Gentleman's Wallet Part 1

Today's sewing was a bust.  I can't belive how many mistakes I made.  Thursday and Friday nights were spent in front of the TV.  I suppose I am paying the price for that today when I can't even read directions!  Here are some photos of my first attempt at the Gentleman's Wallet by Mrs. H. :

Hooded Pepernoot Coat Part 2

I made it through step 13.  This back bodice/yolk is awesome.  I really need to get better lighting.  The steps before this were for the front bodices and yolks.

Hooded Pepernoot Coat

Right about now I am feeling great about this Waffle Pattern.  I had those horrible new project jitters for weeks.  Now that they are mostly under control, I'm feeling like I can do this!

The 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge

I am joining The 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge started by Cheryl from Muppin.com.  The goal is to write a post each day in December.  Maybe I can make up for my lack of posts over the past few months.

 

Today is catch-up day.  Here's what's going on with all the stuff I started a post about but didn't follow up or the stuff I never posted about to begin with:

I've gotten myself behind in a lot of things lately.  I'm currently working on some projects to sell at Chain Reaction Records.  Hopefully, I'll have a real post soon.  In the meantime, check out these awesome carpet bags:

Poly Crepe De Chine Project

Here is project #1.  I used the Poly Crepe De Chine.  The print is "Balance" by scrummy.  The Poly Crepe De Chine is so very beautiful.  It is soft and thin.  When it first arrived, I fell in love, but I had (still have) no idea what to do with it in the real world.  I would love a skirt or a shirt, but the fabric is so very thin anything I make will need to be lined, but then I lose the feel of it on my skin!  What to do?  My next thought was of a nightgown.

Challenging Myself With Sewing Up Some Spoonflower Freebies

For the last year-ish, Spoonflower has been sending out free samples when they start selling a new type of fabric.  The consumer gets to pick the design, and Spoonflower prints it on whatever the new fabric is, and they send out an 8" x 8" sample.  No shipping.

 

I have been hoarding these samples for awhile as I have no idea what to do with an 8' x 8" square of any type of fabric except put it in a quilt.  I don't want to do that, besides, the fabrics I have samples of don't really lend themselves to quilting.

Sewing like crazy writing like crap

...or not at all. 

Here are some photos of what I have been working on.  I hope to get time to write soon.
