I started out the day by folding the edges of the belt loops over and sewing them down.
Then I sewed the waistband on and sewed it shut. As I was sewing around to sew it shut, I sewed on the top half of the belt loops, reversing and sewing over each one 3 times.
Then I sewed over the bottom of each one 3 times.
And marked the button holes.
Only a few more days left of the contest. I know I will get it done.
