Sherrie stopped by to be creative. With all that she already has on her plate she has volunteered to make hats for her young women’s camp group.
Along with her ideas and fabric she brought along Emma and her niece which was a great treat for my kiddos. It was raining, a holiday so we were all home and Harvey was upstairs fixing a leak in our roof so the unexpected playgroup was euphoria for the whole group. The busy household went as follows: Harvey was upstairs, alternating between Kyra’s room and the attic trying desperately to fix the leak that had somehow gone from the edge of the roof to the middle of Kyra’s room (ironically the only room upstairs with the wood floors.) Sherrie and I were on the main floor trying to figure out how to make an engineer cap from scratch seeing has how that was seemingly the only hat pattern in existance that I didn’t already have drafted. The kiddos were downstairs in the toy room playing dress up and putting on the Crazy Day Fashion Show.
Now, I am a great fan of Project Runway and love to see the height of fashion. I look longing at these designs and wish that I had even a pinky full of fashion talent. The fashions coming out of Franco Basement I must say could very well rival those of Bryant Park in New York. We loved them.
Now, I am also very proud to tell all four of you that read this blog, that we got the hat pattern drafted…… from scratch. It was a proud moment. I had spent all day long making prototypes of different hats for some clients that had custom requests but, the one that Sherrie and I came up with was my favorite of the day. Better yet, it only took about a half an hour to draft the pattern and sew the hat. I only wish that we had made it out of a more fun fabric so that I could have something a bit flashier to show off.
