I've already started on a boucle jacket (S4374) to which I'll add a couple of skirts.I've made that jacket twice before for myself so I should have some success with DD's jacket.I'm really enjoying this project!
Then I'm planning to make Tamara a new spring coat.I'm leaning towards New Look 6518 .It's the one I used for this jacket which I love. I'm planning on changing the collar a bit but we'll see,
Thought I'd show you what just arrived in the mail a couple of days ago. This,,,,,,,
and I absolutely love it. I've already spent many hours browsing the issues I don't own I'm compiling a list of favorite articles for future use. I highly recommend this product. It is very user friendly.
Oh and I do have a couple of things to show you which I made from recycled denim skirts, yet another project for my Sewing Group.
This tote, trimmed in faux suede and eyelets will probably go to my GD .I merely cut the hem off the skirt,sewed across the bottom, sewed across the corners to form a flat bottom, covered a piece of cardboard with cotton print and velcroed it to the bottom.I used the cut off hem as the handles , also trimmed with the suede.
This wristlet, I'm using for the notions I take with me to my sewing class.It was a pocket which I cut out ,added a back, a zipper, and a wrist handle. Pretty cute huh! And it couldn't have been easier to make.
I do hope you've found time to sew lately.
More later from
