My sister Halie is taking Fine Arts in University. Apparently her brushes did not have a case suitable for carrying to home, class and back again. She asked me to make her one, so here it is! I just made up my own pattern and using bias tape for the edges made it pretty quick and easy. The denim came from an old pair of paint stained jeans I was going to throw away and I used a piece of clear plastic on the inside to help protect the brushes.
Using the longest brush I had as a guide for height I thought there would be plenty of room, but my sister just had to have a super looong one! She says she likes so I’m satisfied. She took these pics in her studio and the last one is her hand so you can get a sense of the size.
Now that my sis has her paintbrushes all organised maybe I should make a case for mine!
I’m so happy overalls are back in style! And I think that this will be the summer where I find the perfect pair, I can feel it. Finding a pair of overalls that are both stylish and comfortable can be challenging. You need one that is fitted in the right spots, not too loose in the wrong spots, and doesn’t ride up your crotch! My roommate in college, Colleen, had the perfect pair and I loved borrowing them from her. Kind of wishing they would have wound up in my pile on moving day. sigh. There are also lots of styling options with overalls. You can cuff them up, wear both straps done up, only one strap up, or have both hanging down. I think it could be a great summer staple. Now it’s time to find a just right pair of my own!
Hopefully this will inspire you to give overalls a try this year. I’m going to keep an eye out at thrift shops. Just please DO NOT get these ones. Sheesh.
