    Bought a remnant of some nice lining material, cut a square six inches deep and twice the width + 1 inch the existing pocket, French seams on two sides. Cut out the bottom of the old pocket, French seamed the new pocket to the old pocket, and felled the flappy bit down so it isn’t bulky in my skinny jeans. It was a fairly difficult project, honestly. I was dealing with narrow seam allowances, weird angles, and bulky jeans that got in the way constantly. I did about half of it by hand.

    New pocket is about 9 inches deep, plenty deep enough for my phone, headphones, and charger. I don’t use my left front pocket for anything, so I left it small. I have enough lining fabric to do this to at least a couple more pairs of jeans.

    $50 one day build. Now I need to figure out what to do with it.

    I kind of want to sell it, because I have very little use for a little caplet like this, but it was expensive to make and took about 7 hours, and I don't know who would pay $120 for this weird little thing

    Mark it up to $200 and through it at ebay or etsy, or even onto a fb group I guarantee you someone will nab it.

    my girlfriend is the cutest, it's true
    and thank u so much for the compliment
    the lining in the bodice may need to be restitched at some point, but other than that I feel VERY happy with it.

    I sent away for some fat eighths of japanese fabric from etsy. my plan is to make a bag for myself, since I got practice making bags for my friends. C: if there's fabric left over I'll make a coin pouch or pencil case or something. I'm not sure which designs will be inside, but from the sample options and the happy reviews I'm excited.

    this is from a few weeks ago, but i bought a super cheap "punky" black denim jacket for protesting in (since im trying to stay out of my usual clothes) and it was intentionally distressed. which made it... the perfect place to start learning to darn!

    so i did a little rainbow guy for my first ever attempt - turned out okay but i have literally never embroidered/darned in my life so this was new

    I had just... kinda stopped spinning with pandemic stress, but I've picked it back up again lately. Finishing off some WIPs I had lingering, then I picked up one of the very special luxury treat braids I bought months ago with one of my first paychecks and blew through almost the whole process in a day. It was a really good feeling, and a really pretty spin <3

    The braid of fiber before I began:

    I waited forever to buy from these dyers (Inglenook Fibers) because they're on the pricey side and also the level of insane popular that you need to set an alarm for an announced shop update and work fast or the shop is emptied again almost immediately. But it was SO WORTH IT. I still have a second braid on hand in a colorway I loved even more that I'm saving for a rainy day of the soul. They are literally the best dyers I've ever seen and I am in awe that I get to play with their work.
