I used my own tutorial for the boots. Can I say, without meaning to be egotistical, that I am so thankful for my own tutorials? Because I always toss out my paper patterns when I'm done, thinking I'll never make the same thing again (why would I? It's boring), and then the next year -surprise!- I'm making the same thing again. Thank goodness I can download my own patterns and print them out and follow my own (sketchy) instructions to make something I made just last year but already forgot how to.
Now, if you're thinking, "Um, Wonderwoman's left boot looks like it might be a bit taller than her right one." you're spot-on. That overtall boot was the half-a-boot I was struggling with the other day. It doesn't fit as well as the other. This is what comes of following a pattern (even if it's my own) exactly without thinking, or altering for fit. Of course I'd forgotten that my children have grown since last year, when I made the pattern. Why would I remember such things? I'm in denial.
And now, here's the tally for what I have left to make by Wednesday:
- Two silver bulletproof bracelets
- One red cape = cut a rectangle out of red liquid gold and declare it a cape.
- One pair fairy slippers, with criss-cross ballerina ties.
And guess what? I forgot how to make my own ballet slippers, too. So useless. Not surprising, though. Good thing I can use my other Own Tutorial for those!
Unrelated: Watched Titanic with the husband. Kate Winslet's outfits = sublime. We gave up halfway through the movie, though. Too depressing to have to watch all those good clothes lost at sea, not to mention Leo. Sniff.
