This is a bag I made for keeping the books, cord, Pen and everything for the Leapster TAG reading system that we're giving our grandson (5 years old) for Christmas.
Gee - can you tell they live in the Indianapolis area?…
Help me decide..........
My hubby and I ballroom dance (social, not DWTS!) and New Year's Eve is always a fun time for which I always make a new gown (and since I owned a fabric shop in town for 13 years - many 'watch' for what I make each year it seems). I found a wonderful velour panne type velvet knit in a ruby red with embossed starbursts while I was in Atlanta this summer for the American…Continue
Apron Stitching - Arghhh to Simplicity Directions!
This week I took time to stitch up an apron for Dear Daughter - to go with her decor of her first little home with #1 Grandson and wonderful new hubby! Thought it would come in handy as she does Christmas cooking in her first home's little kitchen.…
Creatively Busy AGAIN.... some of my current KITS for jackets I offer at the sewing expos around the country include cashmere neck scarves and Pashmina scarves, so I decided to execute some jackets utilizing them, just in time for next week when I am at the Houston Quilt Festival as a vendor and on the Faculty. I'm very excited to have a class there on Tuesday about my jackets, and also a Trunk Show class.… Continue

This one was fun! Re-cycling the sweater (a favorite from a Mexican vacation) that my husband inadvertently 'felted' was really pretty easy. This is a VERY unique collar, and tomorrow I'll be testing it out in a woven fabric as well. I'm thinking that collar will need to be cut on the Bias. Over and over again, I'm convinced how absolutely competely NECESSARY it is to have a stash of fabrics! the grey on this jacket and the brown binding are opposite… Continue

Wheww - that's a big picture - dunno how to make smaller. This is my first jacket with a draped effect collar for this pattern, CHOSEN. The trim is what i call 'Doupioni Fur'. The process is to design - sew - take notes as I go - and photos of every step. Much doing, un-doing and re-doing. That's the fun part! Then...writing the directions… Continue

OK - I'm ready - have exercised, organized, rested the weekend, most dishes are tended to - and though there are (plenty)weeds in my flower beds, the time has come to design/write/record, etc. for my new pattern: CHOSEN. I've done several jackets already, but I need to refine/add to - do more, etc. Ideas from snoop shopping on vacation added to the concept - so I can't wait to get started. The photo is really an organized mess - necessary to figure… Continue
