My new {handmade} shirt

Hello, everyone!

Today for the Scripture Memorization Challenge I memorized:

Ephesians 6:10-13
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this ago, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Now for the Fall Fashion Challenge. Today's challenge was to wear bold tights. However, I realized that the only people in my house who own tights are my five, three, and less than a year old younger sisters. So, I wore patterned knee socks instead. :)

Shirt: Hand-me-down
Tank top: Old Navy (I am wearing it backwards)
Denim Skirt: Made by Me
Argyle Knee Socks: Goodwill (no worries, they were brand new :P)

Today I made this shirt:

I had started it earlier with my sister Lydia, but today I hemmed up everything and made a belt. It is basically a rectangle with sleeves and a neck hole with a strip of material tied around it. It is made out of a jersey-knit material so it is nice and stretchy, not to mention really comfortable. :)

So, the lighting was good, I liked the shirt, and I had some free time. So, I had a little photoshoot with myself. :) Hello, tripod!

Silly powerlines...I kind of look like I'm sniffing them. :P

Happy Tuesday!

p.s. i am really happy because we have no school on Friday thanks to Veterans Day. *smiles*

    Lily - my sister came up with an idea. I just went along with it and did the boring sewing. :)
    Gabby - I would, but I really like it. :) It was mostly my sister's doing.


Thank you for stopping by and brightening my day with a little bit of sunshine!
