Yoga pants

I was inspired by this Threadbanger video on how to make your own yoga pants to copy a pair of my favorite dance pants. I did it a bit more ad hoc, laying the tracing paper over the pants and tracing that way rather than using a tracing wheel, but I’m quite pleased with how…

Swirl curtains

I desperately needed some curtains for my office. So I decided to make some super simple ones. Of course it’s never that simple with me. I decided on a great pink fabric with swirlies. Love it. But I didn’t want bright fuchsia to show from the street so I decided to line the curtains with…
