editing program and then ran them through an old little program I have that will take a bunch of GIF files in the order I select and make a GIF animation file. I'm pretty sure there are similar freebie programs and/or websites out on the Interwebs if you want to make your own, just search on "GIF Animation."
