Let's face it. Everyone has their weird quirky thing that they are into in Middle School. For some reason or another, my thing was turtles. Stuffed animals, figurines, turtle lamps, I guess turtle fabric for shorts...
Yeah, embarrassing. Good thing I got of that obsession quickly.
However, for a project for a kid, they didn't turn out half bad. In fact, they are still wearable...and comfortable, for that matter. A little faded, I'll give you that.
I do remember the (now faceless in my memory) Home Ec teacher's sewing tips, like: having to press your seams, how to thread a machine, and how to "try" to sew straight lines. Obviously, I rebelled a little bit (photo below).
I'm really proud of these dorky little shorts. It makes me want to find a pattern and try it again some day. Maybe even try pajama bottoms. But not turtles. That pattern can retire.
What was your first project?
