New! Sewing! Machine! (I love it).
I used this pattern, which is free, and one of my top sheets, which was also free, if you don't consider buying it in the first place. I don't use top sheets in my bed making routine, so they just sit stacked in my linen closet.
The pattern also involves ribbon and elastic, both of which I had on hand.
I started and finished this project this afternoon, so. One can do that.
It helps that it's been raining all day.
I haven't worked on a sewing machine in over ten years, so I would say the skills needed are minimal.
Maybe it's just not apparent to ME, for I have been drinking wine while I sew.
I think they're cute, and I'm glad I made them. I wish they were a little bit (maybe an inch or so) longer.
I'm also not sure that they're not a little TOO bloomerish, in a little kid way. I mean, I know they're bloomers, obviously. I just hope they don't make me look like a toddler.
