Bra-A-Week : Christmas Presents
This is going to be a shorter post today, no submissions and no too many pictures, I think everyone is taking a bit of a break for the holidays.
I also wanted to take a moment to reflect and say, this is it. This is the final week of the Bra-A-Week Challenge 2015. How do you feel? I feel pretty incredible right now, I remember when I started this challenge back in January, as a much more novice bra-maker, thinking that it would be a good thing to challenge myself to do, but possibly a little unrealistic. But I persevered, and so did you guys wow! I have seen some of the most amazing submissions this year, and so much progress from so many of you! It’s truly incredible 🙂 and I feel so lucky to be at the center of it all.
Now as I mentioned before, I’m going to be posting in a couple days to tell you what is in store for the Bra-A-Week Challenge in 2016, but I can say that you can keep sending me submissions 🙂
So for this final challenge, I thought I would get with the giving Christmas spirit and make two comfy bralettes for my mom and sister 🙂
The striped one is made out of stretch cotton jersey and was purely an around-the-house comfy bra for mom to wear, kind of like pjs 🙂 And the purple plaid is made out of flannelette and is super soft and comfy too for my sister.
It was such a lovely afternoon in my studio on Christmas Eve, listening to Christmas music, in my own little world sewing these up for my favourite people 🙂 I don’t have any photos of them on, because we’ve all been so busy after they were opened Christmas morning. But I can tell you that they fit and they are loved!
How was your Christmas? How was your year? I can’t believe it’s almost the New Year. And I have so many exciting things coming up for it too!
