Day 9 & Sewing 101 B

This is Buster napping after work.
Today was one of those days where things just bothered me for no reason.  I told myself to just go with it.  It probably had a lot to do with not being able to fall asleep and stay asleep last night.  Thanks, Insomnia!  Because of my sleep issues I didn't make it to the gym.  On the plus side, I've been good about eating right!

Buster and I have puppy class tonight.  I've been able to get him to "watch me", "sit", and "lay down" all day.  I think he totally has it down for tonight.  I just hope he does it during class.  Usually he watches everyone except for me.  I have some dog treats rather than bits of dog food - which usually works with him, just not for training.

As promised, I have finished Sewing 101 B.  It was just a matter of editing and speeding things up, etc.  If I make a future video, it shouldn't take so long - unless it's a project video.  This makes me feel so accomplished today!

Before I post the Sewing 101 B video (down at the bottom), I want to let everyone know that I'm thinking about making a series of videos for my effort to teach myself the Trans-Atlantic accent.  If you would like to learn this with me, I will post a practice vocal sheet (once I make it) that you are welcome to use.  I'm going to use the hashtag #TransAtlanticAccent in my videos.  You are welcome to use that as well.  If you need some support, you can join me over at Transatlantic Accent Revival Group on facebook.

Once you get through Sewing 101 part A, you end up here - ready to sew everything together.  In order to properly demonstrate, I have a shirt that I need to sew.

I will be using a vintage 1954 men's shirt pattern from McCall.  I like this pattern because it is a little different.  This will be my second time using the pattern, so I have a good idea of what I need to be on the look out for.  Next to it is the fabric I'm going to be using.  It's just a quilting cotton.   Quilting cottons tend to retain their color over time and are more durable.


Without further ado, here is Sewing 101 B.  Oh shit!  Bonus!  It's also Sew-Time Wednesday!


Definitely leave me with sewing questions and comments.  I will answer them promptly!
