I worked and worked at it until I figured it out. I made a little minky or Cuddle coat for my granddaughter. It turned out pretty well. It’s fully lined, of course, and it’s slightly too big! Oh well, she can grow into it. The pattern called for snaps on the inside. First I fooled around and tried to sew a zipper into it. In theory, it should have worked
For this project you will need 1/2 yard of fabric and 2 yards of cotton cording cut into 2 pieces, 1 yard each. I have so many projects going at any given time, and so do my friends. They are knitters and quilters and sewists. One of the best ways to store your projects and keep them free from dust, dirt and fading is to put them into project bags.
I made an infinity scarf with Shannon Fabrics Seal Cuddle. I honestly couldn’t wait to do it. Following is a quick tip… I saw Judy’s pink one that she featured previously in this blog, and also FELT it. Oh my – it is really luscious – soft, warm and “silky” … a new description for a faux fur fabric, for me anyway. The one pictured is the one I made
I just wanted a skirt pattern. I have many. None of them suited the bill. I knew in my mind’s eye what I wanted. So, I found the identical pattern to what I wanted, only to find that it was out of print. Hmmm. I had seen this skirt on ModCloth. It’s a clothing site. It has THE CUTEST things ever. They are making skirts out of prints that you
I made a minky scarf as proof that a faux fur scarf can be stylish and easy to make. Young women would especially like this piece, especially if chosen in a minky print that is soft and fun. See the photos for the one I made. I found a pattern that has an opening on one end of it to string the other side through, thus holding it in place.
The caddy is finished and looks so pretty. It’s especially nice with the oranges in the fabric; just when you’d want a warm casserole to take to someone (I mean in Fall and Winter!) See the photo which shows my 9×13 pan in it. The edges fold right over the pan, and the handles (not shown) will not allow it to open up. A tip: There are 4 curved edges
Here is a fabulous pattern made up by Kim Bates. She is a Bungalow Honey! She did a fantastic job with this panel that is available in the shop from Moda. Here’s the link to the panel. https://www.etsy.com/listing/700328396/holiday-lodge-panel-by-deb-strain-on-tan?ga_search_query=deb%2Bstrain&ref=shop_items_search_5&frs=1 There are a lot of prints on this panel, and she made some darling pillows to match. Here is what the panel itself looks like. It’s pretty impressive that there are so
I am really out of my wheel house. I rarely make anything other than garments or quilts. Often times I make tablerunners and napkins, or table accessories. But, I rarely if ever make things that require partitions, heavy duty stabilizers etc. Oh I have made my share of bags to be sure. I sew a lot of things with alternative types of fabric such as Cuddle. I’ve written an entire
This is one of the easiest skirts I have ever made. It was such fun too. I don’t like to stock things in the shop that are limited to people that are of only one size, if you get my drift. I like to make everyone feel pretty, no matter their size. So I try to seek out patterns that are workable for many people. And why not? We try
