Me and my Big Mouth

So as if I don't have enough projects going on...

My boyfriend came home yesterday complaining that his clown costume doesn't fit anymore (yes, I'm dating a clown), and he needs to find someone to make him a new one.

...this is where the big mouth part comes in...

I say, "Well, I can make you one."

He says, "But baby, you don't know how to sew!"

...this of course clinches the deal, and lays down a challenge for me...

I say, "Just because you haven't seen me sew, doesn't mean I can't do it!"

...This is true, I can sew, but I haven't in a reeeally long time. I do have a nice sewing machine though...

So off we went to JoAnn's last night, picked out a pattern and material. He, of course, had alterations he wanted me to make to the pattern (Yikes!), and now I'm all set to go.

Of course I'm have two custom orders to be done, and lots of busy work that needs doing....sigh...me and my big mouth.


  1. Hehe, "dating a clown"!
    I know about the "too many projects" - I'm really trying to simplify this year. And..... no sewing, LOL!

  2. Very cute story - and best of luck with your sewing project! A new season of Project Runway starts next week :)

  3. HaHa...That sounds like something I would do! Hang in there, you'll get it all done! I hope you clown appreciates it!

  4. Sounds like a good challenge! You'll have to keep us updated and share pics - the making of a clown costume is too interesting to miss!

  5. I'm really excited to see the finished project. Congratulations - you are a dating a clown!! How great is that?
