I’ve been working on a project for a week or so and had big plans to talk about it today…
but as life would have it, things changed.
On Thursday evening Goose tells me that she’s been working on a Social Studies project at school and has volunteered me to sew the project outfit.
Hmm, I say. Who are you studying?
Okay, so when is it due?
Okay, I’ll see what I can do.
On Friday I Googled John Sevier to see what I was up against. If you’re interested, he looks like every other white-haired-wig-guy of that time.
On Saturday, we headed to Hancock Fabrics for a pattern and some felt. I also grabbed some white yarn for the wig.
On Sunday I finished it all up.. and may I present to you… John Sevier.
This was a fun little coat to make. I went with felt because I’m lazy and I didn’t want to hem any of the edges. A+ for me on that idea… Felt made the job so much easier. In fact, Goose helped with a lot of the sewing!
The wig was a hoot to make also. It’s just a crocheted hat with clumps of yarn stitched in. Looking at it now, I suppose I should have trimmed it up a bit.
Goose was pleased with the outcome too. She was pretty excited to show the class. Let’s hope all goes well.
