so. many projects don't get finished. who the heck knows why. time is usually the problem. but not the only reason. so i thought i would try a new strategy. and imagine Tim Gunn stopping by. just to see me. a famous-crafty-person. hehe. and telling me. to. Make It Work.there wasn't anything particularly wrong with the pattern or what i did with it. i just don't like borders. and always choose to leave them off. but here i am going on and on about the awful border and because i didn't take a picture you can't really see what was wrong. or not wrong. trust me. it looked fine.at the time. i was eager and hesitant to make this. had doubt i could do it well and be happy. i like structure. and this seemed a bit carefree for me. these were my niece's jeans she didn't have very long. and she was growing out of. so perfect. if it didn't work i didn't ruin something important.fast forward to a few days ago. out came the pins. lots of them. and off came the border. i tied it. to flannel. and what had been on the back. i used for the binding. now i love it. i Made It Work. but. to tell the truth. i needed batting. not very much. and safety pins. you always need more than you have. and there they were. so i got what i wanted. and a long-over-due-finish. i like to call this. my 15 block version. a half-lap-size. it measures 36 in. x 60 in.Secondhand Comfort pattern.
