And I’m not talking about the island in the Channel…
I bribed Y into letting me go to the craft shop. His part of the deal was that he stay in the car with a sleeping L and his iPhone complete with geek game. Y had requested jersey p.j. shorts, and never having worked with jersey before, but really wanting to, I had to go and buy some. For some reason, I had heard it was harder to sew with, and I could imagine it was maybe that it has to be guided through the machine a little more forcefully.
I found the jersey aisle..urghh, just a little aisle in a whole warehouse of other loveliness. I picked up a bolt of plain grey jersey and looked around for other things. Magic of magic things, there was a whole shelf stand type thing full of the stuff…there was a jersey SALE! 140cm x 110cm for 500 yen O_O The icky thing was that there was only baby print fabric or stripey. I thought, ah well, if I don’t care about the way the stripes are coming together too much, it shouldn’t be that hard. And at 60% less than the stuff on the bolt, I thought it would be silly to not go for it. So thinking that the sale wouldn’t last forever, of course I piled it all into the basket..naughty.
And then last night, I made him the p.j. shorts just in time for bed. And whoever said jersey was tough was lying. Next are mine!
