The Honey Blouse

 

A few months ago I went to a Treelotta Pop-Up and bought this pretty rayon fabric.  I decided, as I purchased it, that it would be a blouse.  I really don't make blouses.  At that point, the hunt was on to find a pattern...

Not sewing...

My sewing machine is in the shop.  I'm lost.

 

 

Today I cut some things out.  Not good enough.  I've been listening to Chumped.  That helps a tiny bit.

BINGO in March

Still no BINGO for me.  Seriously.  I have been sewing alot (except for when I was sick), but I haven't been focused on the BINGO.  Oh well.  Also, I fell off the wagon bought a bunch of fabric.  Not cool.

 

Here's the Polaris Bag.  It's the March Bag of The Month.  Pattern by Sew Sweetness.

Pepernoot Hooded Coat Complete!

 

I spent a lot of time the past two nights finishing my coat.  The exterior is corduroy and as I was working the dye was staining my fingers.  What!?  So, today it's been washed and soaked and extra rinsed like crazy.  Hopefully it will be leaky no more when I take it out of the dryer.

 

 

Hooded Pepernoot Coat Part 3

 

It's starting to look like a coat finally!  It's awesome.  I sewed the bodice pieces to the bottom pieces, then shoulder seams and side seams.  Next up, I need to get some interfacing bonded on.  I also have not even cut out the lining.  I'm feeling good.  I haven't sewed anything in 2 weeks or so.

BINGO 2016! Join me!

Sewing BINGO rules – Sarah’s Way

The Game - There are 6 BINGO cards.  I intend on working on them beginning with my first project of 2016.  I am choosing (at this moment) to not overlap the projects.  So, even if I am using scraps and making a garment from a Peek-a-Boo Pattern, I am only going to block off a box on one of the cards – EITHER the Pattern Card or the Stash Card but not both.  I hope to only make things that appear on the cards for all of 2016.

 

31 Days... Things I learned

I learned that this challenge was too much for me.  I feel like a total failure.  BUT it's ok!  If you remember, I got a free copy of Zach Anner's book If At Birth You Don't Succeed,  I finished reading it yesterday, and I put up a review on Goodreads.  Free books are cool.  Writing for the public everyday, not so much.

Hemp

Hemp Traders finally has scrap packs back in stock.  It's December!  All of my money is going towards gifts!  Darn it.  I hope they still have some in stock come January.  Bag of The Month starts in January and hopefully some of those scraps will work out for me.

Progress or Not

This 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge has sure been challenging.  

 

The ONLY Christmas gift I am sewing will be started tomorrow.  Time, as usual, has gotten away from me.  This challenge is starting to make me sad.  I did not even get to sit at my sewing machine today, and right now... I just want to sleep.  

 

Let's do the Spoonflower canvas 8" square freebie soon.  Maybe that will kick the creativity back in.
