i'm going crazy/have gone crazy making this hooded cape.
what were you thinking, mel?
just because you:
1) own a sewing machine
2) can read instructions
3) have fabric
does NOT mean that you can make a costume.
in a fit of i-am-going-to-pull-my-hair-out (hardeehar, with the little hair i have left) frustration, i lashed out, ARGH, WHY AM I DOING THIS ANYWAY?!?!?
and my little sister, who is so wise beyond her years, said simply and calmly:
"because it is better to make your own costume than buy it at wal-mart."
she should have her own etsy store.
oh, gilly bean.
how could i have forgotten that?
so with that in mind, à la machine!
